Veteran rejects Watford and Reading to stay on as youth coach.
Italian legend Pippo Inazghi has officially retired from football and will take on a coaching role at his former club AC Milan.
The 38-year-old striker had offers from English duo Watford and Reading and reportedly toured the Hornets north London training base last week.
But the former striker, who scored both goals as Milan beat Liverpool in the 2008 Champions League Final, has decided to remain with Milan and will coach the Rossoneri’s under-17 team until at least 2014, according to Football Italia.
Watford’s new boss Gianfranco Zola had been keen to make the poacher a marquee signing at Vicarage Road, while Reading were also thought to have approached Inzaghi about playing in the Premier League.
The former Juventus forward retires as Milan’s top goalscorer ever in European competitions, with 43 strikes and holds the records for the most ever hattricks in the Serie A with ten.
