Lazio’s Inzaghi or Ex-Juventus Coach Allegri Favourites to Succeed Conte at Inter

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi and former Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri are the favourites to succeed Antonio Conte at Inter.

As reported by Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano on Twitter earlier today, Conte will be leaving the job with immediate effect after having disagreements with the club’s management over the future of the project. He has been paid a €7 million compensation fee, leaving the club’s head coach role vacant.

Inzaghi will have a meeting with president Claudio Lotito later today to determine his future. The 45-year-old Italian coach spoke to Inter earlier in the week about his interest in the role, but there is confidence in the Biancocelesti environment that Inzaghi will put pen to paper for a two-year deal.

Allegri has taken a break from the footballing world since leaving Juventus at the end of the 2018/19 season but is now looking to return to a coaching role. He has also been linked with a move to Real Madrid.
