When Inter travel to Rome to face Lazio this evening, Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi will come face to face with a team with whom he enjoyed an association of more than two decades.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who highlight the 45-year-old’s long record of success with the Biancocelesti on the occasion of his first match against the capital club after taking over at Inter in the summer.

Inzaghi joined Lazio in the summer of 1999 as a replacement for Christian Vieri who joined Inter, having scored his first Serie A goal against the Biancocelesti the previous season, for Piacenza.

This began a long association with the club where, as a player, he won the Scudetto, three Coppa Italia and two Supercoppa Italiana titles, and a UEFA Super Cup in over two hundred appearances.

Inzaghi’s time with Lazio did not end when he hung up his boots, however, as he took on a role coaching the club’s youth teams from which he was promoted to first team coach, sitting on the bench for over fives seasons.

The 45-year-old guided the Biancocelesti to an era of success, including winning the Coppa Italia and then winning the Supercoppa Italiana twice, as well as achieving qualification for the Champions League.

The Italian tactician’s reign at Lazio impressed Inter sufficiently that he was chosen as the successor to Antonio Conte, and now he will be at the Stadio Olimpico with Lazio as a rival for the first time in over twenty years, and he will hope that he can enjoy the same kind of success against his former club as he so often did with them.
