Rome: Inter Milan supervisor Antonio Conte apologized on Saturday for “reacting badly to provocation” throughout the Italian Cup midweek fixture at Juventus.
Former Juve boss Conte appeared to level the finger at managers at his former membership at halftime, whereas footage from the broadcaster RAI on the finish of the match, hosts’ chairman Andrea Agnelli apparently informed Conte to “shut up”.
“The reality, everybody has seen it,” stated Conte, who led Juve to a few Serie A titles, on the eve of Inter’s league sport in opposition to Lazio.
“Gamers, coaches, presidents, we have to lead by instance in training.
“I am sorry. I apologize. I reacted badly to a provocation. I may have reacted higher, with applause or a thumbs up. I’ll do not forget that.”
The footage from Tuesday’s incident will not be clear sufficient to indicate the precise nature of Conte’s halftime tirade or exactly their goal, though they definitely seemed to be within the course of the Juve contingent.
The identical goes for Agnelli’s phrases on the finish of the match as he left the stand.
Nevertheless, they’re the topic of an investigation by the Italian Federation.
Conte returns to the bench for the Lazio sport on Sunday, having been banned from the stands for the earlier two video games and fined 20,000 euros ($ 24,000) for verbally threatening the referee after Inter had been held in a 0-0 draw by Udinese.
Inter are second within the Serie A standings, two factors behind metropolis rivals AC Milan.
