Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi remained calm about his future after yesterday’s 1-0 win over Parma.
Speaking to gathered reporters in a press conference (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) yesterday evening, the 45-year-old Italian coach first spoke about the dramatic win over Roberto D’Aversa’s side.
I’m very happy with the win. We were very afraid of today’s game. We already fell two years ago against a relegated team at home. Today we had a lot of players out of training, injured and not at their best like Escalante, Luiz Felipe and Caicedo.
We get the win and for the fifth year in a row we will be headed to a European competition. We could have been luckier in the first half. If Luis Alberto’s shot had gone in, it would have been a different game. The games are all to play and to win.
He then looked back to the weekend’s disappointing 2-0 loss to 13th place Fiorentina.
We were disappointed. We had a great first half in Florence but there were key moments where they were decisive and that haunted us.
After a match like that, we would be disappointed to miss out on the Champions League but there are still nine points left and we must look ahead.
The Biancocelesti coach spoke about the physical condition of the squad.
I’m very happy. It’s not easy to bring in players who have been injured.
All the guys gave their all, both those who played from the start and those who came on.
Finally, Inzaghi spoke about his future. The 45-year-old Italian’s contract expires with the Biancocelesti at the end of next month, and currently, he has not signed a new deal.
There are still three games to go. In 8 or 9 days, I’ll sit down with Tare and Lotito and we’ll talk about our objectives, what went right and what went wrong, always with the utmost calmness.
With Inzaghi’s future at Lazio shrouded in doubt, clubs are beginning to dream of hiring the 45-year-old Italian coach. Premier League sides Tottenham and Leicester City have both been linked with the Lazio man, but indications still suggest that he will sign a contract renewal with the Biancocelesti.
Lazio’s next match is the derby against Roma on Saturday evening.
