AC Milan have parted company with Clarence Seedorf just five months into his contract and named Filippo Inzaghi as the Dutchman's successor.
The 40-year-old former Italian international striker has inked a two-year deal to become the Rossoneri's third coach this year. Seedorf, who replaced Massimiliano Allegri in January, departs San Siro after overseeing a run of 11 wins from 19 Serie A outings as Milan finished the 2013/14 campaign in eighth.
"I'm really happy – today is an unforgettable day for me," said Inzaghi. "I wish to thank president [Silvio] Berlusconi and the whole club for the faith they have shown in me. I'm honoured and proud to be the new coach of a club that has been part of my life for so many years, a club that gave me joy and emotion. I'll give everything for these colours, with dedication and passion like I always did as a player and coach of the youth squad."
Inzaghi underlined his coaching credentials during two years in charge of the club's Allievi Nazionali team, leading them to the round of 16 in this season's inaugural UEFA Youth League. He scored 126 goals in 300 games in all competitions during his 11-season spell with Milan, in which he won both the UEFA Champions League and the Scudetto twice.
