Inzaghi sacked as AC Milan coach after just one season in charge

Filippo Inzaghi has been sacked as manager of AC Milan after just one season in charge of the Italian club.

AC Milan endured a disappointing campaign under Inzaghi and finished 10th in Serie A to miss out again on European football after finishing eighth the previous year.

Inzaghi was under contract at the club for another season.

A statement from AC Milan read: "AC Milan announces it has dismissed first team coach Filippo Inzaghi and thanks him for the work done."


Former Sampdoria boss Sinisa Mihajlovic is the favourite to take over the vacant role.

The Rossoneri's first choice was Carlo Ancelotti but the former Real Madrid tactician turned down an offer to return to the helm earlier this month.

Mihajlovic, 46, stepped down as Sampdoria coach at the end of the 2014-15 campaign after almost two years in charge of the Genoa outfit.

Milan are looking for a spark after two lacklustre campaigns.

The Rossoneri began the 2013-14 campaign with Massimiliano Allegri in charge but fired him and put former player Clarence Seedorf in command of the team.

Seedorf's spell was shortlived, though, and he parted with Milan immediately after the season before Inzaghi took the reins.

Inzaghi had previously been in charge of the club's youth team but the Rossoneri struggled during his tenure, winning just 13 of their 38 league games.
