Inter are off to a splendid start and took advantage of the first international break to announce the awaited renewal of Simone Inzaghi. The formalization comes a few weeks after an agreement was reached, Corriere dello Sport relays (via OneFootball).
The coach had just one year on his previous deal. However, his agent stated in early August that they had already concurred with the Nerazzurri, but they had to tend to the transfer market at the time.
Inzaghi technically entered his third Inter season as a lame duck, but the situation didn’t last long. The gaffer saw another year tacked on, pushing the expiry date to 2025. His wages have been touched up to €5.5M per year plus add-ons.
Despite the small delay relative to standard proceedings, the gaffer is widely esteemed inside the club. The talks went smoothly. He couldn’t win the Scudetto in his two years at the helm. On the other hand, he lifted the Coppa Italia and the Supercoppa Italiana twice and made it to the Champions League final in 2022/2023.
Our Take on Inter and Inzaghi
He might not be a tactical savant as other Serie A managers, but he’s perfectly fine, and taking home the title is the only thing missing from his resume. In addition, the fact that he’s not overly demanding on the transfer market surely works in his favor.
