"Stop Busting My Balls!" Classic Conte Outburst At Arturo Vidal In Inter Win


"Stop Busting My Balls!" Classic Conte Outburst At Arturo Vidal In Inter Win

Antonio Conte has never been known as the calmest man in football, and even Inter Milan making it eight wins from eight in Serie A wasn't enough to stop him losing his rag on the sidelines on Sunday.

The Italian screamed: "Arturo, play and don't bust my balls!" when the Chilean argued with the referee after giving away a penalty in the first half against Crotone.

Crotone's Vladimiar Golemic scored from the resulting spot kick to make it 2-2 after 36 minutes at the San Siro, and Conte clearly didn't want his experienced star to add to the difficulties by getting a card for abusing the official.


It stayed 2-2 until half time, when it seems that Conte may have been just as angry in his team talk - as whatever he said inspired the Nerazzuri to score four goals in the second half and win 6-2.

Another half time move that may have helped was the substitution of Vidal, who was dragged off for Stefano Sensi after his awful first 45 minutes.

The three points put Inter top of Serie A before AC Milan played, and it looks like they will end the day in second place as their local rivals are beating Benevento 2-0 at the time of writing.


Next up for Inter are Sampdoria midweek before facing AS Roma on the weekend. Juventus' struggles under Andrea Pirlo have opened the title race up, and Conte will be hopeful that his team can continue their winning streak to keep the pressure on AC Milan.
