Simone Inzaghi is beaming after an “unforgettable evening” as Inter Milan wrapped up the Serie A title with a win over AC Milan in the derby.

The Nerazzurri coach couldn’t contain his joy in a press conference after the match, as reported by FCInterNews.

The biggest moment for Inzaghi as Inter coach has finally arrived.

The 48-year-old has already won several trophies with the Nerazzurri. There have been two Coppa Italia titles, and the Supercoppa Italiana on three occasions.

And Inzaghi also guided Inter to the Champions League final last season.

But this is something altogether different.

This is the title that Inzaghi and Inter have had their eye on since he arrived in the summer of 2021 from Lazio.

In Inzaghi’s first season at the helm, Inter came agonizingly close. They lost out to city rivals AC Milan on the final day of the season.

And then last campaign, Inter were miles behind Napoli, as their league form was downright woeful at times.

This time around, however, Inzaghi appears to have found the right balance.

Inter have been close to perfect in Serie A. And the coach has been rewarded with his first ever league title on the bench.

Inzaghi Beaming After Inter Clinch Serie A Title Vs AC Milan: “Unforgettable Evening”

“This is a wonderful, unforgettable evening,” Inzaghi said during the celebrations.

“It’s something to be shared with everyone in the world of Inter, from the club directors to our President.”

“I heard from him,” Inzaghi said of Nerazzurri President Steven Zhang. “He’s happy.”

“And then a thought for the fans. For my family. My parents, my wife, and my children.”

“These three years have been intense ones, and one of my flaws is that I have trouble keeping work outside the home,” the Inter coach thanked his family for their patience.

“And then a big thought has to go out to all my coaching staff,” Inzaghi added.

“They give me a lot of help.”

“I share this great achievement with them,” the coach said of his loyal staff.

As far as what makes him most proud, Inzaghi said, “These supporters. The passion of the fans.”

“Looking back, I see the six trophies we’ve won. A Champions League final.”

“It would have been hard to imagine all of this,” the coach admitted.

“I’ve had players who have given me everything. It’s right to share this with everyone.”

“Everyone contributed to this accomplishment,” Inzaghi said.

“We knew the math, and we clinched the title against Milan – that’s something that will always endure.”

“I wanted to do justice to Milan,” Inzaghi said of clinching the title in the derby.

“It wasn’t an easy match for them, including on a psychological level.”

“They have always been very worthy opponents,” Inzaghi said of the Rossoneri. “That’s been the case in the last three years, and it will be in the future as well.”

What Clinching The Title In The Derby Means For Inzaghi

Inzaghi admitted that clinching the title against Milan “Meant a lot to us. We wanted to win it tonight.”

“I had a good feeling about it this morning. Because it was raining, but even with the heavy rain, the guys took to the pitch in training to work on some of the final details that were important this evening.”

“For example the positioning on the first goal.”

“We played an intelligent match,” Inzaghi said. “And we could have had a lead of several goals at the end of the first half.”

Meanwhile, of being put in the same discussion as former Inter coaches like Helenio Herrera, Giovanni Trappatoni, and Jose Mourinho, Inzaghi says “Of course that’s a great feeling.”

“We need to analyze the last three years. The title win, and the Supercoppa were very good – but look at the way we played against Real Madrid in our first match in the Champions League.”

“The players have done well to understand the principles of play of their coach,” Inzaghi thanked all of his players.

“This evening will always live on.”

“Maybe I don’t even realize how big it is yet,” the coach concluded. “Unlike some of the guys – I still have to really let it sink in.”
