Former Lazio midfielder Marco Parolo believes that Simone Inzaghi can take Inter Milan to even greater heights next season.

Parolo suggested that the 48-year-old has just “begun a cycle” at the Nerazzurri while speaking on Italian broadcaster DAZN, via FCInterNews.

Inzaghi is now in his third season as Inter coach. And it has been the most accomplished one yet from the former Lazio boss.

Inzaghi’s first season at Inter had many high points. But it was still a season of transition after the team had won the Serie A title under Antonio Conte.

And there was perhaps a soft underbelly that saw Inter conceded the title to their city rivals AC Milan in the run-in.

Then last season, the inconsistency in the league was even worse. But the Nerazzurri had a roaring end to the campaign, which saw them reach the Champions League final.

And this time around, Inter have put it all together.

Whilst the Nerazzurri existed the Champions League in rather disappointing fashion, in the league they have been close to faultless.

Marco Parolo: Inzaghi Can Raise The Bar Even Further At Inter

Inzaghi seemed to take all the momentum from last season’s Champions League final run and consolidate it for this campaign.

Moreover, the coach has put his imprint on the team tactically more than ever.

The Nerazzurri play a style that is unique and reflects the way their coach wants them to play perfectly.

Additionally, there is the fact that this Inter squad is more Inzaghi’s than ever. The Nerazzurri have signed players for the 48-year-old in several transfer windows.

Now the question will be whether Inter and Inzaghi can stay on this trajectory past the end of the current season.

In the view of former midfielder Parolo – who spent several seasons playing under Inzaghi at Lazio – they will be able to. This could just be the beginning.

“I think that Inzaghi has begun a cycle,” Parolo said.

“I believe he’ll stay for next season. And that he can raise the bar at Inter even more,” the former midfielder anticipated.

Parolo commented that “Inter has a certain appeal for players.”

“Pavard showed that was the case, he liked the football they played and chose to come to Inter to play precisely the position that the coach has used him in.”

“This appeal to players, as we’ve seen in recent years, has to be something that the club takes advantage of to strengthen the squad,” Parolo argued.
