On the verge of putting an end to a ten-year drought, the former Juventus manager is closer than ever to the Scudetto with a 1-0 victory over Verona on Sunday.
“Conte’s spirit is 360 degrees,” Bergomi toldSky Sport Italia
. “He exalts and gets the most out of all the players.
“The team spirit that comes out now is there for everyone to see, from how they hug and celebrate.
“Maybe it’s easier now, because they have the target right there, but it’s a job that starts from the beginning, over two years.
“Conte has had ups and downs, let’s not forget Inter struggled at certain times, but they always managed to get out of it.
“But Darmian and the other players who start from behind gave their contribution. You can see the strength of the group.
“It underlines Conte’s work that, knowing the environment at Inter, was very important.”
Inter sit 11 points above Atalanta at top of the Serie A table.
