Inter Boss Antonio Conte Leaves By Mutual Consent

Antonio Conte has left Inter Milan by mutual consent, leaving the club immediately, just weeks after guiding them to the Serie A league title.

Inter captured their first league title in 11 years just over three weeks ago, ending Juventus' run of nine titles in-a-row.

However it's not taken long for life to come crashing back down for the Nerazzurri amongst financial problems that have seen Conte walk away.

That clearly hasn't gone down well with the former Juve boss, who started their dominance, and he has been released from his contract a year early.

Sky Italia reported that "Conte was not convinced by the partial downsizing proposed by the club, with the possible sale of a big player."


Conte will reportedly get €7 million of the €13 million he had left on his contract to leave immediately and it makes him eligible to find a new job straight away.

The 51-year-old has been linked with the vacant position at Tottenham Hotspur, with reports claiming he's already held talks with the north London club.

The former midfielder is also reportedly on Real Madrid's list as potential candidates to take over from Zinedine Zidane, should the Frenchman decide to leave, having previously turned Los Blancos down before.

As well as the manager, it has been reported that the players have also been asked to take a pay freeze for two months because of the club's financial problems.

The club are owned by Chinese company Suning Holdings Group. Suning owned Chinese Super League team Jiangsu FC.

Jiangsu won their first CSL title in November 2020 and within months the company had decided to shut the club down 'to focus on their core retail business in the country.'

Whilst shutting the whole club down is unlikely to happen to Inter, it's without doubt that things at the San Siro are far from healthy, so soon after their title triumph.
