You act as if we bought half of Real Madrid: Antonio Conte

The Inter Milan manager doesn’t like that people are expecting too much from his Serie A club after their January spending spree.

During the winter transfer window, Internazionale Milan has brought Ashley Young, Victor Moses, and will soon bring Christian Eriksen.

But for coach Antonio Conte, this doesn’t mean his team automatically can win the Italian Lega Serie A, where they are four points behind Juventus.

“People continue to ignore me when I say we are starting a journey, but we have achieved credibility in these six months and that is positive,” he told Football Italia.

“We mustn’t lose sight of reality.”

Conte explained: “The director was very clear, new players can only arrive when others are sold, so this is a perfectly balanced transfer session.”

“Some of these players haven’t been active for a while, so we must give them time to get into shape.”

“You in the media seem to act as if we just signed half of Real Madrid, but that’s not the right message,” he added.

“It’s an emergency situation tomorrow because Antonio Candreva is suspended, so it’s possible Young will start.”
