Inzaghi Gets on the Podium of Highest-Paid Coaches

Simone Inzaghi officially put pen to paper on his new Inter contract on Tuesday. On top of getting a year added to his previous one, he enjoyed a sizeable pay bump as a reward for his success so far. Despite missing out on the Scudetto, he has lifted four trophies and reached the Champions League final in two years in Milan.

Per Corriere dello Sport, he’s now the third highest-paid coach in Serie A. He makes €5.5M per season. José Mourinho and Massimiliano Allegri are tied at the top with a €7M salary each.

Inzaghi was on par with Milan gaffer Stefano Pioli at €4M per annum before re-upping with Inter. Napoli’s Rudi Garcia, Atalanta’s Gian Piero Gasperini, and Lazio’s Maurizio Sarri are in the next salary bracket. They all cash in €3M. The Frenchman inherited the same wages as Luciano Spalletti.

Conversely, the managers with the lowest wages (€500k) are Lecce’s Roberto D’Aversa and Genoa’s Alberto Gilardino. Empoli’s Paolo Zanetti (€600k), Frosinone’s Eusebio Di Francesco (€750k), and Udinese’s Andrea Sottil (€750) rank right above them.

Simone Inzaghi has managed 112 matches since Inter poached him from Lazio two summers ago. He has collected 72 wins, 18 draws, and 22 losses. He finished second right behind Milan in 2021/2022 and third in the past campaign, which Napoli dominated.
