Antonio Conte returns to visit the headquarters of his former club, Juventus for the second time as coach of the rival team, Inter Milan. However, this second away impression was not good, Conte seemed annoyed with his former club which he considered impolite.
As is known, Antonio Conte does have a long history with the Bianconneri, where he once coached the Turin club as a player and coach. When he became a coach, Conte even successfully presented 3 Scudetto Trophies.
Spending a long time as a player and coach of Juventus, of course, made Conte know exactly how the rivalry between the Bianconneri and Inter Milan. Ironically, the tactician actually accepted when there was an offer from the Nerazzurri two years ago.
Conte has visited Allianz Stadium twice as coach of Inter Milan, most recently on Wednesday morning WIB (10/02) in the second leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final.
However, the impression of the second away match looked bad for the former Italian national team coach. Several times in these matches, Conte appeared to protest to the referee, especially when the court did not award a penalty to his team in the 10th minute.
Conte’s excessive protests throughout the match made defender Leonardo Bonucci annoyed and sprayed his former coach.
“Please respect the referee!” said the defender, who sparked a tense moment between himself and Conte.
Not only that, President Andrea Agnelli who also watched the match from the stands also approached the bench to shout at Conte.
“Shut up, bitch oak.” So said Agnelli in the camera catch.
Of course Conte was annoyed with the attitude of the two important figures at Juventus, especially since he had worked together to achieve success in the past.
“Juventus should be honest, I think the fourth referee heard and saw what happened throughout the match,”
“In my opinion, they should be more polite. They need more sportsmanship and respect for the people who work,” Conte told RAI Sport after the match.
The match ultimately ended with the score equally strong 0-0, but Juventus had the right to qualify for the final after a 2-1 victory in the first leg.
