Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi has renewed his contract with the Biancocelesti until 2024.

As reported by Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today, up until yesterday the 45-year-old Italian coach’s departure from the Roman club seemed almost inevitable, with reports linking him with the job at Inter and president Claudio Lotito lining up alternatives.

However, yesterday’s meeting with Lotito was a success for Lazio; Inzaghi put pen to paper on a three-year deal worth €2.2 million net per season plus add-ons. It was almost fate, then, that Inzaghi signed the deal on the 26th of May, a special day in the hearts of Biancocelesti fans.

By the end of Inzaghi’s new contract, he would be able to celebrate 25 years since his arrival at Lazio. The Italian joined the Biancocelesti in 1999 from Piacenza and spent the rest of his professional career with the club, only leaving on two brief loan spells before retiring in 2010.
