Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte and his player settles disagreement with a boxing match in training

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte and striker Lautaro Martinez put an end to their disagreement by holding a friendly boxing match in training on Thursday.

Recalled tension grew after Antonio Conte subbed off Lautaro Martínez in the 77th minute against Roma in Wednesday’s 3-1 win.

The Argentine was furious with his coach decision to substitute him and kicked a bottle on his way out, causing Conte to berate him.

The scene made headline in Italian media, with reports claiming the duo might find it difficult to get along again.

However , Conte and Lautaro put the drama to bed by holding a friendly boxing bout in front of the first squad at the training ground on Thursday.

Top striker Romelu Lukaku served as the bout moderator and announcer with the rest of the squad watching in awe.

With the drama now sorted, Lautaro Martínez is expected to be back in the starting 11 for weekend's crunch battle against rivals Juventus.

Although, Inter have already won the title, a victory over their closest rivals at the Giuseppe Meaza stadium will give them another bragging rights.
