The love between Conte and Inter has never blossomed. During the season, the technician launched several public attacks on his company. We assess the situation.
Inter have been eliminated from the Champions League and the Italian Cup and ended second in the league, despite this, Conte feels entitled to publicly break through his club because he closed just one point behind Juventus (even if the bianconeri have detached the plug for some time …).
The attack a few hours ago marked the definitive break between the technician from Salento and his club but the whole season was characterized by differences that Conte never hid at the press conference.
The first problems between Conte and his new club were for the transfer market. Already last summer, the former Juventus coach complained about the delay with which Lukaku was purchased and about the non-arrival of Dzeko.
Then, close to the market session in January, Conte returned to complain to force his company to satisfy him. Although his attitude was not liked by the Chinese property, Conte was satisfied with the purchase of Eriksen, a footballer who soon ended up on the margins of his technical project.
It seemed that the former Juventus coach couldn't do without Eriksen and instead now he practically never does it.
Here is Conte's complaint dated 14 January:
"Football? There are not many pennies. We will have to be good at finding situations that for many reasons can bring us benefits. The manager was clear. We will have to be good at doing cheap operations, otherwise I see it hard.
There is not much to explain. When you can't make money, you have to do it with wit. "
The political weight of Inter.
Satisfied in all respects on the transfer market, Conte found another excuse to break through his current club.
According to the former Juventus coach, his club has no political weight and counts for nothing in the button room of Italian football.
Conte said it in no uncertain terms saying that its leaders were sleeping while Inter was assigned a prohibitive schedule with games every 2-3 days.
“Our calendar is crazy, a calendar made to put us in trouble. The teams we played with have always had an extra day of rest, you pay for these things in the long run.
There is a strange anomaly. If you want to be honest, see what happened in the last round.
We see that we were not present when they drew up the calendars. For us it is a crazy calendar , others have 5 days off.
The calendar seems magical to me, the compromises always seem to me negative for Inter. It will be strange if they slap him at Inter .
This has been the case in the past and it still is. If you go to see on the last day something incredible has happened.
And for this I say that the boys are commendable and support incredible rhythms. We come to Rome, drawing against an excellent team, we are less than 5 from Juve ".
And here we are in the outburst of a few hours ago. According to Conte, the second place is all thanks to him and the players. Not executives.
Indeed, executives have been blamed for not protecting him publicly from press attacks.
So these leaders don't have to risk getting on the bandwagon now (but since when is second place celebrated ?!).
“Once the Europa League is over – Conte tells DAZN – we will do the evaluations for the next season. I will make my evaluations, the company his.
Technical evaluations? No, in general, in everything ”.
Conte becomes even more explicit to Sky Sport:
“For us it was a very hard and difficult year in all respects, including personal ones. As soon as possible, many criticisms were made.
I didn't like what was done towards these guys and sometimes towards me.
The boys' work was not recognized, my work was not recognized, I found very little protection from the club. Absolute zero.
There will also be talk to the president, but the president is in China …
I don't like it when people get on the cart, it has to be in both positive and negative moments, it wasn't like that at Inter Milan, I'm sorry to say.
Today I saw so many people getting on the wagon that should not get on, when instead the shovel shovels took me and the players.
Everyone tried to grow their own vegetable garden. I always put my face in front of everyone, but up to a certain point, because one is not stupid. Lightning rod one does it the first year, the second does not … "(sources Sky Sport, Dazn and La Gazzetta dello Sport).
