Inter Coach Antonio Conte One Win Away From Club Record Set By Legendary Nerazzurri Coach Helenio Herrera
Inter coach Antonio Conte has guided his team to a perfect start in the league, with six wins in a row, a number only bettered by Helenio Herrera with his seven wins in a row in the 1966/67 season.
However, Conte will face his biggest challenge so far in the league next week against Juventus, writes Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport.
The match will be Conte’s first league meeting against his former side, whom he to three league titles during his three seasons there as a coach. The Bianconeri are currently two points behind Conte’s Inter, after they dropped points against Fiorentina earlier this month in a disappointing goalless draw in Florence.
The Nerazzurri, who’s first half performance against Sampdoria was their best of the season so far, will be hoping to carry that momentum through next week, first against Barcelona in the Champions League, before facing Juventus on the weekend in the first Derby d’Italia of the season.
