Filippo Inzaghi reportedly in line for AC Milan jobby Jack Kitson / 01 May 2014, 11:31Tweet
Filippo Inzaghi is reportedly on the verge of replacing former teammate Clarence Seedorf as manager of AC Milan. The club legend, who is currently head coach of Milan’s Primavera (under-19 team), looks all set to step up to the plate and take charge of the Rossoneri in the summer, as the Italian giants bid to bounce back from what has been a woeful season.
If reports are true then current boss Seedorf will depart after Milan's final three games against Inter, Atalanta and Sassuolo. The Dutchman was appointed at the helm back in January following the sacking of Massimiliano Allegri. However, despite a recent five game winning streak, on the whole results simply haven’t been of the required standard, with Milan currently struggling down in 10th in Serie A; an eye-watering 42 points behind league leaders Juventus. Meanwhile they are 18 points adrift of the top-4, meaning they will miss out on Champions League football next season.
Club owner Silvio Berlusconi will now reportedly opt to place his faith in the inexperience Inzaghi, who has been in charge of Milan's youth team since the start of the 2012/13 season. As a player the 40-year-old made over 200 appearances for the club, during which he won two league titles, two Champions League trophies, a UEFA Super Cup brace, a FIFA Club World Cup, and one each of the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana.
