Inter Milan player believes his teammate can thrive if only he learned the language better.
Belgian playerRomelu Lukaku
thinks that forChristian Eriksen
to develop his game and fit in the team he needs to put more effort into learning Italian. The formerTottenham
player recently admitted that his move hasn’t been very fruitful since he has been struggling with the team.
According to Lukaku if Eriksen were to overcome his current problems he needs to both learn the language and work closer to his teammates.
"Eriksen has all the qualities to become a top player, and I want to help him. But first, he has to learn Italian," Lukaku said.
“I immediately got used to a new reality, but maybe he will need more time. With the language, he still has some work to do. If he learned Italian I am sure that everything would become easier for him.
”He could communicate better with everyone, team-mates and the coach, and would contribute more to the work of the whole team."
