Inter is unlikely to be able to reach the Top 4 of Serie A this season to win tickets to the Champions League 2023/24, which is what makes Inter BLD the most disappointed in the work efficiency of coach Simone Inzaghi. Therefore, the only chance for the Italian tactician to take the position of Inter’s direction is to win the Champions League. Needless to say, how difficult the above scenario is!
There are 3 other candidates, but obviously faces like Roberto De Zerbi (many teams pay attention), Antonio Conte (too high salary) or Thiago Motta (inexperienced) can hardly be selected by Inter.
In contrast, coach Conceicao has proved his ability in 6 seasons with Porto. The Portuguese tactician has many similarities with coach Diego Simeone, who turned Atletico into a force of European football without building a beautiful game. Traditionally, Inter have often succeeded with such personalities, of which Jose Mourinho is a prime example.
Coach Conceicao has long wanted to go to Italy to start a career, after having been successful as a player in the early years of the 21st century. In 2021 he went to Rome, but at the last minute Lazio chose to appoint coach Maurizio Sarri . Currently, coach Conceicao has a 1-year contract with Porto, meaning Inter will have to pay a fee (undisclosed, but not too large) to lure the Portuguese tactician off the Dragao pitch.
Inter only renews with De Vrij if it enters the Top 4
Stefan de Vrij’s contract with Inter expires at the end of this season. Currently, Inter has actually reached an extension with De Vrij, the contract is extended for another 2 years with a salary of 4 million euros/year, but can not sign soon. Specifically, Inter can only maintain this salary for the Dutch midfielder if he reaches the Top 4 in Serie A, which means there are lucrative revenues from the Champions League.
