According to a report in today’s print edition of Gazzetta dello Sport, there were three reasons behind Inter manager Antonio Conte’s outburst during his post-match interview duties following Inter’s 3-2 loss away to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
The first reason was that he wanted to make it clear that Inter’s success this season, particularly domestically, was not planned but rather as a result of a good job being done by Conte and the team he has.
The second reason was that he wanted to make it clear that he wants to win, not just try to win. If in January, moves that should have been completed in the Summer could well help Inter to continue to bother Juventus at the top of the table.
Finally, it was to stress his disappointment at how poor some of the players have been this season such as Diego Godin, Matteo Politano, Roberto Gagliardini and Matias Vecino.
The report from the Milanese newspaper goes on to state that Conte would like at least two new signings made in the January window.
Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is a possibility, as is Atalanta’s Dejan Kulusevski, who is currently starring out on loan at Parma. Arturo Vidal, a player Conte sees as an ideal addition, is a distant possibility at the moment.
