Simone Inzaghi appointed as new Inter coach


Italian champions Inter Milan have appointed Simone Inzaghi as their new head coach.

He joins Inter from Lazio on a two-year deal and replaces Antonio Conte, who left the San Siro just weeks after leading Inter to their first league title in 11 years.

The 45-year-old joins Inter after spending five years as Lazio boss. During his tenure as coach, he led Lazio into the Uefa Champions League group stage for the first time since the 2007/08 season. The former Lazio and Italy striker also led the club to a Coppa Italia title in 2019, as well as two Italian Super Cup successes.

Inzaghi was handed a boost before even being confirmed as Inter’s new mentor when striker Romelu Lukaku revealed that he is planning to stay at the club for next season.

In recent weeks, Lukaku has been linked with a move away from the newly crowned champions with his former club Chelsea hinted as the likeliest destination.
