The Lazio manager has been successful this season taking the team to the eighth place in the table and winning the Coppa Italia.

Lazio won the 2019 Coppa Italia after beating Atalanta in the Final.

And the team’s coach, Simone Inzaghi, has been rumored to be replacing Massimiliano Allegri at the helm of Juventus.

But the Lazio coach has not talked to the Bianconeri, at least his is what his assistant manager Massimiliano Farris told Football Italia.

“It’s very simple. Simone has a profile that Juve like, and there were already links before,” Farris said.

“Today all the newspapers are putting Inzaghi in pole position. What I can tell you is that to date there’s been no contact.”

“My personal consideration is this: I don’t think Juve could’ve ended their relationship with Allegri without having another coach lined up,” he added.

“Therefore, I believe the choice can fall back on him or that it will fall on someone else.”

Farris explained: “It’s clear that he finds their interest a pleasure. We had lunch with families at Formello, where the president also talked to Simone.”

“I then had no way of talking to him, but the fact there’s a contract and the absolute will of the President to reiterate Simone is untouchable and that he wants to prolong their relationship, I believe, is a good omen for him staying.”
