Luciano Spalletti just took Inter into the Champions League for the second year running, yet Antonio Conte could be announced over the next few days.
The Nerazzurri squeezed past Empoli 2-1 at San Siro and finished the season in fourth place, level on points with Atalanta, but behind on head-to-head difference.
According to Sky Sport Italia pundit Gianluca Di Marzio, Conte will be announced as the new Inter Coach over the next few days.
The tactician could even accompany the Inter directors when they attend the Champions League Final in Barcelona between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
Spalletti seemed almost to acknowledge the situation in his post-match Press conference.
“The club will talk now and I will listen, just as you will. I would be happy to remain at Inter. The papers have had the same headlines for three months, so we’ll see what happens.”
He also referenced the chaos after Mauro Icardi was stripped of the captain’s armband, then there were negotiations behind the scenes with lawyers before he’d resume full training.
“In my view, what you need to do at a big club like Inter is not go back on decisions once they are made. That causes complications, because you are no longer consistent or believable.
“If you make a decision, deal with the fallout and then change it again, you’re creating three problems.”
