Italian journalist and transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio discussed the situation involving Inter and coach Antonio Conte, who expressed his unhappiness at the team’s performance after their 2-2 draw against Hellas Verona, in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sports Italia late yesterday evening.
“We are able to try to reconstruct the situation. Inter does not want to reach a point that entails Conte’s dismissal, they want to continue with the coach also in the future.
“It will be necessary to understand if the assessments made by the coach, regarding the squad and the technical aspect, the reinforcements, but also on an organisational level, will be on the same wavelength as those made by the club.”
He then highlighted how Inter and the Lecce born coach could have different objectives and goals.
“These are whether Inter’s improvements and objectives are the same as those of the coach. Will Inter be an immediate winner? Will it focus on young players?
“The club had asked for an improvement and there was a lot of improvement, especially in the first ten games, which perhaps everyone was a bit deluded.”
Finally, Di Marzio discussed Conte’s expectations for this summer’s transfer window and the club’s capabilities to satisfy the former Chelsea and Juve coach.
“Conte expects an important revolution for next season, to win immediately. Inter will be able to have a transfer window with sales and acquisitions, with talented youngsters but not with seven or eight €70-80 million players.”
Inter are currently 4th in the league table, after 31 games. The Nerazzurri sit one point behind third place Atalanta and 10 points behind first place Juventus, struggling to replicate the form they found before the Christmas break.
Conte’s squad have only won three of their last six league games since the restart, drawing one and losing the other two. The Milanese club are hoping for a win against Torino on Monday night.
