According to Conte, there are different views in the club: “In order to build something successful, we need harmony.”

Conte had only taken over the coaching position of the 18-time Italian champions at the beginning of the season and led the last stumbling Nerazzurri to the best season in ten years.
Conte sharply criticized the club leadership in early August
Nevertheless, the former Italian national coach had harshly criticized the Chinese club leadership of the Milanese headed by President Steven Zhang after the last league game at the beginning of August and thus fueled the rumors of departure. “I don’t think the players’ work has been recognized and I don’t think my work has been recognized,” he said at the time. “We all received very little protection from the club, absolutely none.
