Pippo Inzaghi admits his Milan career is effectively over after defeat to Genoa. “Tomorrow we will know.”
The Rossoneri fell to a second consecutive defeat, flattened 3-1 at San Siro by Gian Piero Gasperini’s Genoa.
“This is football. There are bad nights and this is always the risk for a Coach,” Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.
“I am disappointed, as the team wanted to stay in the retreat to become more united and prepare a different kind of game.
“Compared to Udine, we undoubtedly gave it our all, but we met a Genoa side that is in better shape and deserved to win.
“We gave all we had, which ultimately isn’t very much right now and certainly isn’t enough. We played badly. It’s true that after the retreat I expected more, but what more can I say?
“Now we have to try and end this season in a dignified manner. The tactics are fairly irrelevant, as when you struggle like this there are other aspects.
“A light went off inside of us after the derby and we are having trouble finding it again. When we meet a team like Genoa that is in better shape and deserves to win, we can only tip our hats to them.”
The rumours coming out of the Milan camp are that there will be a ‘night of reflection’ with a likely sacking tomorrow.
Cristian Brocchi is expected to take over, as he is currently Coach of the Primavera youth team – the job Inzaghi had until last season.
“I never give up, as that is how I approached my career as a player too. I walk with my head held high, the club will make its evaluations and I accept any decision they choose. Tomorrow we will know.
“I know it was a long time ago, but we did beat Napoli and it all went wrong after the series of injuries. I have few regrets, I am sorry our last two performances were so bad – the worst being this and the one against Lazio.”
This evening Bee Taechaubol met with President Silvio Berlusconi and there are reports the club is very close to completing its move over to the Thai investor.
