Inter’s Inzaghi named Serie A coach of the season

 Simone Inzaghi, who led Inter Milan to the Italian title, has been voted Serie A coach of the season, the Italian League announced on Friday.

Inzaghi, 48, succeeded Luciano Spalletti, who took the honour at the helm of Napoli last season.

Inzaghi was chosen by a panel of sports publication directors, said the league, which did not detail voting tallies.

It could only be Simone Inzaghi,” Lega Serie A CEO Luigi De Siervo said in a statement.

“Inter have both the best attack and best defence and also went on a 28-game unbeaten run,” said the statement, adding that Inzhagi “has had his players continuously play an exciting brand of football while maintaining compactness and solidity”.
