Filippo Inzaghi announces he's leaving Benevento

Filippo Inzaghi has announced he's leaving Benevento.

Inzaghi steps down after Benevento's relegation was confirmed before Sunday's final round of the season.

"We were all together when we won, but I felt alone when we started losing," Inzaghi said at a pres conference.

“They even made an official statement where I was accused not to have watched the final five minutes of the game against Crotone. I can't accept lies, it's essential to grow also after a defeat.

“I am disappointed, my staff and I have been working 10 hours a day," he added.

Does it mean he is leaving?

“Yes, I have my responsibilities, but I leave with my head held high. I wish I will meet Benevento where they deserve to be. Under this ownership, they have everything they need to come back to Serie A soon.

“However, I am not the only one responsible. We've played with our heads held high after winning the Serie B by a lot. Too many things have been underestimated. It's impossible to improve like this.

Benevento and their fans will always remain in my heart. I am sorry for the way it ended. We gave everything, we should not have conceded that goal against Crotone, but there were some strange incidents in the game against Cagliari."
