Antonio Conte left Inter because he didn’t have enough certainty about what would happen next season, according to Massimo Moratti.
Inter parted company with Conte by mutual consent on Wednesday after he had two seasons in charge, leading the club to their first Serie A title in 11 years earlier this month.
The Nerazzurri have lined up Simone Inzaghi to replace Conte and will unveil their new head coach at some point in the coming days.
“I think Conte’s departure was different to those of his (Inter) predecessors,” Inter’s former owner and president Moratti told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli today.
“He’s a very ambitious coach and you can see he didn’t get the right kind of reassurance about the project.
“It’s better to leave Inter having won something, like others have done in the past…”
Moratti was also asked for his thoughts on Jose Mourinho, who spent two years working under him at Inter and has now joined Roma ahead of next season.
“Roma have made a fantastic signing in Mourinho,” Moratti argued.
“Who would have thought it, perhaps he could have returned to Inter; I’d have been happy with that.”
Mourinho was set to renew his bitter rivalry with Conte after the pair clashed during their spells together in the Premier League.
The Special One will have to find new enemies though because Inter will have Inzaghi on their bench instead now.
