Real Madrid fitness coach to leave for Inter after Zidane fallout

Real Madrid‘s first-team fitness coach Antonio Pintus will join up with Antonio Conte at Inter in the coming hours.

Having spent the last three years at Los Blancos, the Italian was brought back into the first-team staff by Santiago Solari after being left out under Julen Lopetegui.

Pintus’ return to the backroom team saw the fitness levels of the squad increase, although footballing results weren’t easy to come by under Solari or Zinedine Zidane.

The relationship between Zidane and Pintus deteriorated when the fitness coach decided to stay in his role when the Frenchman resigned last year.

Zidane brought Pintus to the club in 2016 and the current head coach didn’t like the fact that he hadn’t left with him.
