Conte Must Have Inter’s Backing To Succeed, Former Nerazzurri Forward Warns

Antonio Conte will not bring success to Inter unless the club’s hierarchy give him their full backing, according to the Nerazzurri’s former striker Carlo Muraro.

Inter’s new boss criticised the lack of transfer activity on Friday before the 1-0 defeat against Manchester United in the International Champions Cup.

Muraro made more than 150 appearances across three spells for Inter, helping them win the 1980 Serie A title under Eugenio Bersellini.

“Conte is an exemplary professional and has everything a club needs to aim for important results,” Muraro told Milano Sportiva.

“He brings grit, determination and a hunger to win and he’s more than capable of transferring those qualities to his players.

“They’re not enough on their own, though, because everyone needs to be behind him. Everyone needs to support Conte from the top to the bottom of the club and he needs a clear project.

“In other words, Inter need to put Conte in a position to succeed by investing correctly in the transfer market. They’ve done well this summer but they need to do more.”

Muraro awarded 7/10 to Inter’s business thus far, which has seen the likes of Diego Godin and Nicolo Barella move to San Siro.

“Godin is physically strong and will form a great defensive wall with Stefan De Vrij and Milan Skriniar,” he added.

“Barella is a resourceful youngster who can play in any position across a midfield three, particularly as a deep-lying play-maker.

“If Inter then signed a physically strong midfielder who can make forward runs and score a few goals, they would have the ideal bridge to their attackers.”

Lautaro Martinez is not enough on his own up front while Edin Dzeko and Romelu Lukaku are still to arrive.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if Inter surprised us all with a big signing at the last minute,” Muraro concluded.
