Ex-Inter goalkeeper Walter Zenga has once again been discussing his desire to one day be named the head coach at Inter, according to a report in the Italian media.

Speaking during an interview with Sportweek, a magazine published by La Gazzetta dello Sport, about his new book, Walter Zenga explained how the managerial job at Inter is the one he has wanted ever since he entered the coaching arena.

“When I started, my path as a coach was aimed at striking the minds of those who make the decisions at Inter.”

He was keen to stress that just because he spent many years playing for the Nerazzurri, it does not mean he has a divine right to be handed the job whenever he wants it.

“I think that having the chance to coach the team that has been yours for a lifetime is not a right and I already feel lucky to have been able to do it in Sampdoria, where I had only played for two seasons.”

When Walter Zenga started his coaching career, that has taken him all over the world, he was aware that his overall aim was to get the job at Inter. Unfortunately for him, he has never been at the right level at the right time to get the job.

“Perhaps a couple of times this situation has also arisen, but evidently my qualities have not been enough at the time to make it happen.”

He is willing to wait for the Inter job though as he believes it is where he should end up.

“Of course I will wait for it. I was born there, I was there 22 years, it would be the closing of a circle, it would be going home.”

Walter Zenga also knows that the managerial job is the hardest to get, and perhaps he should have looked at being part of the backroom staff at the club as there are more positions available.

“I chose the most difficult job, because there is only one coach. Maybe in management there would be more room. But in my life I have always chosen the complicated path.”
