Former Inter midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron has backed Antonio Conte to succeed as the Nerazzurri’s new head coach.
Conte was appointed on a three-year deal last week and is already hard at work alongside Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio in the transfer market.
Speaking to Sky Sport, Veron admitted he did not know the Italian personally but said his energy would help revitalise the club.
“I only know him for what he’s done at Juventus and Chelsea,” he said.
“Conte is a coach who transfers intensity and passion to his players, but he’s also someone who knows about football.
“I think he’s the right man for the job. I hope he has a strong club behind him.”
Veron made 70 appearances for Inter in two seasons during the mid-2000s, picking up one Supercoppa Italiana winner’s medal and receiving the infamous Serie A league title of 2005-06 which was handed to them after Calciopoli.
