Conte Praises Inter’s Attitude

Inter Manager Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte made it clear his Inter players still needed to fully embrace his tactics but admired their “refusal to accept defeat” against Valencia.

Inter Beat Valenica On Penalties

Inter beat Valencia on penalties

Inter were impeccable from the spot, as they drew 1-1 with Valencia thanks to a Matteo Politano penalty and then won the Trofeo Naranja in a shoot-out.

Romelu Lukaku scored four times for Inter Milan in his first game since his €75 million move from Manchester United.

Antonio Conte warned Inter “need to work on everything” after a 1-0 friendly defeat to Manchester United, while Romelu Lukaku “could improve our team.” The Nerazzurri were almost always on the back foot in Singapore, rescued twice by the woodwork, and the only goal came from Mason Greenwood after Samir Handanovic’s save in this International [...]

Inter Milan Coach Antonio Conte

A disappointing Inter side lost to Manchester United 1-0 on Saturday in the International Champions Cup game, but the scoreline flattered Inter as United hit the post twice and forced Samir Handanovic into several good saves. This was Antonio Conte’s first defeat on the Inter bench and he still had no genuine strikers at his [...]

Inter Stumble Into Champions League

With Antonio Conte apparently waiting in the wings to claim the Inter throne, Luciano Spalletti might not be in the mood to celebrate his side’s Champions League qualification. In truth, Inter should have wrapped up a top-four finish weeks ago but a run of one win in their five previous games prior to the visit [...]

Samir Handanovic

As they are prone to do, Inter made it difficult for themselves before beating Empoli 2-1 at the San Siro to secure Champions League football for next season and send Empoli down. Inter started the game full of energy and determination, reminiscence of the first half of the Milan Derby, but they could not find [...]

Inter Milan manager Luciano Spalletti

Luciano Spalletti confessed Inter’s 4-1 defeat to Napoli was painful and against Empoli “it really is a Final. It’s do or die and we can’t get that wrong.” The Nerazzurri have dropped down to third place, due to their inferior head-to-head record with Atalanta, and are just one point clear of Milan. “We started the [...]
