Antonio Conte casts doubt on Inter Milan future after Europa League final defeat

Antonio Conte has suggested that his time may be up at Inter Milan after just one year in charge.

The Italian spoke in the aftermath of his side's 3-2 defeat in the Europa League Final at the hands of Sevilla.

Romelu Lukaku's early strike was quickly cancelled out and he then deflected a shot into his own net to hand the Spanish side victory.

Conte has never been shy of speaking his mind and, despite leading Inter to second in the Serie A table and the competition final, admits he may not be in the dugout next term.

He said: "We're going to meet on next week with the club and we'll decide about my future.

"I'm not sure that I'll be the Inter manager on next season, we'll decide together. Inter will plan the future with or without me."

The 51-year-old called out the Inter board earlier this month and accused them of not giving him and his player sufficient support throughout the season.

"I don't think the work of the players has been recognised and I don't think my work has been recognised," he claimed.

"We all received very little protection from the club, absolutely zero."

"We have to grow and improve in all areas, including off the field, and a big club should protect its players more.

"We'll discuss it all at the end of the season — I have to meet the President [Steven Zhang] and he's in China right now.

"I don't like it when people jump on the bandwagon — they have to be there in the good times as well as the bad and here at Inter it wasn't like that, I'm sorry to say."

Conte's previous spells in charge of Chelsea and Juventus have ended on sour notes.
