Materazzi believes Conte's Juventus background will be a problem for Inter fans.
He said, "I hope the club can achieve all the results that the Interisti are dreaming of and I hope Conte can win over the hearts of the fans.
“It won't be easy, because you can't forget or cancel out the past, but he is hungry for success. With desire and effort, the Inter fans will grow to love him. It's up to him to win over everyone's trust."
The Treble winner also paid tribute to former AS Roma captain Daniele de Rossi.
“I hope the Inter fans forgive me, but I betrayed them last weekend to go and see his farewell match. He doesn't deserve all the dirt that has been thrown at him over the last few days.
“I know Daniele in good and bad, we won the World Cup together and we all helped him through that experience. I have such great respect for him that anything I can say becomes superfluous.
“I hope that he can do what he enjoys and one day return to Roma."
