Filippo Inzaghi replaced as manager of AC Milan by the returning Carlo Ancelotti
Filippo Inzaghi has been replaced as manager of AC Milan by the returning Carlo Ancelotti after just one season in charge of the Serie A giants.
The former Juventus and Milan striker faced a difficult first year in full-time management, having guided the seven time European champions to a disappointing 10th placed finish last season.
Carlo Ancelotti who managed the club for 8 years before leaving for Chelsea, has been appointed as Inzaghi's replacement. Ancelotti's previous tenure brought huge success for the club as they won the Champions League on two separate occasions as well as the Super Cup twice, and then the Serie A, FIFA Club World Cup, Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana once.
Inzaghi's team won fewer Serie A games in the last campaign than any Milan side has, form which has ended the 41 year old's 14 year spell with the club as player and manager. The former striker's successor Ancelotti managed Inzaghi in his entire time at the club. Inzaghi in an interview said he wishes Ancelotti "a great man the best of luck" and insists that he "has no hard feelings" with a club that has done "so much for him".
Since being sacked from Real Madrid, Ancelotti has spent the past six months resting and announced before hand that he was ready to enter management in the upcoming 15-16 season. Ancelotti reportedly received a bumper contract in order to take the Milan job, who saw him as the only person that could bring some silverware back to the club that has won so much in the past.
