Seedorf fired as Milan bring in Inzaghi

09 June 2014, 17:11

Milan - AC Milan fired coach Clarence Seedorf on Monday after less than five months in charge and replaced him with youth team boss Filippo Inzaghi, a move that had been on hold for two weeks.

"AC Milan have dismissed coach Clarence Seedorf and handed over the first team to Filippo Inzaghi until June 30, 2016," the Serie A club said in a statement.

Former Netherlands midfielder Seedorf, who had no previous coaching experience, quickly fell out of favour despite overseeing a significant improvement in results.

Milan won 11 out of 19 Serie A matches under the Dutchman compared to only five of the previous 19 under predecessor Massimiliano Allegri on their way to an eighth-place finish, missing out on the Europa League by one point.

Former Italy striker Inzaghi, who has also never coached at senior level, had been in charge of the club's under-19 team.

He spent 11 seasons playing for Milan, winning two Serie A titles and two Champions League crowns, and collected 57 caps for his country.

Inzaghi was on the end of one of former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson's most famous quotes when the Scot said: "That lad must have been born offside".
