Inter Milan manager Simone Inzaghi pens extension until 2025

Inter Milan manager Simone Inzaghi has penned a new deal to remain at the San Siro until 2025, as confirmed by the club.

An agreement had been in place between both parties for a long time, and it has now been made official.

Inzaghi’s previous deal was due to expire in 2024, and he has extended his stay for another year.

The former Lazio manager’s position was under scrutiny midway through the 2022/23 campaign due to a string of poor performances before they experienced a stellar upturn in form.

Inter finished second in Serie A, clinched the Coppa Italia trophy, and reached the final of the Champions League before losing to Manchester City by a slim margin.

They drew praise for their performance, as did Inzaghi, whose tactics nearly nullified Pep Guardiola’s gameplan.

Inzaghi will see a pay rise in his new deal as the Italian manager is set to pocket around €5.5 million a season plus bonuses.

The Nerazzurri have picked up from where they left last season, winning three out of three games with aplomb. They look genuine title contenders this season.

Inzaghi will be again leading his side in the Champions League this season, with Inter pitted against Real Sociedad, Benfica and RB Salzburg in Group D.

Lautaro Martinez, Inter’s top-scorer last season, has continued his rich vein of form with five goals this season.

El Toro also tops the Serie A scorers list, one goal above Olivier Giroud.

Inter’s summer signing Marcus Thuram is off to a great start, netting a goal and two assists as well as forging a great partnership with Martinez in attack.
