Inter Milan GM Marotta: First call made to Inzaghi he was at dinner with Lotito

Inter Milan GM Beppe Marotta admits their first call to Simone Inzaghi was when he was at dinner with Lazio president Claudio Lotito.

Inzaghi would eventually anger Lotito with his decision to leave Lazio last summer.

Marotta said: "Before getting Inzaghi, we had contact with [Max] Allegri.

“We never thought Simone would be available, while Max and obviously had an interesting profile so we spoke.

“We called him [Inzaghi] not knowing he was at dinner [with Lazio president Claudio Lotito] and Simone was obviously a little embarrassed.

“I have to say that the timing and intuition by Piero Ausilio and myself were decisive in getting him to find a quick agreement but with respect towards Lotito.

“When a coach or a player stay at a club for too long, as was the case Inzaghi at Lazio, it is right to try something different, an opportunity to grow."
