Rome: Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte apologised on Saturday for “reacting badly to provocation” within the midweek Italian Cup match at Juventus.

Ex-Juve boss Conte appeared to indicate the finger to his former membership’s administrators at half-time, whereas footage from broadcaster RAI on the finish of the match confirmed the hosts’ chairman Andrea Agnelli apparently telling Conte to “shut up”.

“The reality, everybody has seen it,” stated Conte, who led Juve to a few Serie A titles, on the eve of Inter’s league match in opposition to Lazio.

“Gamers, coaches, presidents, we’ve to set an instance in schooling.

“I am sorry. I apologise. I reacted badly to a provocation. I might have reacted higher, with applause or a thumbs-up. I’ll keep in mind it.”

The photographs of Tuesday’s incident usually are not clear sufficient to indicate the precise nature of Conte’s half-time tirade nor exactly their goal, though they actually seemed to be within the path of the Juve contingent.

The identical is true of Agnelli’s utterances on the finish of the match as he left the stand.

Nevertheless, they’re the topic of an investigation by the Italian Federation.

Conte returns to the bench on Sunday for the Lazio match, having been banished to the stands for the 2 earlier video games and fined 20,000 euros ($24,000) for verbally threatening the referee after Inter had been held to a 0-0 draw by Udinese.

Inter are second in Serie A standings, two factors behind metropolis rivals AC Milan.
