Ex-Inter Boss Andrea Stramaccioni: “Conte & Marotta Pivotal For Serie A Title, Nerazzurri Should Sign Chelsea’s Kante”

Inter should revive their interest for Chelsea midfielder Ngolo Kante in the summer, according to a former Nerazzurri boss.

Antonio Conte’s side are likely to need reinforcements if they are to take their Serie A success into the UEFA Champions League next season.

Kante was a transfer target for Conte last summer before Inter were priced out of a deal, as per a report in Italy last week.

Andrea Stramaccioni wants Inter to go back in for the Frenchman now, telling Adnkronos (via FcInterNews.it): “It’s better to sign a player who is clearly capable of giving you an upgrade, like Kante for example.

“Conte’s philosophy is to rely on a limited group of players and so that’s another reason to act in this manner.”

Inter were confirmed as Serie A champions on Sunday for the first time since 2010, after they beat Crotone and Atalanta were held to a draw by Sassuolo.

Stramaccioni believes Inter’s turning point was actually a match that didn’t take place in the league, when Conte’s side went to Juventus for their Coppa Italia semi-final second leg in February.

“Inter’s elimination at the Allianz Stadium was their lowest point of the season,” Inter’s former head coach argued.

“You saw at that moment how much the club and the players were behind Conte, because Inter could have fallen apart after that.

“What made the difference was Conte’s ability to be a leader, along with the solidity of the club and a director like Beppe Marotta who knew him very well.

“Conte and Marotta’s partnership is a guarantee because Conte is a particular coach who needs somebody that believes in him.”
