Milan mayor Beppe Sala believes Antonio Conte’s exit from Inter shows he was probably right to voice concerns about Suning.

Conte parted company by mutual consent on Wednesday and Inter will replace him with former Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi, after a frantic day of talks yesterday.

Sala provoked an angry reaction from the Nerazzurri in March when he said they couldn’t progress with plans to build a new stadium until Suning clarified their ownership situation.

Speaking to reporters in Milan on Thursday, Sala argued (via Calcio e Finanza): “I’m always open to dialogue on San Siro.

“What’s for certain is that Inter insulted me simply because I allowed myself to seek reassurance, before entrusting a €1.2 billion project on our own territory.

“Perhaps I was right.

“Life is full of disagreements though, and I’m ready to listen to Inter again because that’s my duty.”

Conte left Inter after two years in charge in which he led the club to their first Serie A title since way back in 2010.

Sala, who is also an Inter supporter, added on Conte: “We wrote to each other in the last few days, and let’s say that I’d understood it was going to end like this.

“It’s a shame because when you win the league, much of the credit goes to the coach.

“Conte has been brilliant, but a fan is a fan and we’ll go forwards.”

Sala also revealed he was desperate for fans to be allowed back into stadiums, which has not been possible since last March in Italy due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I’ve promised my Inter-supporting friends that I’ll get a season ticket for the second tier at San Siro if we can,” Milan’s city mayor admitted.

“I’ll do it with them, because these are the moments in which you need to stay close to the team.

“I hope, as a fan, that I can return to the stadium.”
