Inter Coach Antonio Conte: “Don’t Talk About The Referee, No Lack Of Fury Against Real Madrid”

Inter manager Antonio Conte has stated that he feels referee Anthony Taylor killed the game between themselves and Real Madrid with his decision to show a red card to Nerazzurri central midfielder Arturo Vidal.

Vidal went down in the Real Madrid box and was absolutely adamant that he should have been given a penalty. He was given a yellow card for his complaints and then handed another yellow card just moments later and given his marching orders by the English referee.

“Honestly, don’t talk about refereeing, even if many times the referee must be intelligent and the game is like that,” he began his post-match press conference at San Siro following the defeat to Los Blancos.

“Unless Vidal said something serious, leaving a team with 10 men after just 30 minutes means killing the game but I don’t know what Vidal told him.”

The former Juventus and Italian national team manager then went on to share his thoughts on the game overall, which Inter lost 2-0 due to a penalty from Eden Hazard and a second half strike from substitute Rodrygo.

“It was not a matter of fury, we need to understand the weight of certain games. It was a heavy game from a heavy point of view.

“We played a lot against Real Madrid. It was a match that we couldn’t go wrong in, there was no lack of fury. Maybe we felt that a little bit too much.

“Only time will help us improve in these matches and manage them better.”

Inter have two games left in the group stage which come against Borussia Monchengladbach and Shakhtar Donetsk. They must win both and have some luck in order to make it to the next round.
