AC Milan sack Inzaghi



AC Milan have sacked coach Filippo Inzaghi after just one year in charge.

Inzaghi, 41, who played for Milan from 2001 until his retirement in 2012, replaced former team-mate Clarence Seedorf in the post last June.

Milan finished in 10th place in Serie A after only 13 wins in 2014-15, and were 35 points behind champions Juventus.

Former Serbia coach Sinisa Mihajlovic, who left his post as Sampdoria boss this month, confirmed two days ago he would be taking over at Milan.

After retiring as a player, former striker Inzaghi became youth-team coach before leaving that role to succeed Seedorf, who only lasted five months in the role.

Milan players were ordered to stay at their training ground indefinitely following a defeat at Udinese in April.

Four days later, during a 3-1 home defeat by Genoa, supporters in the Curva Sud stand of the San Siro formed the word basta – Italian for enough.

Fans had previously boycotted a 3-1 home win over Cagliari.

However their frustration was with a lack of clarity from owner Silvio Berlusconi over his future plans for the club, rather than their manager. — BBC
