Diego Simeone’s agent believes it is inevitable the Argentine will one day be installed as Inter Milan coach. The 48-year-old has been in charge of Atletico Madrid since 2011 but looked set to leave the club last summer, only to sign a new contract.
Simeone spent two seasons playing at Inter, helping the club win the UEFA Cup in 1997-98 before moving on to Lazio in 1999.
El Cholo himself has suggested he would like to coach at the Giuseppe Meazza and his agent, Natalia Simeone, who is also his sister, has further fanned the flames of a potential move to Italy by suggesting the switch is almost a formality.
“Diego said it too, sooner or later, he’ll end up at Inter,” Natalia Simeone told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I think it is only a matter of time. He loves the club, the atmosphere and living in Milan. Inter is a side he would really love to coach.
“I should point out that he is also still very fond of Lazio, too.”
