Inter could replace Inzaghi as the Nerazzurri manager has struggled to deliver consistent performances. Moreover, Inter are ready with a proficient replacement as Thiago Motta has been one of the best managers in Serie A recently. Inter have been adamant that they back Simone Inzaghi. But the defeats have been piling up in Serie A this season which can not be ignored. According to Di Marzio, the former Lazio manager is getting close to the door at Inter.
Inter Milan had a rough start to the season, as they struggled in defense, and were poor in pre-season. The Nerazzurri manager did not prepare his team well before the start of the season, and it was evident that they were not in their best physical shape. However, Inzaghi has earned respect in the Champions League, as Inter have been brilliant in the big games like against Barcelona and Porto. The former Lazio manager has brought Inter to the quarter-finals of the Champions League after 12 years. But the Nerazzurri’s poor performance against smaller opposition are worrying the directors.
Inter could replace Inzaghi with Thiago Motta says Di Marzio
According to Di Marzio, Inzaghi could change the minds of the directors if he gets Inter into the semi-finals of the Champions League. But currently, they feel the Nerazzurri should have been closer to Napoli, who are now out of reach. Inter have Thiago Motta on their list and have inquired about him several times. Another candidate is Antonio Conte, who will most likely leave in the summer.
The directors do not like Inter’s lack of intensity against lower opponents. Under Conte, Inter were ready for every game and had a consistent run that helped them to win the Scudetto. Inzaghi will have to improve his domestic performance to stay in the top four this season.
