Antonio Conte Showed His Middle Finger To Juventus' President At Half-Time

 

Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte reportedly showed his middle finger to Juventus president Andrea Agnelli during a heated exchange on Tuesday evening.

The two sides met in the second leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final clash and things got heated between Conte and Agnelli.

At half-time, television cameras caught Conte flipping the bird at Agnelli who was high in the stands.

Sky Sports Italia per Metro report a row erupted at full-time with Agnelli shouting: "F**k off, shut up a**hole."

The game ended 0-0 and Juventus advanced 2-1 on aggregate having won the first leg thanks to two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo.

Conte was asked about the war of words at full-time and he refused to go into any detail.

He explained: "They should tell the truth, the fourth official saw what happened the whole game, they should be more polite.

"There is nothing to say but more sportsmanship and respect is needed for those who work.

"What happened at the end of the game? I have neither the desire nor the pleasure to comment on anything.

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

Last season saw the former Chelsea boss get involved in a touchline dispute with Ever Banega during the Europa League final, offering him a fight outside.

Juve soaked up Inter pressure throughout the game and veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was rarely challenged between the sticks.

Manager Andrea Pirlo joked about the performance and likened it to that of former boss Max Allegri.

"It's nice to hear. If I have to win what he won, you can also call me Allegriano," the 41-year-old said per BlackWhiteReadAllOver.

"Every match is different and we prepare in a different way. Inter have almost no shots on goal and we had opportunities, we are very satisfied.

"Since the beginning of the season we have been defending with 4-4-2 but we play in a totally different way. Based on how our opponents come to press us, we decide on how to break out, it's only the defence that remains in the 4-4-2.

"As a debutant it was my plan to win a Supercoppa, to reach the Final of the Coppa Italia and the last 16 of the Champions League.

"As a player it was easier, it ended after the game. As a coach, you have to think about the next game immediately, you have to think for 30 different heads.

"But we haven't achieved anything yet, now we'll rest and prepare for Saturday's match."
