Italian Journalist Paolo Condo: “Inter Are At War & Coach Antonio Conte Is Like Al Pacino”

Inter will be unaffected by uncertainty behind the scenes as they challenge for the Serie A title after adopting a wartime mentality, Italian journalist Paolo Condo claims.

Antonio Conte’s side moved top of the table after a 2-0 victory over Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi yesterday evening, courtesy of goals from midfielders Nicolo Barella and Ivan Perisic.

Despite their dominance on the pitch, financial concerns and uncertainty over the ownership of the club are growing, with Suning in negotiations to sell the club and player and staff wages for November and December deferred until May.

Speaking on Italian television station Sky Sport Italia, Condo claimed that Inter’s players had used the distractions as a means of unifying to target the title, whilst they had the perfect coach for the situation in Conte, who was likened to actor Al Pacino in the film Any Given Sunday.

“In my opinion, the problems at the club will not affect Inter’s Scudetto ambitions, certainly not in the short term because Conte is a leader in times of war,” Condo declared.

“Now Inter are at war, even financially. I see a lot of Al Pacino in Conte, entering the dressing room and demanding the team give their all on the pitch. When I say short term, I mean until the spring. Until March 31, I believe the team won’t be affected.”

Inter look to continue their title challenge when they welcome Lazio to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza next weekend, whilst AC Milan face Crotone tomorrow and Spezia next Saturday.
