Does anyone know what staff he’s bringing? I particularly interested in who is replacing Pintus. Lazio’s players never striked me as particularly fit.
Simone Inzaghi Bringing Seven Members Of Lazio Backroom Staff To Inter, Italian Media Report
Simone Inzaghi will bring seven members of his Lazio coaching staff to Inter, according to a report in the Italian media today.
Gazzetta dello Sport’s print edition said this was a group of coaches who had started with Lazio’s Primavera team and had gone all the way to the UEFA Champions League with the first team in the season just concluded.
Inzaghi’s assistant is Massimiliano Farris while his fitness coaches are Fabio Ripert and Alessandro Forte, the Milan-based paper explained.
Mario Cecchi and Riccardo Rocchini are technical colleagues, Ferruccio Cerasaro is his match analyst and Gianluca Zappala is Inzaghi’s goalkeeping coach, who will join forces at Inter with Adriano Bonaiuti.
Bonaiuti is one of two members of Antonio Conte’s staff who will stay on at Inter, along with the Nerazzurri’s chief nutritionist Matteo Pincella.
Inzaghi is due to become Inter’s new head coach on a two-year deal, although the club are unable to announce his appointment yet because he is under contract with Lazio on June 30 and left Claudio Lotito on bad terms.
Agreed, not looking forward to the upcoming season.I'm 100% pessimistic about this appointment. I'm predicting a total catastrophe. The guy was at Lazio for 21 years, he knew the environment, didn't have the pressure of a new club and a new environment, the people around knew him and trusted him.
All this and he was only mediocre at Lazio. He didn't overachieve in any sense of way. I expected at least Gasperini level of success. Even that mediocre level of his is down to being in a friendly environment with much less pressure. In a different environment he could be much worse.
He might end up being a good coach in a few years but he needs to gain much more experience under pressure before being hired by the first team in the league.
