Conte told reporters – after his team’s 2-0 victory over Atlanta on Saturday, to finish the season in second place, one point behind the champion Juventus – that he did not think “that the work done by the players was appreciated, and I do not think my work was appreciated.”
“We all got very little protection from the club. We must develop and improve in all aspects, especially on the field, and any big club must protect its players more.”
“We will discuss that at the end of the season, I have to meet President (Stephen Chang) who is in China right now. I don’t like people joining the criticism, they must be in the good times and also in the bad times, and here in Inter it wasn’t the case.”
This is not the first time that Conte has publicly complained about the club.
Last November, Conte criticized poor planning, saying the squad was too small to compete in the Italian League and Champions League. The club responded by signing several contracts in January’s transfer window.
Inter are still competing in the European League, facing Getafe in the price of the final, which is held from one match. Conte said that he would make his decision after the end of the season.
“After the European League, we will make decisions about next season. I will make up my mind, and the club will make his decision,” he concluded.
