Another season, another harsh dose of reality that Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte just does not like or appreciate Ivan Perišic.

Bayern Munich wanted to keep Perišic after the veteran winger helped the club secure a treble last season, but Inter Milan refused to lower its financial demands. This, of course, was extremely odd because there was virtually no chance that Conte was all of a sudden going to “like” Perišic and find a way to use him effectively after previously failing.
