Ancelotti backs Inzaghi

Real Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti has backed Pippo Inzaghi to do well as Milan’s new boss.

The former Rossoneri striker, who is set to be promoted from his position as the club’s Primavera Coach, will replace Clarance Seedorf in charge of the senior team.

Now, he has received the best wishes and backing of Ancelotti, who led the San Siro giants to two Champions League titles during his own spell in charge of the club.

Speaking to ANSA, the 54-year-old said Inzaghi’s lack of experience as a top level tactician would not be important and expressed his belief that the ex-forward has the characteristics needed to succeed.

“Inzaghi has fantastic enthusiasm,” Ancelotti is quoted as saying. “He already has some experience from working with the youth team.

“He has the characteristics needed, he knows the environment and if he becomes Milan Coach, I wish him good luck.

“No one has experience at the start of their career. You get it with time. The most important thing is to know the game.

“The Coach must not only keep an eye on the matches and tactics, but also prepare all training sessions.”
