During Inter’s Coppa Italia clash on Tuesday night, Antonio Conte showed Juventus president Andrea Agnelli his middle finger. After being beaten 2-1 in the first leg, Inter needed a win, but the second leg of their semi-final ended in a goalless Allianz Stadium draw.
As a row erupted between Conte and Agnelli, tensions boiled over after the full-time whistle, according to Sky Sport Italia. Subsequent TV footage has shown that at the half-time break, Conte aimed a middle-finger gesture towards Agnelli as he went towards the tunnel.
At the end of the game, Agnelli, meanwhile, was caught hurling insults towards Conte from the stands. On the tape, the director of Juventus was seen saying:’ F* off, shut up ahole.’
When asked about the after-game incident, Conte said, ‘They should say the facts, the fourth official saw what the whole game was about, they should be more respectful. ‘There is nothing to tell, but those who work require more sportsmanship and consideration.’
Conte said in his post-match press conference: “What happened at the end of the game?” I have neither the urge nor the joy to write on it.
‘I think that education must exist in all things. More.’ Enough,’
