Inter's squad needs were not so dire.
Also rebuilding in Serie A is harder than in PL. In Serie A you can get away with cheap signings such as Ashley Young as a LWB. In PL, you need top quality.
He won the League with Moses and the baby-killer as full backs. Against Guardiola, Mourinho, Poch and Klopp. Beat Spain at Euro 2016 with one of the worst Italy sides EVER. Give the man some respect.
 
To those of you dreaming about someone coming into our dressing room and giving our players a no-nonsense kick up the backside and letting them know that the way they're playing is a disgrace, this is your man.
But what if the players decide they don't want Conte's tantrums and just give up like they did under Jose. Players have all the power

Conte is proven now, unlike Mourinho who was in the past. He's also going to be in an expensive contract. If Levy would have to choose, he'd choose Conte instead of the players (Dele, Winks, Ndombele, Dier and co. come to mind). Son, PEH, Hugo etc are way too professional.

What Conte has above all else is a proven ability to instill a unified, hardworking, intense, winning culture among spoiled, entitled modern footballers.

Talk about the money and the resources and the level of competition all you want, but Juve, Italy, Chelsea, and Inter were all various shades of shitshow when he got there, and the culture changed immediately at all of them.

Conte also won automatic promotion from the Serie B in his first full season twice in his earlier career. He is a serial dressing room fixer.

He's the man for the job. The job is extremely difficult and it may not work, but there isn't a better option we could possibly find than Conte.

More to do with him being an excellent manager and tactician. He brought in players that suit his system and have the right mentality.

Jose was on an expensive contract, that didn't stop Levy blocking him from getting rid of Dele, Ndombele and Winks which Jose wanted to do. Jose's tactics were in the past, but his success was quite recent, he won a PL only 6 years ago, Conte won it only two years later.

How many chairmen sack a manager 6 days before a cup final?
