Simone Inzaghi (born 5 April 1976 in Piacenzamarker, Emilia-Romagna) is an Italianmarker professional football who currently plays for S.S. Lazio, as a striker.

Football career

Inzaghi started playing professional football in the 1993–94 season with hometown team Piacenza Calcio, although he did not get to play a first team game in that season. The next season he was loaned out to Serie C1 side Carpi F.C. 1909, where he played nine games. His first goal arrived in 1995–96, playing for Novara Calcio in Serie C2.

After two more loan stints from 1996–98, at lowly A.C. Lumezzane and U.S. Brescello, Inzaghi came back to Piacenza, and played his first game for the team (also his first top flight match) during 1998–99, finishing the campaign with 15 goals in 30 matches.

The next season, Inzaghi was signed by S.S. Lazio, and had a productive first season with his new club, scoring seven in 22 league games, and nine in just 11 UEFA Champions League matches (including four in a single game against Olympique de Marseille, on March 14, 2000, with which he equaled the competition record held by Marco van Basten since 1992). He also made his debut for the Italian national football team, two weeks later, against Spain. Lazio went on to win both the Scudetto and the domestic cup that season, with Inzaghi helping the side to win the latter competition again, in 2003-04. At the end of this season, he extended his link until June 2009.

In 2004–05, Inzaghi was involved in a six-month player exchange with Fabio Bazzani, going to U.C. Sampdoria, in January 2005. He returned to Lazio in 2005–06 and stayed for 2006–07, with only twelve appearances overall in two seasons.

The following season, Inzaghi joined Atalanta B.C. on loan. Although he struggled to find his form early in the season, he managed to play in 19 league contests, mostly as a second-half substitute, but did not find the net.

Inzaghi returned to Lazio for 2008-09, despite not being in the plans of manager Delio Rossi. A move away did not materialize and, despite few pre-season trainings with the squad, he remained on payroll, making his comeback in a 2-0 Italian Cup win over former side Atalanta. Just three days later, Inzaghi made his first league appearance of the season, coming on as a substitute and scoring an equaliser two minutes from time to rescue a point against U.S. Lecce, in a 1-1 home draw. It was his first Serie A goal since September 2004.

Personal life

Inzaghi's older brother, Filippo, is also a footballer (and a striker). Simone has a son, Tommaso, born April 29, 2001, with ex-girlfriend Alessia Marcuzzi (a model and an actress).
