Pippo Inzaghi said Milan “must do what they think is right” as reports of his dismissal gain traction.
The most likely replacement would be current assistant manager Mauro Tassotti, although Sky Sport Italia note Primavera youth team Coach – and former Inzaghi teammate – Cristian Brocchi is another candidate.
The Coach was under fire for his decisions after a 2-2 draw with Verona, including dropping Mattia Destro and replacing striker Giampaolo Pazzini with defender Salvatore Bocchetti.
“We are all disappointed, as we had reacted well to going behind, but then conceded a goal at the end like idiots,” said Inzaghi in his Press conference.
“It wasn’t a fantastic performance, but we were still about to take home three important points. We are all bitter and disappointed.”
When asked about his future, the tactician confessed it wasn’t up to him.
“The club must do what they think is right. The club will tell you if it has made a decision or not. I go forward. We gave our all, but it wasn’t enough tonight.
“I am sad to have conceded that goal at the end, as three points would’ve reassured everyone a bit.
“We will try to go forward with these ideas and play better.”
Inzaghi also argued that his decision to introduce Salvatore Bocchetti for Pazzini when 2-1 up was an attacking move.
“The two midfielders were struggling and I had no replacements, so I hoped that by pushing Luca Antonelli further forward we could spark a few counter-attacks.
“I thought more of scoring a third goal than of defending the lead, as we still had three attacking players on the pitch.”
