Simone Inzaghi feels that with Inter Milan finally winning the title under him, he has silenced some of his critics.

The 48-year-old was in a confident mood speaking to DAZN, via FCInterNews, after the Nerazzurri clinched the Scudetto with a win over AC Milan.

Inzaghi has certainly not been without his doubters while he’s been Inter coach.

In his first season at the club, the former Lazio coach initially escaped too much harsh criticism, as he was still finding his feet at the club.

But the way that the Nerazzurri dropped off in the run-in of the campaign did lead to some doubts about whether Inzaghi was the right man to deliver the consistency needed for a league title.

And the downright woeful form that Inter showed at times last season certainly didn’t help.

The criticism reached a crescendo in the spring. It was always an erratic season for Inter in Serie A – but a shocking sequence of one draw and four losses from five matches was certainly a nadir.

There were a lot of rumours about Inzaghi’s future as a result.

But in the end, the coach remained. He ended the season with a flourish, steering Inter to a third place spot in Serie A after that bad run had left them outside the top four.

Last season Inter reached the Champions League final. And the Nerazzurri used that as a springboard this time around.

Inzaghi and Inter are now Serie A champions.

Inzaghi Silences Critics After Inter Serie A Title Triumph

“This has been an incredible journey,” Inzaghi said.

“I will always thank Lazio for giving me the opportunity as a coach.”

“We had some wonderful seasons, like the one where COVID hit, we could have fought for the title until the end.”

“Lazio wanted me to stay on,” Inzaghi continued.

“But there was something inside me that was telling me it was time for a change.”

“Many people told me not to go to Inter,” the coach revealed. “But there was something in me that told me that I had to come here.”

“It wasn’t just Inter. My decision was to work with Marotta.”

“I know Baccin, Ausilio, and Zanetti,” Inzaghi said. “And I knew that we could start a winning cycle despite some difficulties we encountered.”

“There have been some people who have chattered,” the Inter coach hit out.

“And maybe now, they don’t talk as much,” he continued.

“But I’m not trying to get anything off my chest. I just have to show off the trophies that I’ve won with my extraordinary players.”
