Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi has come close to the records of Jose Mourinho, Roberto Mancini, and Antonio Conte with how the team have started the current season.
This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.
After fourteen matches, Inter have amassed 35 points in Serie A.
This is good enough to make the Nerazzurri top of the table.
Juventus are nipping at Inter’s heels with 33 points from the same amount of matches. But it is Inzaghi’s team who are leading the way.
And as the Gazzetta highlights, the current Inter coach does not just have Inter out in front of the rest of the Italian top flight in the current season.
The coach is also guiding the team to a start that’s highly impressive even in historical circumstances.
Inzaghi Close To Mourinho, Mancini & Conte Record With Start To Inter Season
In the 2006-07 season, Inter amassed 38 points in their first fourteen matches of the season.
Even compared to the current campaign’s flying start, that is on another level.
That season was stewarded by former Manchester City and Italy and current Saudi Arabian national team coach Roberto Mancini.
Meanwhile, Antonio Conte raced to 37 points in his first fourteen matches in charge of Inter in Serie A.
That is still better than Inzaghi has managed at Inter to date.
On the other hand, Inter did not win the Serie A title in Conte’s first season in charge. Rather, they went all the way in the league in the former Juventus and Chelsea boss’s second campaign, after a comparatively shakier start.
Meanwhile, there’s the 2009-10 season.
That was the season in which Inter won the iconic European Treble under Jose Mourinho.
And the Nerazzurri’s start to that campaign was actually identical to this one, at least in terms of total points.
Inter got 35 points from their first fourteen matches in Serie A in Mourinho’s second campaign at the helm.
