Italian football journalist Fabrizio Biasin has downplayed the idea that Inter manager Antonio Conte could be sacked or leave his post come the end of the season.
There has been a lot of speculation in the media as of late concerning Conte’s future in charge of the Nerazzurri side and following last night’s 3-1 win over Torino, Conte insisted that if people were not happy with the job he has done/is doing, he would be the first to step aside and would not be a burden on the club.
“The league position is good, the mood is so-so. They’re refelcting on the future, on the “Conte being dissatisfied” issue. A change on the bench seems frankly unlikely to me, even if only for economic reasons, but it is true that more clarity is needed between the manager and management,” Biasin wrote in his latest editorial piece for Italian news outlet TuttoMercatoWeb.
Biasin then went on to suggest that the business carried out in the upcoming transfer window can certainly help the current situation.
“The transfer market will help (Zhang is ready to invest but not for Kante or Alaba, two of many names mentioned in the last few days) and a few more smiles before the end of the season…could do the rest.”
Conte took charge of Inter this past Summer and signed a three year contract with the club. The former Italian national team boss has managed Inter in 43 matches to date, of which he has won 25.
