Antonio Cassano seems unimpressed by Inter: ‘They don’t play great football and were ridiculous in Champions League.’
The Nerazzurri beat Genoa 3-0 on Sunday and enjoy a four-point lead over Milan on top of the Serie A table.
They have been knocked out of the Champions League and Coppa Italia.
“If we had been in the Champions League right now, I think we could’ve had our say in that tournament,” Conte said after Sunday’s victory, but Cassano thinks otherwise.
“Did Conte understand he is not Guardiola? Have his say in the Champions League? Come on. I am not dumb. Serie A is mediocre, Europe is something else. Inter are not dominating,” he told Bobo TV on Twitch.
“They’ve been playing differently with Eriksen, they seem more solid, but they don’t play great football. Atalanta do.
“Inter sit deep and wait for their opponents’ move, then they try to reach Lukaku with long balls.
“Inter must win the title. They are going to win it. But they don’t play well.
“If Conte made serious mistakes, it’s only his fault. Inter were ridiculous in Champions League. They finished behind Shakhtar.”
Antonio Conte continues to discuss Inter tactics on social media: ‘Ten different players involved in a move that lasts for over a minute…’
Conte recently launched his Instagram account, where he shares videos of games or private life.
Last week, the former Chelsea coach asked his followers if they prefer tiki-taka or a direct style of play.
Today, he shared a new video where he showed one of Inter’s actions from their last game against Genoa.
“Thank you for all the answers and comments below my previous post.10 different players involved in a move that lasts for over a minute prior to the team getting a shot away,” he wrote.
“What do you consider this to be? Tika-taka? A direct style of play? Or… something in between?”
Inter are the Serie A table leaders with 56 points in 24 games and enjoy a four-point lead over second-placed Milan.
Chelsea loanee Victor Moses says Antonio Conte is the best coach he’s ever had and reveals he could have returned to Inter.
Conte coached Moses during his spells at Chelsea and Inter.
The Nigeria international, who is on loan to Spartak Moscow from the Blues, spent six months on loan at Inter last season.
“Conte is the best coach I’ve ever had,” the 30-year-old told Spartak.com.
“He helped me believe in myself. And the point is precisely in the human attitude, not because I found a new position on the right flank.
“I was ready to return [to Inter] before I joined Spartak. I had already discussed everything with Conte. But something did not work. Perhaps the financial situation has struck, I do not know.
“At some point, the directors of Spartak have made contact with my agents.
“Marina Granovskaya spoke to my agent and explained why Spartak was the best option.
“At that point, I started googling the club myself, and I watched several videos. I realized how important the team’s history is. Therefore, I immediately accepted their offer.”
Pirelli’s CEO Marco Tronchetti Provera confirms Inter will change their shirt sponsors from next season.
Pirelli has been Inter’s shirt sponsor for the last 27 years and this is the last season where its name will feature in the Nerazzurri’s game kits.
“We are in talks with Antonello, Marotta and other Inter directors. We won’t be Inter’s kit sponsor anymore, but our relationship with the club will continue,” Tronchetti Provera told Gr Parlamento.
Suning confirmed last week they will financially support Inter although they are looking for “suitable partners” and Tronchetti Provera has no concerns regarding the club’s future.
“We have to stick to the facts, they had a cash injection and the company confirmed its commitment to Inter. Therefore, I think there should be a normal path,” he claimed.
