Lazio celebrated coach Simone Inzaghi’s 45th birthday with a post on their Instagram page earlier today.

The Italian took over from coach Stefano Pioli in 2016 and has quickly become a fan favourite in Rome, guiding the team to a Coppa Italia victory and two Supercoppa Italiana, as well as achieving qualification to the Champions League last season.

Inzaghi’s contract expires at the end of the season, but in a recent press conference he confirmed his intention to sign a new deal with the club.
