Former Inter President Massimo Moratti saw the similarities between coach Antonio Conte and former Nerazzurri tactician Jose Mourinho . Antonio Conte has just brought Inter Milan to the Serie A title in the Italian League for the 2020-2021 season. He managed to end the scudetto thirst for Inter, who previously won in 2009-2010 under the direction of coach Jose Mourinho. What Conte applied at Inter seemed to remind Moratti of Mourinho and other successful Nerazzurri coaches.
“Antonio Conte has achieved his target by protecting the team and building a player with character. He is extraordinary,” Moratti was quoted as saying by Football Italia . “I have to say this Inter team reminds me of Giovanni Trapattoni’s team. I see similarities with Jose Mourinho, and Helenio Herrera too. They are serious professionals with a winning mentality,” he said. Moratti also spoke about adding players if Inter could advance in European competition. He considered Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante to be a good choice for Inter.
“I think Kante has everything to give more strength to Inter. In the past, we signed Wesley Sneijder even though we already have a solid team, but we have become extraordinary with him,” said Moratti. “The same goes for Kante, but I say this as a fan, it will be difficult to sign him,” he said.
In addition, the figure who is now 75 years old also admitted that he was happy with the Inter title this year. “I am very happy, it is a special moment that I celebrate with my family,” he said. “I’m happy that Inter are winning titles again and I hope we can do more of the same in the future,” he said.
