82 points, one from Juventus, playing the scudetto until the final stage and hoping to win the Europa League, his first title in almost a decade. The situation at Inter did not point to crisis despite some bad results, but Antonio Conte opened the thunder box last Saturday.
“I have seen free attacks on the team and myself, and I have seen little protection from the club. So these 82 points are deserved by the players and me. This is mine, the staff and the soccer players. We should talk to the president, who is in China … I don’t like those who get on the car, in the car you have to be right and wrong. Unfortunately, this at Inter has not happened. Someone gets on the car, but the mountain of shit has fallen on me and on the players … Each one has looked for his parcel, without protecting me or the footballers, “said the coach. in the press room after finishing the League.
Antonio Conte defended his work and that of his players by attacking the property and opening a schism that has a difficult solution. According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Conte’s words have greatly tightened the rope with the directive, which, on the other hand, still values his work this year. The distance with Juve has been significantly reduced in one season, they are a clear contender for the Europa League, they have managed the best Lukaku and also attract Achraf to Milan among many other things. In addition, another reason for his stay would be that his departure would not be cheap, since he receives 11 million per season and has a contract until 2022.
A few days after having to face Getafe, Inter hopes that Conte will not rebel again, but, meanwhile, he is preparing a plan B for what may come when the season ends. If Conte left, according to this transalpine newspaper, the chosen one for Inter’s bench is Max Allegri. The one from Livorno would replace Conte again as it already happened at Juventus in 2014, where he increased the winning cycle that the former central juventino started.
At the end of last season, Allegri left Juventus and, after a year unemployed, would be ready to return to the bench and more if it is in Italy. Overthrowing his own project, now in the hands of Sarri, would be his main mission. But it all depends on Conte.
