Former Italy international Antonio Cassano said Christian Eriksen can become the new Andrea Pirlo of Antonio Conte’s Inter.

Cassano has always defended the Denmark international when appearing on Bobo TV, and the former Milan and Roma attacker continued to praise the former Tottenham player.

Eriksen has delivered improved performances in recent games and ahead of the match against Juventus in the Coppa Italia, Cassano compares the situation to when Pirlo played for Conte at the Bianconeri.

Cassano has always defended the Denmark international when appearing on Bobo TV, and the former Milan and Roma attacker continued to praise the former Tottenham player.

Eriksen has delivered improved performances in recent games and ahead of the match against Juventus in the Coppa Italia, Cassano compares the situation to when Pirlo played for Conte at the Bianconeri.

“We are talking about a great champion,” Cassano said. “He just needed confidence. It’s not that he learned how to play football today.

“Conte is changing his mind, I hope he can give him continuity to gain confidence.

“Eriksen is a less strong [Luka] Modric, but the Croatian wouldn’t play for Conte, since he doesn’t defend.

“I always remember Pirlo. Conte’s idea of Juventus wasn’t with Pirlo. Conte then found Pirlo, with some pushes from old and current senators. He invented the 3-5-2 and won everything.”
