- Antonio Conte was left furious after Inter Milan's dismal performance against Bologna
- The former Chelsea boss locked his players inside the dressing for an hour to show his disappointment
- Inter failed to close the gap on league leader Juventus and Lazio on the Serie A table
Antonio Conte got so angry that he locked hiss players inside the dressing room for an hour after Inter Milan's disappointing 2-1 loss to Bologna at the San Siro.
The Nerazzurri's were gradually getting their title ambitions back on track after second-place Lazio lost to their city AC Milan neighbors by 2-0.
And Inter had the chance to close the gap on Lazio with a point and eight behind league leaders Juventus.
But despite taking the lead through Romelu Lukaku in the 22nd minute, Bologna bounced back in the second half despite playing with one -man down to record a 2-1 win.
Musa Juwara drew the visitors level in the 77th minute before Musa Barrow scored the winner ten minutes from time.
And Conte was not happy with the outcome of the result and was left fuming after the painful defeat on their home ground.
"The disappointment is enormous, at least as far as I'm concerned.
"I hope this disappointment that I feel is also felt by the players for at least one per cent.
"I am angry at myself because I'm the manager. I have my responsibilities; I am the one who directs the situation and it is right that I am very angry first of all with myself. Then I think that the players must also be with themselves."
"Situations are evaluated only by facing them. For me this is the first year of working with Inter and I have taken a situation with many situations to improve.
"At the same time, I also say that it is right to challenge everyone, me first."
He then hinted that his players were now playing for their futures after the disappointing defeat.
"I was brought here for a winning project and to bring Inter back to winning things," he added. "Clearly, the victory does not come overnight, but many situations leave a lot of bitterness.
"You think you are at a level and instead you are at a much lower level.
"From here to the end we will all have to prove that we deserve Inter. Otherwise it is right to make other decisions too."
