The elephant in the room for Lazio remains the ongoing contract extension discussions between the Biancocelesti and their manager Simone Inzaghi.
As the 2020-21 season is in the final stretch, the 44-year-old remains out of a contract for the next campaign. Although Lazio is where his heart lies, once prominent clubs have coaching vacancies, Inzaghi is someone they’ll have circled.
There’s been chatter that should Juventus FC part ways with Andrea Pirlo, perhaps they’d go after Inzaghi. If these are the type of clubs that come after the Italian tactician, it would be hard not to listen.
Despite contract talks dragging out, former Lazio defender Sebastiano Siviglia believes that Inzaghi will remain with the Rome-based club. During an interview with Tuttomercatoweb (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) Siviglia explained why he believes Inzaghi stays with the Biancocelesti.
Inzaghi? He has done very well at Lazio, carrying out what has been an exciting project sometimes.
However, there are moments when we have to look at what we have done and decide if we want to continue; the classic renewal skirmishes are part of the game.
Both Inzaghi and the club have to plan for the future; the relationship between them have always been excellent. That is why, in the end, I am convinced that Inzaghi will find an agreement with Lotito.
There’s still plenty of time to reach an agreement, but as the calendar now turns to April and June being two months away, anxiety levels could go up if Inzaghi remains without a contract for next season.
