​​Inter Milan’s sporting director Beppe Marotta has revealed that it was just a coincidence that former ​Juventus manager Antonio Conte was seen walking past the club’s headquarters on Thursday.

The Italian has been linked with the Inter job in recent times, with it being understood that the club want him to replace current manager Luciano Spalletti at the helm. 

However, Conte too was non-committal when asked by BeIN Sports as to why he was in the vicinity of Inter’s HQ in the city centre.

Marotta has confirmed that he did not meet Conte, nor is his presence got to do anything with the club.

“Milan’s a big city, in addition to being a beautiful one. I think it’s legitimate that a citizen like he can walk around the city centre. We’ve got Spalletti and he’s doing well and we’re third in Serie A, and still in the running in the Coppa Italia and Europa League. The club has the utmost faith in him,” Marotta said as ​quoted by ESPN.

Conte who is out of work since being sacked by Chelsea in the summer, has been linked to a number of jobs in the recent past, though he has confirmed that he is happy taking a break and was in Italy to see Atlanta’s 3-0 win over Juventus.
