AC Milan have parted ways with Clarence Seedorf after just five months and named Filippo Inzaghi as his successor.
The 40-year-old former Milan striker has signed a two-year deal and becomes the Rossoneri’s third coach this year.
Seedorf had replaced Massimiliano Allegri in January and had won 11 out of his 19 Seria A games, as Milan finished the 2013/14 campaign in eighth.
Inzaghi has been in charge of Milan’s B-team for two years and will now take over from the Dutch club legend, who had retired from playing football to help Milan.
Both, Seedorf and Inzaghi, were part of the glorious Milan side which won two Champions League trophies in 2003 and 2007.
Seedorf had been expected to be relieved of his duties as he came under criticism from president Silvio Berlusconi and chief executive Adriano Galliani.
“AC Milan comminucates to have sacked coach Clarence Seedorf and have entrusted the first team, through June 30, 2016, to Filippo Inzaghi,” reads the official statement on the club’s website.
