The 1/2 final match of the Italian Cup between Juventus and Inter was scandalous. But Antonio Conte, the head coach of Inter admits that his behavior was not exemplary.
The return match of the Italian Cup Semi-Final, in which Juventus hosted Inter Milan in Turin, turned out to be scandalous. Milan head coach Antonio Conte showed his middle finger to the Turin club’s management, which was also recorded by the camera. In response to this, the president of Juventus, Andrea Agnelli, did not address Conte correctly after the game.
Inter Milan head coach Antonio Conte later apologized to the media:
“I want to apologize for the wrong response to the insult. I could have answered differently, so everything would have ended more positively.
I’m sorry, and this will be a lesson for me in the future. Insult and provocation cannot be judged. I should not have answered like that. Everyone saw what happened at Juventus Stadium, but we, the coaches, the players and the presidents, need to be an example. “Insults and provocations can also be responded in other ways,” Conte was quoted as saying by Italian media.
The Italian Cup semi-final’s return match ended in a goalless draw in Turin, and thanks to the advantage gained in the first leg match (2: 1), The Old Lady reached the final, which will face Bergamo Atalanta for the title.
Inter Milan have 47 points after 21 games in Serie A and are second in the standings. Milan is in first place with 49 points. Conte’s team will play its next match on February 14, at home against Lazio.
