Safe to say a few niceties were exchanged between Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte and Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli as an ugly row marred the Coppa Italia fixture last night.
Antonio Conte’s stocks with his former club are probably at an all-time low as things went down in the second leg fixture of the semi-final between Inter Milan and Juventus at the Allianz Stadium.
The match turned out to be a goalless draw as the Old Lady went through to the final courtesy of their 2-1 win the first leg.
What happened between Conte and Agnelli
It was a feisty affair between the two Italian juggernauts.
According to Sky Sports Italia, tensions rose high when Inter boss Antonio Conte took offence to Leonardo Bonucci’s remarks in the first half.
The anxiety got worse as the two sets of players and management including Andrea Agnelli were involved in a scuffle near the half-time.
The Juventus executive was soon subjected to an offensive gesture at the hands of Conte as the former Chelsea manager showed his middle finger to Agnelli when the referee blew the half-time whistle –
There was more to follow according to Italian sports journalist and TV presenter Fabio Ravezzani as Agnelli retorted by telling Antonio Conte to stick that finger where the sun don’t shine at the end of the game.
This was again followed by a ruckus in the tunnel.
Pressure keeps mounting on Antonio Conte after a draw in Turin knocks them out of the prestigious cup competition.
The angry Italian probably needs to deliver a trophy this season to keep his job and the only opportunity now left is the league where they trail city rivals AC Milan by two points in the second spot in the table.
