Milan sack Seedorf, appoint Inzaghi
One legend out, one legend in.
AC Milan sacked manager Clarence Seedorf on Monday and replaced him with another former player Filippo Inzaghi, 40, on a two-year deal.
An announcement on the club's official website read: "AC Milan communicates that Clarence Seedorf has been dismissed. Filippo Inzaghi has been appointed as first team coach, and is under contract until June 30th, 2016."
Seedorf had been in the job for less than five months. He took over from Massimiliano Allegri in January as the Serie A giants were floundering in 11th place.
Despite taking the club to eighth in the league and winning 11 of his 22 matches in charge, the Rossoneri clearly felt that the 38-year-old former Dutch midfielder was not the right man for the job.
A goal poacher extraordinaire during his playing days, he scored 126 times in 300 appearances for Milan.
Inzaghi became a youth coach after retiring in 2012, the same year Seedorf left the San Siro for Brazilian side Botafogo.
