One day after Antonio Conte’s sudden departure, Inter Milan has already made some substitute. Simone Inzaghi will be Romelu Lukaku’s new coach, according to various Italian media.
The former Lazio striker has led Roma in recent years, as Pepo Inzaghi’s brother won one Italian Cup (2019) and two Super Cups (2018, 2020). Whereas, Inzaghi Jordan Lukaku was under his leadership for four years.
Now the 45-year-old Inzaghi can start coaching Romelu Lukaku at Inter, who this season again played Serie A champions for the first time since 2010. The good news for Lukaku: Inzaghi is a coach similar to Conte. That is to say: pure passion, driver and fans of 3-5-2, the system in which “Big Rom” has shined in the past two seasons.
Lukaku transformed into a true striker under Conte. Last season, this resulted in them finishing second in the Italian League and the Europa League final. This year was a huge success, receiving its first Scudetto in more than ten years. Lukaku was the deciding link for Conte, scoring 24 goals and making 10 assists, so the Red Devil said goodbye with great regret.
“We spoke for the first time in 2014 and have had a close relationship since then,” Big Room said at Conte’s farewell. We could have worked together many times, but God only knows why this hadn’t happened before. You came at the best of times and fundamentally changed me as a player. He became stronger mentally. And most importantly, we won together. That’s all that matters to you and I’m glad I was a coach. I will take your principles with me for the rest of my career. Such as physical and mental readiness and motivation to win. It was a great pleasure to play for you. Thanks for everything you’ve done. I owe you a lot. ‘
It is said that financial troubles in the Nerazzurri are the basis of the break. The Italian champion will basically have to raise money next summer and Conte will inevitably weaken his team in this matter.
“The club should collect close to 100 million,” he writes. Gazzetta dello Sport. “It’s hard to imagine it would succeed without selling at least one major player.”
Sky ItalyJournalist and transport guru Fabrizio Romano talks about € 80 million. Players like Lautaro Martinez, Ashraf Hakimi and thus Romelu Lukaku have been mentioned as forced potential players.
