Inter have appointed former Lazio tactician Simone Inzaghi to replace Antonio Conte as the next Nerazzurri coach, the club have confirmed.

The Nerazzurri released a statement via the club’s official homepage confirming that the now former Biancocelesti coach has signed a two-year deal with the club, which expires at the end of June 2023.

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 was given the first team job at the Biancocelesti on a permanent basis after Marcelo Bielsa resigned less than a week after being appointed ahead of the following season.

Since then he has led Lazio to five straight finishes in the top seven in Serie A, which has meant that the Biancocelesti have played in a European cup competition every season he’s been in charge, including the Champions League this past season.

Inzaghi has also led Lazio to three titles during his stint with the club, winning the Coppa Italia in 2019 after defeating Atalanta in the final as well as two Supercoppa Italiana wins, both times over Juventus.
