Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi’s position is not under threat despite the major disappointment of a derby loss to AC Milan over the weekend.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri directors have emphasized to the coach that they continue to have faith in him.
Inzaghi made no secret of his disappointment and frustration after the final whistle of Saturday’s 3-2 loss to the Rossoneri, the most painful defeat of the Nerazzurri’s season and perhaps the clearest illustration of the cracks which have been appearing since the preseason.
The start to the season has been far from perfect and has raised some doubts about Inzaghi’s suitability to lead the team into the future, and at the very least left him with a number of major outstanding issues to fix.
However, for the time being at least, the attitude of the directors has not changed towards the coach whose contract was extended in the summer in an important show of faith and trust.
The former Lazio coach is still the man who the club want on the bench to get the team back on track, and they’re not having any thoughts of looking for a new coach.
