Simone Inzaghi will have far less room for error at Inter than he had at Lazio, former teammate Luca Marchegiani has warned.

Inter confirmed yesterday that Inzaghi had become their new head coach on a two-year deal, replacing Antonio Conte after he left by mutual consent last week.

Inzaghi enjoyed great success during a five-year stint at Lazio, winning a Coppa Italia and two Supercoppa Italiana titles, but the pressure at Inter will be greater than he experienced in the capital.

“Inter isn’t a big exam for Inzaghi, because he already passed that exam at Lazio,” former Lazio goalkeeper Marchegiani told Tuttosport for Thursday’s print edition.

“Coaching Inter is a great opportunity for Inzaghi, despite the fact he was born and raised at Lazio where he was given the chance to make mistakes.

“Now he can’t do that anymore: he will be forgiven for much less at Inter and will need to make use of all the experience he’s gained.”

Inzaghi led Lazio to two fourth-place finishes in Serie A, one of which earned the Biancocelesti qualification for last season’s UEFA Champions League.

He will begin working at Inter in July when the Nerazzurri begin pre-season ahead of their Serie A title defence, which could prove difficult as Suning look to cut costs and offload the club’s highest earners.
