Inter have no plans to sack Simone Inzaghi as coach before tomorrow evening’s Coppa Italia match against Juventus, and continue to back him.
This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews, who report that the 46-year-old continues to have the support of the Nerazzurri despite Saturday’s Serie A loss to Fiorentina, although further bad results could erode their trust in him.
Inter fell to their third consecutive defeat in Serie A, their fourth in five matches, and their tenth overall in the league this season, against Fiorentina over the weekend.
This has led to the rumours of an imminent sacking of current Inter coach Inzaghi growing louder than ever.
Reports have suggested that current Inter Primavera coach and former Nerazzurri, Roma, and Ajax defender Christian Chivu is lined up to replace the former Lazio boss on a caretaker basis in the event that the Nerazzurri decide to sack him before the season is over.
Moreover, there has also been significant speculation around Inzaghi’s future past the end of the season, if he is to make it that far.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that Inter have already made contact with former Spurs and Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino.
However, according to Sky, for the time being the club directors are not pushing Inzaghi towards the exit door.
Rather, the club want to keep giving the 46-year-old their full backing as the team head into a crucial and intense portion of their season, with eight matches still to be played in the month of April alone.
There is no chance that Inzaghi will be sacked before tomorrow evening’s match against Juventus.
However, should the results not pick up, they could feel that they have no choice but to act.
