AC Milan fires Inzaghi

Milan - AC Milan has fired coach Filippo Inzaghi, opening the way for him to be replaced by Sinisa Mihajlovic.
Milan informed Inzaghi he was unwanted earlier this month, but was hoping to terminate his contract under mutual terms. The talks apparently failed.
A club statement says, "AC Milan communicates that Filippo Inzaghi has been dismissed."
In his first season in charge, Inzaghi led Milan to a dismal 10th-place finish. Still, having been a standout striker for Milan, Inzaghi commands respect within the club.
Mihajlovic has reportedly already agreed to a two-year contract, with an option for a third season, at 2.5 million euros ($2.8 million) per season.
The 46-year-old Mihajlovic coached Sampdoria for the past two seasons, leading the Genoa club to seventh this year.
