Pippo Inzaghi: “Simone Represented a Lot For Lazio, I Think He Made the Right Choice In Leaving”

New Brescia coach Pippo Inzaghi thought that his brother Simone made the right choice by leaving Lazio for Inter.

Speaking to gathered reporters in a press conference (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the 47-year-old Italian coach commented on Simone Inzaghi’s decision to leave Rome for the Nerazzurri.

We often advise each other, but it is clear that the choices are personal. Simone represented a lot for Lazio, after five years there comes a time when you either have to change ten players or change the coach. I think he made the right choice in leaving.

He did something incredible at Lazio. When your contract expires you can consider other offers. He’s happy for me too, Brescia is an important club but we’ll have to fight and suffer, but that’s how it is.

Simone Inzaghi spent five years with Lazio from 2016 to 2021. In that time, he oversaw 242 matches in total across all competitions, picking up an average of 1.78 points per match across that period.
