Lazio: Manager Simone Inzaghi leaves Rome based outfit after five-years at the helm

Simone Inzaghi led Lazio to one Coppa Italia title and two Italian supercups during his five-year stay at the Stadio Olimpico

Lazio have announced that manager Simone Inzaghi has stepped down as manager following five-years in charge of I Biancocelesti.

The Italian giants issued an abrupt, 32-word statement confirming that Simone Inzaghi, 45, will not be continuing his affiliation with the club.

The Rome based oufit released the statement on Thursday evening, and they decided to not even use their manager’s name whilst getting their message across.

Inzaghi has been laboriously tipped to join Serie A champions Inter Milan, after the sudden departure of Antonio Conte on Wednesday.

Lazio have communicated through their official channels that Simone Inzaghi is not continuing as manager of the two-time Italian champions

In an official Statement Lazio said: “We respect the rethinking of a coach and, first of all, of a player who for many years has linked his name to the Lazio family and to the many Biancocelesti successes”.

Le Aquile did not confirm what Inzaghi’s next move would be, or whether he would continue in the football management industry.

Inzaghi’s deal with the club was set to run out at the end of next month, but in the last week it appeared that an agreement was reached for Inzaghi to continue as Lazio manager until the 30 June 2024.

Now, Lazio stand firm on the fact that they respect Inzaghi’s “rethinking”, suggesting the manager has after all received offers from elsewhere.
