The ex-striker, who is a legend at Milan, has been sacked after overseeing a disappointing season at the San Siro.

The 41-year-old featured as a player for 11 seasons at the fallen giants of Italian football, moving from Juventus in 2001 and departing on his retirement in 2012.

He took over the top job at the club in 2014, having previously managed Milan’s U19 team, but was unable to bring success back to Lombardy.

The Rossoneri slumped to a 10th-place finish in the Italian top flight last season, and won fewer matches than they have done for any campaign over the last 15 years.

Inzaghi took the top job at Milan in June 2014, replacing former teammate Clarence Seedorf—another legend at the club.

During his time at the club as a player, he won two Serie A titles, two Champions Leagues, and a whole host of other domestic honours.
