Italian Media Highlight How Inter Coach Simone Inzaghi Was Close To Juventus

Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi had been close to a move to Juventus at one point before he became Nerazzurri manager in the end.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who highlight the fact that the former Lazio coach had been a target for the Bianconeri in the past, though the move never materialized.

Inzaghi has lost more matches to Juventus than he has won since he came to coach in Serie A as coach of Lazio’s first team, but he also got some key victories over the Turin side, both in the league and in the Supercoppa Italiana when he guided the Biancocelesti past Max Allegri’s side.

The 45-year-old’s reputation based on his work in the Italian capital, where he had won the Coppa Italia, two Supercoppa Italiana trophies, and qualified for the Champions League, had made him a target for the Biancocelesti, in particular in 2019 when they were looking to replace Allegri after his first spell in charge came to an end.

In the end they looked to other coaches, while Inzaghi remained at Lazio until he was convinced by Inter this summer, but there had certainly been an interest in him from Turin.
