Inter President and Coach Add to Their Trophy Cabinet

Inter won their ninth Coppa Italia against Fiorentina, allowing Steven Zhang and coach Simone Inzaghi to boost their personal resume. The Nerazzurri are now tied with Roma in second place all-time as far as the domestic cup is concerned. Juventus are in the lead with 14 victories, SportMediaset informs.

The Chinese entrepreneur has become the third most successful president in the club’s history. He has taken home five trophies. He’ll hunt his first continental one on June 10th. He’s level with Giancinto Facchetti now. Massimo Moratti (11) and his father Angelo (7) top the leaderboard.

Inzaghi is a notch below Zhang among Inter coaches following his fourth cup win. He ranks behind José Mourinho, Roberto Mancini (7), and Helenio Herrera (7). He won’t be able to complete the treble featuring the Scudetto, but he will catch up with the Special One if they beat Manchester City in the Champions League. The tactician has prevailed in seven finals in a row.

Per Sky, the manager also advanced in the rankings related to the Coppa Italia alone, which he has lifted three times since he had done it once with Lazio before moving to Milan. He’s on par with legends of the caliber of Nereo Rocco, Nils Lieldholm, and Eugenio Bersellino.

Three gaffers share the first position with four triumphs: Sven-Goran Eriksson, Roberto Mancini, and Massimiliano Allegri. The Juventus boss is the only one that managed to do it consecutively and with the same team. Both Inzaghi and Zhang confirmed that their working relationship will continue before and after the final.
