Pippo Inzaghi has refused to confirm or deny that he is set to be unveiled as Milan’s new Coach.
It appears a formality that the 40-year-old will be appointed as the San Siro giants’ boss, though the departure of current tactician Clarence Seedorf has still not yet been finalised.
Inzaghi, currently still in charge of Milan’s Primavera team, today took training as normal and insisted to journalists that he had heard nothing from the club to suggest his role would be changing anytime soon.
“I wanted to say that I am here to train the Primavera team because I am the Primavera Coach until June 2016,” Inzaghi is quoted as saying by Milan Channel.
“I have had no other communications about it until now, other than what has been written!
“I am a Milan employee. Of course, if Milan call and ask me to fulfil another role I will be very happy, but if not I will remain to coach the Primavera as I have always done.
“If there is no further communication I will preside over the Dossena Tournament, where we will be present. That is what we are preparing for.
“Excited by what I’m reading? Who doesn’t get emotional about what they read? Milan is my life and my story.
“I’ve stopped playing for Milan but I do everything they ask of me. We’ll see what happens, I’m a Milan employee until 2016.
“I could have left but I wanted to stay because I have a contract here. That’s the path I will follow.
“If some good news is communicated to me then great. Otherwise, I am proud to continue coaching these boys.”
