Inter boss Antonio Conte has bizarrely offered advice to his players when it comes to their performance in the bedroom, urging them to only have sex for short periods and use positions where they are “under their partners”.
The Nerazzurri are currently second in the Serie A table as they look to mount a serious title challenge and potentially usurp Juventus, who have won the last eight Scudetti in a row.
And Conte appears keen to ensure that every possible advantage is gained by his Inter side, including advice for players relating to sexual intercourse and making sure they are not overexerting themselves prior to matchdays.
He told L’Equipe: “I advise my players to have sex for short periods, with the minimum of effort and use positions where they are under their partners and preferably with their wives. Because then you don’t have to be exceptional.”
Conte also discussed his approach to management and how he is an advocate of having rules in place at a football club, even if some players don’t like adhering to them.
He added: “As soon as I get to work, I demand seriousness, then I set rules and limits to give direction. We are all very good when it comes to talking about rules, but how many have the strength and the desire to enforce them when the problems arrive?”
