Conte takes credit for leading the championship

The head coach of Inter Milan, Antonio Conte, takes credit for the team's leadership in Serie A after 24 played rounds.

Inter in the current season of the Italian championship are in the lead with a margin of four points from Milan. Also, Antonio Conte's team are ahead of Juventus Turin by 10 points, but the reigning champions have a game in reserve.

In general, the Snakes lost only two matches and drew five, and also amaze with their realization. Inter have 60 goals scored after 24 matches, and the closest pursuers Atalanta have a statistic of 55:31.

However, Antonio Conte slightly exaggerates the success of the team he coaches. This follows from his last interview after defeating Genoa in the last match,

“It was a game against a team that was in great shape, which recently gained only a point less than us. But we found the right approach and allowed Genoa little, just a few crosses.

Previously, the gap from Juventus was usually about 15 points, so if you objectively calculate how much Inter lagged behind the leaders before my arrival, it becomes clear that we have made a big step forward,” said Antonio Conte.

We would not argue with the words of the coach, if not for the terrible performance in European competitions. Inter finished last in the group with Shakhtar, Real Madrid and Borussia Monchengladbach. At the same time, the team relied on the Champions League, and not just served a number in order to get prize money. This was noticeable both in the squad and in the coach's nervousness with the players during the games.

The fact that Inter are no longer falling behind Juventus by 15 points, but overtaking by 10 is also not entirely Conte's merit. There is a contradiction in this, since Juventus has changed three coaches over the past two years and Old Signora has clearly regressed. Sarri did not give the team anything qualitatively new, and Andrea Pirlo is still inexperienced to squeeze the maximum out of this composition. Therefore, we do not have the most enviable results of Juventus in the championship and the exponential dominance of Inter against the background of competitors.
