Banega makes fun of Conte: is your hair a wig or real
Spanish club Sevilla was crowned European League champions for the sixth time in its history after defeating Italian rival Inter Milan 3-2,
in the match hosted by the Rhein Energy stadium in Cologne, Germany.
A state of tension prevailed throughout the events of the match,
specifically when the referee refused to award a penalty for Inter Milan after the ball touched the hand of Seville player Diego Carlos.
And according to the newspaper “La Gazzetta dello Sport”; Argentine Ever Banega, the player of the Andalusian team,
took advantage of these moments of tension and went to the bench of Inter Milan and approached Antonio Conte,
the coach of the Nerazzurri, and pulled him by his hair, saying to him: “Let’s see if your wig is real?”
Banega referred in his words to the Italian coach, who was known to have transplanted his hair before.
And it wasn’t just that; Conte even replied to the Argentine player and promised him: “We will meet outside later.”
The Andalusian team played a very big game,
especially its brilliant Moroccan goalkeeper Yacine Bono,
who featured distinctively in the semi-final and final matches.

The match began dramatically with the Belgian star Romelu Lukaku getting a penalty kick after he left the right,
taking advantage of his physical strength to put Brazilian defender Diego Carlos behind his back,
forcing the latter to block him in order to prevent him from being alone with goalkeeper Yasin Bono.
And Lukaku managed to score the penalty himself with a left-footed shot on a strong ground to the right of Bono that hit the net.
It didn’t take long for Seville to equalize via Luc de Jong with a superb header in the 12th minute from a cross by veteran and Andalusian captain Jesus Navas.
After the two goals, the two teams exchanged attacks, before de Jong managed to add a second goal to the Spanish team with a new header,
with which he received the cross of his Argentine teammate Ever Banega from a free kick,
and the Dutch deposited the net in the 33rd minute,
but the Italian team responded after only 3 minutes with a similar goal,
in the cross Marcelo Brozovic from a free kick received by Uruguayan head Diego Godin to deposit it against Bono,
to end the first half with a 2-2 draw between the two teams.
In the second half, Diego Carlos managed to take a double back kick, which collided with Lukaku’s foot on its way to goal.
Inter almost equaled afterwards through substitute Alexis Sanchez,
who took advantage of the darbaka inside the Seville penalty area to send the ball towards the goal,
but found French defender Jules Conde to take it out of the goal line to end the meeting with the victory of the Andalusian team 3.2,
and crowned the sixth title in the competition
