Conte: Inter has high expectations but not everything I touch turns to gold immediately

Antonio Conte claims after the 2-0 win over Napoli, that Atalanta pressure can be good practice for Inter in the future, and said, ‘I realize I bring high expectations but not everything I touch turns to gold immediately.’

The Nerazzurri have consolidated second place ahead of this weekend’s final showdown with Atalanta and have maintained their third consecutive clean sheet.

Although Napoli remained in possession at San Siro for long periods, Danilo D’Ambrosio and Lautaro Martinez got the goals in each half.

“We have faced a strong team, a side that, as I said earlier, has been the only ones to trouble Juventus in recent years and is full of excellent players,” Conte told Sky Sport Italia.

“Inter, therefore, deserves credit for the excellent performance and it wasn’t easy after Atalanta won at Parma, because we were forced to win our game in a certain sense.”

“These are important situations because we need to get used to feeling the pressure of teams pushing up behind us, even if it’s for second place and someone else won the Scudetto.”

“As a solid team, we have faced this match and I’m really happy for the lads.”

This result means that even a point in Bergamo will suffice to ensure that they hold second place.

“The line-up selection against Genoa and today was done with some calculations to ensure we would have an extra rest day for some players. Then we have four more days and the Europa League.”

“Atalanta has done great work with Gian Piero Gasperini over the last few years, growing season by season, bringing in suitable players to the project who can change the game at any moment, in Serie A or Champions League.”

“It’s going to be a good test for us to see where we are right now and I think it’s a great match to finish the Serie A season on.”

Conte pointed out that Inter hasn’t won for a decade, after complaining that second place was nothing to celebrate.

“The problem is I can not be the one who describes Inter’s history. That’s what your journalists and pundits are for, seeing the figures and explaining the work you’ve done.”

“I also realize that my presence creates high expectations and the way some results are viewed can be affected. The moment I arrive, people might think what I touch turns to gold. It has happened in the past, but that does not always mean it will.”

“When I speak and at times that can irritate people, I think I am very honest. I understand that attacking me brings notoriety to some who seek the spotlight and I hear stuff that offends my professionalism about my work being said. I can make mistakes, but I’ll always be passionate and try to speed up the situations I’m being called into.”

“When people lie or try to frame things in some way, that is harmful to everyone.”

To end on a lighter note, Conte was shown the image of Lionel Messi lit up on the Duomo Cathedral in Milan, which Chinese television used to advertise the Inter-Napoli game tonight.

Would he rather have just € 50 m worth of Messi or four players?

“I think those two scenarios are pretty unlikely! I hold my players on tight, as they give their all, I can guarantee that. Moving the Duomo would be easier than bringing Messi to Inter.”
