Inzaghi: ‘I turned down an offer from another Italian club…’
Lazio head coach Simone Inzaghi has given an interview to the Corriere dello Sport in which he discussed his future at the club, as well as the reports linking him with a move to AC Milan or Juventus.
“The interest [in me] is pleasing. It did not arrive just this year but already started in 2018, even if we lost out on qualification for he Champions League in the last game against Inter, partly because of our mistakes but especially due to external factors. We would have liked to qualify.
“There had been requests from an Italian club and a foreign one, I would have certainly earned more. But I always have given the priority to Lazio, it is the team of my heart, it is the company that trusted me, I am happy with the choice to continue. In the future who knows, I am an ambitious coach, I want to grow, but right now I want to do well here. My future is Lazio, I am overjoyed to move forward.
“I talked to the president and the director, they told me that the team will remain super competitive. There will be interventions in the market, Lazio will remain strong. Tare is a guarantee – a security on the market. He is a great sports director, there is great trust in him. We are a big family. With Tare, Peruzzi, De Martino and Calveri, together with the President Lotito, we have known each other for a lifetime, there is great synergy, we are always together. We will see how the market develops.”
