Three days. That was all it took for Inter to go from the highest of highs to a deep, deep low. Antonio Conte is no longer Inter’s manager. It doesn’t feel real to type out that sentence with memories of the Nerazzurri’s Scudetto triumph so fresh in memory. I don’t think it really will set in until someone other than Conte is stalking the sidelines next season. Two seasons after he was first appointed, Inter has broken its decade-long trophy drought with a 19th Scudetto and made it to the Europa League final, making countless memories along the way. And now it’s all over.
“FC Internazionale Milano announces that it has reached an agreement for the consensual termination of the contract with the coach Antonio Conte.
“The whole club would like to thank Antonio for the extraordinary work he has done, which culminated in winning the 19th Scudetto. Antonio Conte will remain forever in the history of our club.”
It felt as though we were just getting a new dynasty started a mere week ago. Now, though, Inter is starting over once again. If the past three days aren’t an embodiment of Pazza Inter I don’t know what is. A summer of turmoil and sales is on the horizon. Simone Inzaghi is touted as Conte’s replacement with his contract at Lazio expiring at the end of the season.
We’ll have more on what the future holds when we can think straight again.
Like always, Forza Inter
