The “spell” of Inter coach Simone Inzaghi appears to be wearing off as the coach starts to receive more criticism for some of his decisions and errors at the start of this season.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who note that the Nerazzurri coach no longer has the kind of positive aura around him that he did for much of last season, and that skepticism about him has become much more vocal.

Last season, Inzaghi was given some significant leeway given that he had a difficult task of replacing Antonio Conte after a summer transfer window of significant upheaval in the squad.

The former Lazio coach did well to win two trophies and guide the team to the knockout stages of the Champions League for the first time in eleven years, whilst their form in the league was impressive on the whole.

However, the Nerazzurri’s league campaign ended in disappointment as they were beaten to the Scudetto by city rivals AC Milan on the final day of the campaign, and according to Tuttosport, this could be where Inzaghi’s “spell was broken.”

The coach entered the current campaign with new expectations, and with the feeling that he would have to kick on and improve from last season’s very encouraging results, and instead the team seems to have regressed.

Now, the coach is running out of excuses and goodwill, with the team clearly shaped in his image and by his decision, and his player selections and tactical system are subject to more and more scrutiny when they fail to get results.
