Inter is back

Losing a final with a smile is impossible, and looking for positive sides always seems a very poor consolation. However, this Inter can say goodbye to the season with their heads held high, although it sounds cliché. Inzaghi’s two years had two big spots in Serie A, where the Milanese lost the race for the Scudetto against their Milanese ‘cousins’ a year ago and closed the league with 12 defeats, never approaching the lead in this one, but the journey in the Cups has been exceptional.

With Pippo’s brother in command, Inter won two Italian Cups, two Super Cups, returned to the Champions League round of 16 ten years later, fell with honor to 2022 finalist Liverpool and, this season, reached the final starting in the group of death. Doing better was impossible, especially considering the development of a final in which City seemed like a normal team, forced to defend themselves locked in their area for the final 27 minutes and asking for the time.

The typhosi They applauded and even celebrated the performance of their team in the center of Milan, who exceeded all European expectations and also had the enormous merit of winning a Euroderbi with Milan in the semifinal. Now, it’s time to think about the future, with certainty: Simone Inzaghi must continue to command.

The club was evaluating his dismissal several times in the middle of this season, but a finish that bordered on perfection makes his departure unthinkable. His current contract expires in 2024, the entity will try to extend it until 2025 and the coach, after the defeat against City, acknowledged that there is “great harmony” with the club and that, in the coming days, he will sit down with the board of directors to schedule the new season.

It will be a difficult market. Up front, for example, the only sure thing to stay is Lautaro Martínez: Lukaku will depend on Chelsea (Inter will request another year on loan), Dzeko could go to Fenerbahçe and Correa is also considering leaving. Onana, one of the protagonists of the year, may represent the great sale of these months: the goalkeeper arrived as a free agent and with the important offers that he is receiving from the Premier, the club would make a huge surplus in its balance sheet. Marotta and Ausilio will have a lot of work, but they will be able to count on the almost 100 million that this unforgettable Champions League campaign leaves as an inheritance, in addition to having reinforced the international image of the team after difficult years. After a decade of bitterness, the 2020 Europa League final, the 2021 Scudetto, the four trophies and the great European adventures of the last two courses arrived. President Zhang, meanwhile, has overcome the economic crisis of 2021 and is committed to the (complicated) project of the new stadium to continue growing. The worst is behind us.
