Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi came in 28th place in Four Four Two’s Top 50 Coaches of the Season.
As reported by Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today, the 45-year-old Italian coach came in 28th in the well-known British magazine’s Top 50 Coaches of the Season list, ahead of other Italian coaches like Sassuolo’s Roberto De Zerbi (40th) and Juventus’ Andrea Pirlo (not included).
Other Serie A coaches on the list include Napoli’s Gennaro Gattuso in 22nd place, AC Milan’s Stefano Pioli in 17th and Atalanta’s Gian Piero Gasperini in 9th.
The top three on the list started with Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola in first, owing to their incredible playing style and dominance of the Premier League and Champions League this season.
In second was Inter coach Antonio Conte, whose Nerazzurri side finally broke Juventus’ grip on the Scudetto. Third place was given to Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone for their title challenge in La Liga.
On Inzaghi, Four Four Two said:
Lazio are a throwback of sorts under Simone Inzaghi. Inzaghi favours a back three with Lucas Leiva screening, doesn’t build up with the same patience as many modern sides and looks to long balls to get his strikers into games.
It works though: Lazio are back to pushing for Champions League places, where they belong, thanks to a manager who has revitalised their play in recent times.
