AC Milan hoping for success with Inzaghi
New Delhi: Italian giants AC Milan have sacked Clarence Seedorf after just less than five months of appointing him as head coach of the club. Fillipo Inzaghi has been named as the new boss of the Rossoneri.
The former Milan striker has been awarded a two-year deal by the club. Until his appointment, "Pippo"as he was affectionately called during his playing career had been the youth-team coach of the club.
Seedorf was roped in by Milan after they sacked Massimiliano Allegri in January as the club slumped to 11th place in the Serie A table. The Dutch midfield maestro guided the club to 11 wins from 19 matches after taking charge from Allegri.
However, finishing 45 points off winners Juventus meant the 18-time Serie A champions considered this performance as a failure and decided to sack Seedorf. Both Inzaghi and Seedorf were not only teammates at Milan but also enjoy legendary status at the club.
Coincidentally, they both left Milan in the same year in 2012, with Inzaghi joining the youth team set-up and Seedorf trying his first hand at coaching with Botafogo in Brazil. Inzaghi has worked well with the youth-academy players, which is why the management of the club felt it would be a good move to hand him charge of the first team.
With the former striker knows exactly what the fans demand from Milan players and he has been a part of the club`s fabric for over a decade. After replacing one club legend with another, flamboyant owner Silvio Berlusconi will be hoping for a change in Milan`s fortunes during the next season.
