Inter Milan coach Conte: I never sought to offend anyone

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte is confident in his job after reaching the Europa League final.

Inter enjoyed a 5-0 victory over semifinal opponents Shakhtar Donetsk last night.

Conte went into the tournament having questioned the support of the board, but now insists: "I don't feel like going back over certain situations. I felt some things at the time and felt the need to say it. What I say is always aimed at being constructive.

"The media likes to emphasise some situations more than others, but at the same time, I know we have to go through certain steps to become what Inter want to be in future.

“I am not a political person. I stick to facts and action, not being particularly diplomatic, but I try to be constructive and not to offend anyone."
