Antonio Conte has left Inter Milan after winning the Scudetto
On Thursday, Antonio Conte announced his departure from Inter Milan after leading the team to their first Serie A title in 11 years.
Conte was appointed as Inter’s coach in 2019. Since then, Inter has achieved great heights in European competitions.
Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi is likely to replace Conte at the end of the season. Lazio has finished 6th in Serie A this season.
Conte has agreed a deal with Inter’s owners which will see him paid €7m (£6m) for the final year of his contract.
Everything was going fine but Conte got into a dispute with the club’s owners after they proposed a downsizing of his squad.
Conte was reportedly asked to cut his wage bill by 15 to 20 per cent. Inter chairman Steven Zhang arrived at Inter’s headquarters to continue discussions with senior staff on Wednesday morning.
A club gave this statement: “FC Internazionale Milano announces that it has reached an agreement for the consensual termination of the contract with the coach Antonio Conte.
“The whole club would like to thank Antonio for the extraordinary work he has done, which culminated in winning the 19th Scudetto. Antonio Conte will remain forever in the history of our club.”
Zinedine Zidane is all set to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season. He and Conte could replace each other at their respective clubs.
