Inter Milan confirmed on Tuesday that Simone Inzaghi has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the San Siro until 2024.
Inter chairman Steven Zhang claimed that Inzaghi will continue for “two more years” after extending his current contract with the club by a year in a video shared on social media by the club.
He has also reportedly earned a one million euro pay boost to five million euros according to Italian media reports.
For all of Inter’s doubts about Inzaghi’s ability to lead them back into the Serie A championship fight following an exciting final day, Inter are showing trust in the former Lazio and Italy striker.
As a result of Antonio Conte’s decision to leave Inter Milan, he joined Inter from Lazio last summer.
Inter were on the verge of a full-blown disaster when they sold Romelu Lukaku, Achraf Hakimi, and Christian Eriksen only a few weeks after Inzaghi’s arrival as manager.
Even though no one predicted Inter to win the championship, Inzaghi was so good at replacing departed players with inexpensive replacements that they remained long-term contenders.
With his innovative style of play and spectacular victories against arch rivals Juventus, he became one of the greatest coaches in the history of European football.
Inter qualified for the Champions League knockout rounds for the first time since 2011/12, barely losing to eventual finalists Liverpool in the last 16 of the competition.
Last season, Inter Milan’s offense ranked first in Serie A, and they are expected to re-sign striker Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea and free agent Paulo Dybala.
