Inter Coach Simone Inzaghi Up For Award At FIFA “The Best” Ceremony In London

2023 saw a lot of ups and downs for Inter.

But it was in the Champions League in particular that the Nerazzurri, and Inzaghi, really showcased their quality on the biggest stage.

Inter did not manage to get their hands on the trophy. They lost in the final to Manchester City by just one goal.

But Inter went toe-to-toe with the Cityzens.

The Nerazzurri’s performance drew major praise, including from City coach Pep Guardiola.

Meanwhile, at the start of this season, Inter have earned a spot at the top of the Serie A table.

The Nerazzurri, with Inzaghi at the helm, have scored the most goals in the Italian top flight so far, and conceded the fewest.

Inzaghi was named as one of the three contenders for the award of coach of the year along with Guardiola and Luciano Spalletti.

Spalletti guided Napoli to the Serie A title last season. Then he took over from Roberto Mancini with the Italian national team.
