Welcome Simone! I wish you every success with my Inter! Make us proud!
When you think about it, this appointment is a massive step up for Simone Inzaghi. It is one thing to coach Lasio in Rome, but another altogether to coach Inter. As many posters on here have already said, every coach has to start somewhere. Most coaches do not simply walk into coaching a big club.
I think it takes alot of courage and character to coach Inter at the best of times. The expectations are often high and the pressure, dysfunction and turbulence surrounding the club can be an absolute distraction. I think the stakes are even higher because he has joined a season after we won the Scudetto. So compliments to him for taking a huge step and accepting the challenge.
I am honestly not sure what to expect from Inzaghi. There are so many variables that make forecasting how he will go very difficult to predict. Having said that, I think it is positive that our owners sought continuity in terms of appointing a coach that plays the same formation as the Gobbo that was here for the last two seasons.
From what I know about Inzaghi, he has managed Lazio on a shoe string budget for the last five years and his teams have been competitive. It is also my understanding that he is not a loose cannon like Conte. Like many posters on here have said over the course of the last week, it always felt with Conte, that we were on the precipice, right on the edge looking over, ready to tip, with there being a significant risk that it could blow up at any time and he would walk.
With Inzaghi, I feel we are in safer hands when it comes to temperament. However, what I do not know is whether Inzaghi's temperament translates into less intensity when it comes to the way he interacts with and conveys his message to his players and the game they play on the pitch.
I am hoping for the best: I am hoping that we will still be able to perform at a high level and hope that with Inzaghi as coach, he might bring to this team, new characteristics to our game that we did not have under Conte.
