Antonio Conte could quit Inter after rages at club directors. “We all received very little protection from the club. We got zero protection.”
Conte’s furious rant against Inter directors raised genuine doubts as to whether he will remain on the bench next season, with reports suggesting he could quit.
The Nerazzurri closed out the Serie A campaign with a 2-0 victory away to Atalanta, ensuring they finished second in the table, just one point behind Scudetto winners Juventus. Now La Gazzetta dello Sport, La Repubblica and others suggest he could walk away.
“It has been a tough year on a personal level, very tough. I don’t think the players saw their work recognised And I don’t think I saw my work recognised. We all received very little protection from the club,” a visibly irritated Conte told Sky Sport Italia.
“We had to eat dung for months and got zero protection. My problem is that I have a vision. I see the path we have to take and I know what we need to do. I saw the other day an interview that Luciano Spalletti gave at Inter in 2017. We’re now in 2020 and nothing has changed.
It’s believed the Spalletti interview Conte was referring to saw the then-coach claim there were ‘moles’ in the dressing room and the boardroom who leaked damaging information to the media constantly.
Now the newspapers are discussing what will happen next following Conte’s complaints. He is not one to stand around and continue in a situation where he is unhappy.
The coach famously quit Juventus two days into pre-season training after winning three consecutive Serie A titles. While he was fired by Chelsea following a series of increasingly bitter complaints.
