Inter Milan Owners In Financial Trouble

Inter Milan Transfer Debt

Inter Milan’s owners Suning Group have halted operations at its Chinese football clubs due to financial jeopardy – in a bombshell move which plunges the future of the Serie A giants into uncertainty.

An announcement from the company last week announced that the Chinese Super League champions would no longer be in existence:

“Due to the overlapping of various uncontrollable elements, we have to announce with great regret that Jiangsu will cease operation of teams at all levels while continuing to seek, in a wider scope, interested parties for the future development of the club,” Suning announced on Weibo.

Alexis Sanchez publicly SLAMMED by Antonio Conte

Alexis Sanchez Inter MIlan

Antonio Conte has publicly called out under-performing striker Alexis Sanchez by insisting ‘his numbers must be better.’

Conte has drawn attention to Sanchez’s lack of goalscoring following Inter Milan’s Coppa Italian semi-final first leg defeat to bitter rivals Juventus.

The Italian boss cut a frustrated figure on the touchline as he was defeated by his former club, courtesy of a Cristiano Ronaldo brace.

Sanchez filled in for the absent talisman Romelu Lukaku, but failed to find the back of the net and give his side the added impetus it desperately needed.

Juventus Beat Inter 2-1 In First Leg Of Coppa Italia Semi-Final

Coppa Italia Trophy

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice to fire Juventus to a 2-1 comeback win over Inter Milan in a hard-fought Coppa Italia semi-final first-leg clash at San Siro on Tuesday.

Lautaro Martinez gave the home side an early lead but the Portuguese replied with a penalty before pouncing on a defensive mix-up to put the Turin club in front before halftime.

Inter, without suspended top scorer Romelu Lukaku, pushed for an equaliser but couldn’t find a way past 43-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. The Italian produced a superb save to deny Matteo Darmian on the 1,100th senior appearance of his career for club and country.

Christian Eriksen’s Free-Kick Sees Inter Win Milan Derby

MIlan Derby

Inter Milan are through to the Coppa Italia semi-finals thanks to a stunning injury-time free-kick by Christian Eriksen.

Eriksen stepped up in the 96th minute to curl home into the top corner to complete a comeback victory for Inter against their bitter rivals AC Milan in what was an ill-tempered affair that saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic sent off for AC Milan.

Ibra had put the Serie A leaders ahead in the first half but his dismissal after the break saw Inter pile on the pressure – and they equalzsed through a Romelu Lukaku penalty on 71 minutes before Eriksen’s stunner.

Inter Dominate Juventus In Derby D’Italia Win

Juventus v Inter

Inter dealt a blow to JuventusSerie A title defence and moved level on points with leaders Milan by securing a 2-0 victory at San Siro on Sunday.

Former Juve midfielder Arturo Vidal opened his Inter account with a 12th-minute header and Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku wasted chances to increase the Nerazzurri’s lead.

The Bianconeri were unable to make the most of those reprieves as an emphatic finish at the end of a route-one move saw Nicolo Barella double Inter’s advantage.
