Simone Inzaghi Inter Milan Future In Doubt: “Only A Miracle Can Save Him”
Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi is not likely to have a future as Inter coach beyond the end of the season given the constant and mounting disappointments for the team in Serie A.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that with the Nerazzurri’s tenth defeat of the league campaign, “only a miracle can save” the Nerazzurri coach from the exit door.
Inter lost their third consecutive Serie A match against Fiorentina, and their fourth out of their five most recent matches in the competition.
This means that the Nerazzurri’s place in the top four spots in the Serie A table is very much in doubt, and if Inzaghi were to fail to guide the team to this objective then there would be virtually no doubt about his future.
However, even if Inter are to scrape by into a place in the Champions League next season, there have been too many pointless setbacks throughout the team’s league campaign, and the club have grown tired of them.
Accordingly, the Gazzetta report that it is now likely that the Nerazzurri will pull the trigger and change coach in the summer, barring a virtually “miraculous” end to the campaign.
The team are still alive in the Champions League knockout rounds, which could well be the staging ground for a “miracle.”
However, barring what looks to be a highly improbable eventuality of actually winning Europe’s top club competition, it his tough to see merely making it further in the knockout rounds to be enough for Inzaghi given the Nerazzurri’s league form.
Winning the Coppa Italia again wouldn’t be enough, and as far as the league, even a very strong finish to the campaign (something which, right now, looks a million miles away anyway) would not erase the bare fact that the number of defeats that Inter have suffered in the league is now in the double digits.
