Inter CEO Beppe Marotta is pleased with the job that Simone Inzaghi is doing as head coach at the club.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset in an interview aired earlier this afternoon, the CEO praised the former Lazio coach for both his skill on the touchline as well as his personality and how he’s fit in at the club.
The appointment of Inzaghi was arguably the biggest decision that Marotta and his fellow directors at Inter had to make during the summer.
Antonio Conte’s abrupt departure at the beginning of summer meant that the Nerazzurri were without the coach who had guided them to their first Scudetto in eleven years and built up a formidable team in the process.
However, the club wasted little time in pursuing Inzaghi as a successor, settling on him quickly and then swiftly moving to convince the 45-year-old to make the switch before he agreed a new deal with the Biancocelesti.
So far this season the progress made under Inzaghi has been evident on the pitch, and as Marotta explained that club are happy with him and the atmosphere is positive.
“The previous coach had been tracing a path which Inzaghi inherited, and added his own ideas in a way that is incredible and sometimes surprising,” he explained.
“We are very satisfied with him as a person and a coach,” he continued, “and he is satisfied to be at Inter, and that’s what matters.”
