Simone Inzaghi joins Inter Milan from Lazio on a two-year deal. the 45-year-old
replaces Antonio Conte, who left the San Siro Stadium just weeks after leading Inter
to their first league title in 11 years; Inzaghi handed a boost after Romelu Lukaku
revealed he wants to stay at Inter amid Chelsea interest
Simone Inzaghi began his coaching career with Lazio managing their various youth
teams before being promoted to the first team in April 2016 when replacing Stefano Pioli
who was sacked mid-season
Inzaghi led Lazio to five straight finishes in the top seven in Serie A, which saw them
played in a European cup competition every season he’s been in charge, including the
Champions League this past season
despite Inter’s desire to raise funds this summer, Lukaku told Belgian broadcaster
VTN on Wednesday: “Yes, I am staying.
“I’ve already had contact with the man who normally becomes our new manager
[Inzaghi]. Maybe I shouldn’t say that yet… but it was a very positive conversation.
“There’s also the challenge of doing it again [winning the league with Inter].
I feel good at Inter.” Inzaghi’s predecessor Conte left Inter just weeks after securing
their first Serie A title in 11 years, amid a disagreement with the board over their plans
to cut costs.
Conte is now in talks with Tottenham about replacing Jose Mourinho as manager,
although it is understood the two parties are yet to reach an agreement over the former
Chelsea boss’ wage demands.
