Inter Milan Manager Refute Speculations Claiming Antonio Conte Is Poised to Take Over Next Season

Chelsea, Inter Milan 0 Comment 43

Inter Milan manager Stefan Pioli has refute all claims that Chelsea coach Antonio Conte will take over from him at the San Siro next season.

There has been widespread speculation that the Nezazzuri manager plans to quit and Conte could be set to leave Stamford Bridge after just one season, but it seems as if these reports are misleading.

Aletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone has also been tipped with the Inter job, as the club is keen on bringing their lost glory after several years wallowing in the doldrums of the Serie A table, with no hope of Champions League football in five seasons.

However, the Inter boss has put aside the rumours of a more high-profile coach arriving San Siro to take over from him in Milan.

“Rumours of other coaches are just part of football,” he said in a press conference, as quoted by the Daily Star.

“However, I do not lose the belief that I can do well for this club. The team have important values, with great young players who can do very well.

“We have to look to close the gap on the top teams and aspire to be amongst the best.”

Pioli arrived at Inter in November, replacing Frank de Boer after the Dutch boss finding it difficult to cope with the club high demands.

So far this season, he has done a good job in bringing balance to the club. The San Siro outfit still sit in sixth, five points behind Napoli in the final Champions League spot, but things are certainly starting to improve.

The Italian club’s new owners, Suning Commerce Group, are looking to invest heavily in the team this summer and this may bring a change in manager with Pioli only having an 18-month contract. However, it seems that the Blues manager will not be that replacement they’re seeking.
