Inter Milan coach Conte booked after Banega 'wig' taunt

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte was booked after a verbal clash with Ever Banega during last night's Europa League final defeat to Sevilla.

Sky Italia says the pair were involved in a scuffle during the first-half of the Europa League final in Cologne, which the Spanish side won 3-2 thanks to a Romelu Lukaku own-goal.

Banega approached Conte and teased him saying: "Let's see if that wig is real."

The Italian manager responded: "I'll see you after the game," and referee Danny Makkelie booked Conte for that comment during the intense match.

Conte is understood to have gone under the knife for more than one hair transplant.
