There are reports Milan wanted to sack Pippo Inzaghi and players told the Coach he was “unworthy” of the job.
The Rossoneri are in crisis after their 2-1 defeat to Udinese on Saturday and risk sliding into the bottom half of the table.
Later that evening, the team was thrown into a pre-match training retreat to prepare for Wednesday’s Serie A game against Genoa.
According to the Corriere della Sera, the situation has hit rock bottom with a furious row between Coach and players on the bus back from Udine.
It’s reported Inzaghi asked Vice-President Adriano Galliani to leave the bus momentarily so he could talk to the squad alone.
At this point he told the players they were “unworthy of this jersey.”
An unnamed individual is then believed to have replied: “We might be unworthy, but you are unworthy to be Coach of Milan.”
It’s also reported that President Silvio Berlusconi was so furious at the performance in Udine that he was about to sack Inzaghi.
He only changed his mind after a telephone consultation with Galliani later that evening.
Milan’s situation is in flux, as today Berlusconi is due to meet Thai investor Bee Taechaubol for takeover talks.
