REPORT: Antonio Conte Heading for Inter Milan Exit

Conte Inter

Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte joined Serie A giants Inter Milan nearly one year ago, however, it seems he could be on his way out of the club.

Conte has taken a rift with the club public and it now looks difficult to recover from the situation with all parties intact, Gianluca Di Marzio reports.

REPORT: Antonio Conte Heading for Inter Milan Exit

Conte Exit Probable

Frictions between Conte and the club have become evident and a parting between club and manager has become the most probable scenario.

Di Marzio writes that only a decisive presidential intervention could heal the fracture.

Inter Milan do not want sack Conte, and instead will expect him to step down.

The former Chelsea boss is contracted to the Serie A side for another two years, worth €12 million per season.

What He Said

“I’m going to have to talk to the president, I don’t like it when people get on the cart. You must always be there. There was no protection, if you are weak it is difficult to protect the team and the coach,” an outspoken Conte said after a 2-0 win over Atalanta to close the Serie A season.

“I will make my assessments,” he added.

This Season so Far

Inter Milan finished second in Serie A, just one point short of title winners Juventus. They have it all to play for in the Europa League. Everything seems fine on the pitch. However, they appear difficult off it.

Who Would Replace Him?

Di Marzio reports that Inter Milan would move straight for former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri.

Allegri actually replaced Antonio Conte at Juventus.

Whilst Conte’s performance as manager on the pitch appears to be going well, Allegri, if he was to take over, could well capitalise and extend his work once again.

Allegri has won Serie A on six occasions and the Coppa Italia on four.

He also guided Juventus to the Champions League final on two occasions, though, losing both.

There’s the slight question about him having been the manager of city rivals AC Milan. But he is up there with the very best managers around, certainly one of the best available.
