Inter Milan wing-back Candreva: Conte even more intense

Inter Milan wing-back Antonio Candreva says coach Antonio Conte is more intense than ever.

The pair worked together with the national team.

“I already worked with Conte for two years when he was CT of the Nazionale, but I found him even more fired up and enthusiastic," Candreva told Sport Mediaset.

“His arrival is very positive for us. I have a strong working relationship with him and I know he can help this team and these players to improve."

Around 60,000 are expected at the Stadio Meazza for Monday night's Serie A opener against Lecce.

“The enthusiasm and affection of the Nerazzurri fans has always been immense, even during the most difficult moments.

“We are Inter, we are strong and we are here to have a season as protagonists."
