Simone Inzaghi is likely to stay on as Inter Milan coach over next season.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, as reported via Milan based Inter Milan news-site FCInterNews.
According to the report, this despite Simone Inzaghi’s future at Inter being subject of constant source of speculation throughout the season.
There have been numerous reports that the Nerazzurri are considering sacking their coach. These have typically followed rough patches in form, of which there have been a couple major ones.
However, there are no shortage in candidates to take his place should Inzgahi depart. Bologna’s Thiago Motta, a former Nerazzurri midfielder, is one of the major one.
Then, the links to Brighton and Hove Albion boss Roberto De Zerbi have been persistent for a couple months. Meanwhile, Inzaghi could potentially make the move to the Premier League if he were to part ways with Inter.
It was reported today that Tottenham Hotspur have made contact with the former Lazio coach’s agent. The Londoners see Inzaghi as a candidate to take over from Antonio Conte on a permanent basis next season.
However, the Gazzetta report that the most probable outcome now appears to be Inzaghi staying at Inter.
Upturn In Form Could Save Simone Inzaghi At Inter Milan
The rumours of a possible sacking of Inzaghi were the result of Inter having a major downturn in form last month.
The Nerazzurri had gone into full-blown crisis mode. Four losses and a draw in five league matches saw Inter tumble out of the top four of the Serie A table. Eleven defeats in the league so far this season is seen as not being up to par.
However, Inzaghi and his players have produced a response. A blazing return to form has seen Inter regain their place in the top four.
Meanwhile, the Nerazzurri will face Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia final later this month. And then there is the team’s heroics in the Champions League, where they could reach the final.
The brilliant form over the last few weeks mean that Inzaghi’s job at Inter now looks quite safe.
