Inter’s Curva Nord have launched an angry attack on Steven Zhang today as rumours continue about Antonio Conte leaving.
Conte is widely expected to part company with the Nerazzurri after two seasons in charge, having been alarmed by the prospect of Inter selling key players in the summer.
Zhang has failed to meet with Conte as expected and now it appears nearly certain that Inter will need to find a new head coach.
The Curva Nord voiced their anger in Milan by erecting two banners which read (via FcInterNews.it): “Reducing your ambitions would be idiotic.
“Don’t touch the coach, staff or players.
“Zhang, take responsibility or leave our city.”
Max Allegri is one of several names being linked with replacing Conte, although it seems Inter could miss out as he continues talks with Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli.
Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi is also being strongly rumoured to be in contention, with SempreInter.com exclusively revealing today that Inter had contacted him on Monday.
Sinisa Mihajlovic, Paulo Fonseca and Maurizio Sarri are other names reportedly in the frame to replace Conte if he leaves as expected.
