Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte rants about Alexis Sanchez's fitness

Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte went on an epic rant about Alexis Sanchez's fitness when asked about his failure to feature against Atalanta.

Sanchez has had a disastrous spell at Inter Milan since joining on a season-long loan from Manchester United, starting just a single game.

Inter, however, have coped well in his absence and sit second on the Serie A standings, two points behind Juventus who beat AS Roma on Sunday.

Speaking in a press conference after the 1-1 draw against Atalanta, Conte was asked why he failed to play Sanchez, "You mention Sanchez – well gentlemen, players must be fit to play.

"I am not crazy. So, either I am a moron, or I want to hurt myself. I believe one plus one equals two. If you make one plus one equal five…

"If I put someone out of our line-up it is for a reason. It is not about performing a hara-kiri or because I am a mad man."

Sanchez was an unused substitute in the draw with Atalanta, as he was in the previous match as Inter won at Napoli.
