Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi has reached an agreement with the club to extend his contract until 2024, according to a report from Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today.
The report details how the 44-year-old Italian coach met the Biancocelesti’s management yesterday to iron out a new contract deal. Initially, the idea was a two-year deal with an option for a third, but a surprise agreement was found for a direct three-year deal.
Should Inzaghi remain in charge of the Lazio squad until then, he would match Carlo Ancelotti’s record eight consecutive years in charge of AC Milan, between 2001 to 2009.
Inzaghi would be earning around €2.5 million net per season, with important add-ons linked to Champions League qualification.
Lazio want to remain a consistent feature in the Champions League and so will be looking to rejuvenate the squad in this summer’s transfer window, whilst also signing some experienced veterans.
