Inter Milan and Simone Inzaghi have opted to renew their collaboration until 2025. So what are the reasons behind the club’s decision?

The 47-year-old manager joined the Nerazzurri in 2021 following the departure of Antonio Conte.

Despite failing to replicate his predecessor’s Scudetto achievement, Inzaghi has cemented his reputation as a cup expert.

The former Lazio boss won two Coppa Italia trophies and two Italian Super Cups in his first two campaigns at Appiano Gentile.

He also led the club towards the Champions League final last season before succumbing to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, the main objective remains to earn the second golden star.

Inter currently have 19 Scudetto titles in their trophy cabinet. Therefore, they still require one more league title to unlock the second golden star and place it above the club’s crest.

But while the Scudetto title is the primary objective for next season, the source explains how Inzaghi’s renewal complies with Giuseppe Marotta’s philosophy.

The report reveals how the Inter CEO never starts a campaign with a head coach who has an expiring contract.

Therefore, the former Sampdoria and Juventus director would feel more at ease after pushing Inzaghi’s contract deadline for another year.

The source also explains how the memorable Champions League campaign made up for the 12 defeats suffered in Serie A last season.

The pink newspaper views the imminent renewal as a message that symbolizes the club’s faith in Inzaghi. The former Lazio striker should also wield more power at the club.
