Banega’s pique with Conte: ‘Let’s see if that wig is real’

Éver Banega and Antonio Conte staged a scuffle during the Europa League final. The Argentine midfielder from Sevilla got stung by the Inter coach, getting in with his hair. Apparently, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the sevillista pulled his hair to guess whether it was a wig or not, something that angered the Italian.

“Let’s see if that wig is real,” Banega said, mocking Conte’s hair, supposedly achieved through a hair graft. The Argentine’s action shocked the transalpine coach, who replied: “I’ll wait for you outside.”

The referee did not want to review the action in the VAR, but he did end up admonishing Conte for his angry reaction.
