Official: Inzaghi appointed Milan Coach

Milan have confirmed that Clarence Seedorf has been sacked as Coach, with Pippo Inzaghi coming in as his replacement.

The Dutchman was given his first managerial job in January, succeeding Massimiliano Allegri at San Siro following a disappointing start to the season.

The former midfielder however, was unable to change the tide at the Rossoneri, and led the team to an eighth place finish in Serie A.

Rumours have been circulating for weeks that Seedorf would be sacked, but first had to agree a severance package, with the board unwilling to pay the remainder of the wages he was owed after signing a two-and-a-half-year deal.

But the club have officially announced that they have sacked the 38-year-old this afternoon, with Gazzetta dello Sport saying that they will put him on gardening leave and continue to pay him until the end of the contract.

A statement reads: “AC Milan wishes to communicate that Coach Clarence Seedorf has been sacked, and the first team has been entrusted to Pippo Inzaghi until June 30, 2016.”

Inzaghi has done wonders with the Milan Primavera team, but makes the step up for, again, his first senior management role. Gazzetta report he will be paid €700,000 per season.
