Dortmund 3-2 Inter Milan: Antonio Conte rages at club bosses

Manager Antonio Conte is not on happy terms with Inter Milan directors and the coach has not hidden his feeling.

Inter blew a two-goal lead at half-time to bow 3-2 to Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

The fiery coach repeated his complaint that his squad is too thin and players too inexperienced to battle on two fronts and also suggested that club directors should face the television cameras as well as himself.

"Some important mistakes have been made at the planning stage, we can't play both the Champions League and Serie A with such a small squad," Conte was quoted by

"I'm tired of saying the same things over and over again, perhaps they could come here over and say something. I hope that this will help them understand a few things."

"They tell me that I should smile more on television," he added. "But I always end up saying the same things, about the growth process, about taking it step by step."

"The lads are giving everything and going at full pelt and I can't ask them for more than that," he said, before complaining about their lack of experience.

"We are talking about players who, apart from Diego Godin, have never won anything. Who do we turn to? Nicolo Barella who has come from Cagliari? Or (Stefano) Sensi, who came from Sassuolo?"

"We need to keep a low profile," added Conte. "Our position in Serie A should not allow us to forget our problems."

Conte made similar complaints when he was coach at Juventus, where he won three successive Serie A titles but struggled in the Champions League, famously saying that "you can't eat at a 100 euro restaurant with a 10 euro note."
