Nerazzurri Legend Marco Materazzi: “Antonio Conte Like José Mourinho, Both Left Inter At The Wrong Time”

Former Inter defender Marco Materazzi believes that had Antonio Conte stayed on as coach for next season, he could have enjoyed more success at the club following last season’s title win.

In an interview broadcast yesterday afternoon on Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, the former Italian international and Inter legend spoke at length on the situation at his former club Inter.

Materazzi compared the departure of Antonio Conte to former coach Jose Mourinho’s decision to leave the club for Real Madrid after winning the treble in 2010, a season in which Materazzi was still an Inter player.

“With Jose in Italy we would have continued to win, and that’s what I told him in the days before he moved to Madrid to try and convince him to stay,” Materazzi explained.

Similarly, the former Inter man wishes that Conte would have continued his Inter project, as he still supports the club.

Materazzi was not, however, pessimistic about the direction of the club, stating that he believes that the club can win the Scudetto under new coach Simone Inzaghi as long as they don’t let go of Romelu Lukaku “who scores thirty goals a year.”
