Coach Simone Inzaghi is aiming to emulate the longevity of Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp at Inter Milan.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper La Repubblica, via FCInterNews.
47-year-old former Lazio coach Inzaghi is currently in his third season in charge of Inter.
Inzaghi joined from the Biancocelesti in the summer of 2021. He replaced Antonio Conte on the Nerazzurri bench.
The fact that Inzaghi has already remained as long as he had is no mean feat.
In modern football, coaches frequently find themselves sacked after just a season or two in charge.
And there were numerous reports during the spring that Inzaghi’s days as Inter coach may be numbered.
This came amid a terrible run of form that saw the Nerazzurri take just one point from five consecutive Serie A matches.
Simone Inzaghi Wants To Become The “Klopp Of Inter”
But now, Inzaghi’s position at Inter virtually looks stronger than ever.
The 47-year-old has the Nerazzurri top of the Serie A table. With Inzaghi’s team having both scored the most goals in the league and conceded the fewest, that is certainly no coincidence.
There is a sense that this may finally be the season that Inzaghi gets his hands on the Serie A title.
And in the Champions League, things are going similarly well for Inter.
The Nerazzurri booked their place in the round of sixteen of the competition for the third season in a row under Inzaghi, and did so with a couple of matches to spare.
This evening, Inter have the chance to try and top their group by beating Real Sociedad.
And that comes, of course, after the Nerazzurri had reached the final of last season’s competition.
So there is a feeling that, if Inzaghi can keep working the way that he has been doing for some time now, then this may only be the beginning.
The former Lazio coach could well be looking to the reign of Klopp at Liverpool.
The German is nearing a decade in charge at Anfield.
That level of longevity is still obviously a long way away for Inzaghi.
But there is reason to believe that it wouldn’t be out of the question.
