It has everything to do with the explosive interview that Conte gave last weekend after the won season finale of Inter against Atalanta Bergamo (0-2). The trainer lashed out at the club management. “I don’t think the work of the players or me is recognized. If you want to close the gap with Juventus, you have to be strong on the field, but also beyond. I would like to speak to the President in China.”
In the Italian newspapers, including Gazzetta dello Sport in Corriere dello Sport, Monday morning there is a lot of speculation about the future of Conte. The trainer may have to pay for his swipe with a discharge, it sounds. Inter would have Massimiliano Allegri and Mauricio Pochettino as potential successors. The two top trainers are clubless after their departure from Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.
Conte joined Inter last year and signed a three-year deal. With the Milanese top club, he matched the score of the year in which Inter won the treble last season (2009/2010).
