(Reuters) - Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte is committed to a three-year project with the club, he said on Monday, two days after his highly critical and typically outspoken outburst raised questions over his future with the Serie A outfit.

Antonio Conte was asked about Lionel Messi following Inter's 3-0 win over Genoa on Saturday.Messi's future has dominated headlines in 2019-20 amid speculation the six-time Ballon d'Or winner is ready to quit Barca at the conclusion of his contract next year.
He said the club had failed to back him and his players in the face of heavy criticism and that his efforts had not been recognised.
However, on Monday, he appeared to soften his stance, telling the ANSA news agency: "I am committed to a three-year project with Inter and, as I always have done in my life, I will work hard and fight with all my strength and everything in my power to make it a winning project."
Inter's season is still not over as they are involved in the Europa League and face Spanish side Getafe in a single leg last 16 tie on Wednesday.
