Inter Milan's Italian head coach Antonio Conte reacts prior to the Italian Serie A football match Inter Milan vs Hellas Verona

Inter received a letter containing threats against head coach Antonio Conte and have informed the relevant authorities, the club confirmed in a widely distributed statement.

According to the Italian publication Corriere della Sera, the incident involving the former Chelsea manager has resulted in authorities launching an investigation in order to find the sender of the mail.

Serie A club Inter Milan later said in a statement to Italian news agency Ansa that "the letter arrived at the club and not personally to the coach".

Conte's wife Elisabetta Muscarello released a statement on her Instagram on Saturday morning insisting that the news that her husband had received the bullet was a hoax.

The Nerazzurri clarified the situation and rumours that Conte himself reported the letter, saying today that Conte "did not personally receive any threatening letter and, consequently, did not go in himself to file a complaint".

Conte joined Inter in the summer and the Italian outfit are now one point behind his former club Juventus at the top of Serie A.

The 50-year-old returned to Italian football after a short-yet-successful stint at Chelsea which saw him win both the English Premier League and FA Cup during his two-year tenure.
