Lazio coach Inzaghi hits out at management over contract delays

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi took aim at the board after Sunday's defeat to Sassuolo.

Inzaghi used the moment to break his silence over drawn out contract talks.

"I'll meet with the club on Wednesday," he told Sky Italia.

“Last season too, when we were top of the table before the covid pandemic hit, there was still discussion around my contract renewal.

“It has been 16 months since then, I would only have waited this long because I've been at Lazio for 21 years and love this club, and I'll wait another three days because it's Lazio.

“I would not have done this in any other situation. I inherited a team that was getting insulted by its own fans in a pre-season training retreat five years ago, now we've qualified for Europe for five years running, we brought home three trophies and finished ahead of massive clubs.

“As I said before, there is only one problem here and that's Lazio. You all know what this club means to me, but of the clubs in the Champions League Round of 16, I was the only one whose contract was running down.

“I always kept going, and was fortunate enough to work with wonderful lads who didn't listen to rumours, problems, contract talks that were constantly getting postponed. At the end of the day, I take sixth place and some regrets from this season, but also the many good things we achieved."
