Inter have cancelled Antonio Conte’s press conference in protest at the Corriere dello Sport publishing an “offensive letter” about the coach.
The statement from the club this afternoon came as a surprise and arrived just as the journalists had gathered in the conference room.
“Yesterday, the Corriere dello Sport published an offensive letter towards our coach, justifying its aggression in the comment,” read the statement.
“In order to send a signal to all media that they must ‘guarantee respect of people,’ we will not hold a press conference today.”
This is referring to something published in the letters section of the Corriere dello Sport newspaper on Friday, sent in by a Bologna supporter.
It spoke of “relishing” Inter’s Champions League elimination after a defeat to “the Barcelona B team, which showed the clapped-out coach how you play football.
“I contest the beatification of Conte, who in his career, despite the victories, has never shown good football.”
The editor of the letters section had replied noting Inter “threw away the Champions League” by loaning Mauro Icardi to PSG.
