After a clash with Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli following the Coppa Italia semi-final tie, Inter coach Antonio Conte was angry.

Following Inter’s Coppa Italia semi-final exit, Antonio Conte was left fuming over a heated post-match exchange with Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli.

In the second leg at the Allianz Stadium, the Milan-based side was held to a tense 0-0 draw as the Old Lady progressed to the final, 2-1 on aggregate, before ugly scenes reportedly erupted after the final whistle.

Media outlet RAI claimed that at half-time, Conte made an offensive gesture towards his former employer Agnelli, and the Juve chief retaliated as the teams left the field by verbally assaulting the Inter coach.

In the second leg at the Allianz Stadium, the Milan-based side was held to a tense 0-0 draw as the Old Lady progressed to the final, 2-1 on aggregate, before ugly scenes reportedly erupted after the final whistle.

Media outlet RAI claimed that at half-time, Conte made an offensive gesture towards his former employer Agnelli, and the Juve chief retaliated as the teams left the field by verbally assaulting the Inter coach.

In his post-match interview, Conte criticized the behavior of his former club but stopped short of pointing any fingers.

‘Juventus needs to say the truth,’ said Conte to RAI. I assume the fourth official noticed and saw in the match what had happened.

“In my opinion, they should be more respectful. For those who work, they need more sportsmanship and reverence.

Between 2011 and 2014, Conte coached in Turin and led the Bianconeri to three Serie A titles before taking on Italy’s job in charge after the 2014 World Cup.

At his post-match news conference, the 51-year-old was asked about the incident, but he declined to elaborate.

“What happened at the end of the game? I have neither the desire nor the pleasure to comment on anything,” said Conte.

“I think that in all things there must be education. Enough.”

As Andrea Pirlo’s side hunt for a 14th Coppa Italia triumph, the competition’s most prolific team, Juventus, advance to the final to meet Atalanta or Napoli.
