Serie A side Inter Milan has confirmed that head coach Antonio Conte has left the club just days after winning the Serie A.
“FC Internazionale Milano can confirm that an agreement has been reached with Antonio Conte for the termination of his contract by mutual consent” read a statement by Inter.
“The Club would like to thank Antonio for the extraordinary work that he has done, culminating in Inter’s 19th top-flight title. Antonio Conte will forever remain a part of our Club’s history”.
After talks on Wednesday the former Chelsea manager and the club agreed to part ways, with the 51-year-old to receive a payout of €7m (£6m). He had one year remaining on a contract with a €13m salary.
Conte concluded his ambitions were at odds with Inter’s plans, with the club preparing to sell about €80m of players this summer because of the state of their finances. Conte wanted backing for signings and a greater chance to build on his success.
He felt Inter did not offer him this hence his decision to leave.
Where should Antonio Conte go next?
