Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi feels that the Nerazzurri has become a home for him, and he is proud to be at what he considers to be a top club.
Speaking in the matchday program ahead of his team’s Serie A clash with Empoli this evening, via FCInterNews, the 46-year-old noted that he has now won three trophies already at Inter, and that he hopes to win more.
Inzaghi joined Inter in the summer of 2021 from Lazio, and got right to work building the team in his own image.
Whilst the former Biancocelesti coach was disappointed to miss out on the Serie A title narrowly in his first season at the helm, he did manage to guide the team to both the Coppa Italia and the Supercoppa Italiana for the first time in over a decade.
Inzaghi reflected on how he’s gotten here, stating that “Piacenza, Rome and Milan are the three most important cities in my life.”
“Piacenza is the place where I come from,” he continued, “where I was born and raised, where I came up through the youth system and made my debut in Serie A.”
Inzaghi then noted that “In Rome, at Lazio, I won my first trophies as a player and coach, it’s a city that has a place in my personal as well as professional history.”
“Here in Milan, I joined a top club at Inter, and it’s here that together with my staff, the team, the fans, and the club I was able to win two trophies in my first season in charge, and now we’ve started off 2023 by winning the Supercoppa,” he noted.
Regarding his favourite match since he’s been in charge as Inter coach, Inzaghi said that “We’ve played many brilliant and exciting matches, but up to this point the one that’s stuck with me most has been my first, against Genoa at the San Siro.”
“It was my first league match, I had been at Lazio for five years and all of this was new to me.”
Inzaghi added that “The welcome the fans gave me was tremendous, and it gave me strength to face the season.”
