All about Inzaghi's contract with Lazio in 2021

In 2021, Simone Inzaghi wishes Lazio to be more 'consistent' and finally cut down on the injury situation, but believes that with his contract there is 'no problem.

The year ended on the Aquile low, as they were beaten 3-2 in Milan's San Siro stops, meaning they won just one of their last four Serie A games.

We watched the game back in Milan and we did well, but you can't get away with mistakes in these situations," Inzaghi said at his press conference.

It wasn't as good as our success against Napoli, but we allowed them very little, which is why we won 2-0. What I want to see in Serie A is a little more of the stability we've had in the Champions League, where we're still unbeaten as the only Italian side.

Fortunately, after we started the season after the lockdown, I've never had a full squad at my disposal. Tomorrow we'll miss a few, too, so we're analyzing what we can do in the January transfer window with the club.

Inzaghi is also negotiating with Lazio about his contract extension, having been there as a player, youth team coach and manager for 21 years.

In August, we began talking about the extension of the contract and the President is someone who holds his promise. There is a lot of discussion in the media about this, but I don't see any issues. If we have the contract already worked down and signed or it will be done later, it changes nothing for me.

Who is Tommaso Inzaghi?

Born in 2001, Tommaso Inzaghi, an adult just a few months old and an especially well-known face on Instagram, divides himself between Rome and London with numbers worthy of the best influencers, firmly committed to being a professional footballer, just like his father, though pursuing classes, business media and photography.

Tommaso is the son of actress Alessia Marcuzzi and football player Simone Inzaghi.

Discreet, stunning and dark, he has not yet appeared on television, and clearly, at least for now, he has no intention of doing so.

Therefore, the young VIP of "Casa Marcuzzi" takes pride in regularly sharing daily life shots on his Instagram page, the same as any teenager who divides himself between love, friends, school and sports commitments would live.

He may seem like a little shy boy, he doesn't like to flaunt or appear, but when he finds himself on TV in the arms of the most popular mom, he comes back to be the affectionate puppy of the house that we've seen countless times on Alessia's own social networks.
