Antonio Conte exit: Inter Milan fans protest, tell club president to ‘take responsibility or leave our city’

Inter ultras urge President Steven Zhang to ‘take responsibility or leave our city’ over Antonio Conte’s exit.

The Scudetto celebrations have already been forgotten, as the focus turns to next season and the scaling down of their ambitions.

Conte walked away from the club after being told the club needed to raise €100m from player sales as well as cut wages by 20 per cent.

Curva Nord ultras hung up two large banners outside the Inter headquarters.

‘Zhang, take responsibility or leave our city’ was one, while the other read ‘Scaling down champions is for idiots. Coach, staff and players are untouchable!’

According to, a delegation representing the Curva Nord ultras was then accompanied into the building by a chief of security for a meeting with club directors.

Following that encounter, ultras leader Franco Caravita spoke to the same site.

“What had been said was that they’d do everything to keep the coach and the most important players. This downscaling might be down to the lack of funds, but with the Scudetto and Champions League qualification, we assumed those difficulties could be overcome.

“As the Curva, we ask for consistency in the project, and clearly without Conte, the consistency is lost.”
