Inter Milan duo settle differences with boxing match

Share

Inter Milan head coach Antonio Conte and striker Lautaro Martinez pulled no punches in a heated confrontation on Wednesday as the club beat AS Roma but the pair settled the score in a light-hearted boxing match at their training ground on Thursday.

A makeshift ring was built by players and staff members using cones and tape, with Conte and Martinez both wearing boxing gloves as they were introduced by Inter striker turned ring announcer Romelu Lukaku.

“Live from Madison Square Garden, It’s Lautaro Martinez!” said Lukaku as the players cheered for the Argentine striker in a video posted on the club’s Twitter account.

Lukaku’s introduction of Conte drew playful boos before the ring announcer yelled: ‘Let’s get ready to rumble!’

The video clip marked a harmonious ending to the touchline fall out between the pair on Wednesday when Conte substituted Martinez, who reacted angrily by kicking a water bottle and throwing his shirt to the ground.

The pair appeared to have made up as they were all smiles during the friendly bout, where they exchanged a few soft punches before posing for pictures.

Inter have already won the Serie A title, their first Scudetto for 11 years.
