Even though AC Milan have already announced their plans to search for a new manager on June 4th when they told the press that Filippo Inzaghi was not going to continue with the team, it is now official. The San Siro outfit released an statement saying the former Italy striker will no longer manage the team.
The former Lazio and Rossoneri forward spent several years coaching the AC Milan Primavera side and was promoted for the 2014-15 campaign, but the results didn't go their way and the management have decided to cut ties with him even though the 41-year-old still had two more years left on his current contract.
Milan didn't go out of their way and they released an official statement where they praised Inzaghi "for all the hard work throughout the season" but at the same time, they "acknowledged that a change was needed to improve the current state of the team."
Sinisa Mijahlovic will replace Inzaghi
On the same note, Milan have already announced that Sinisa Mijahlovic will take control of the team. The former Serbian defender spent most of his career in the Serie A and the played for AS Roma, Sampdoria, Lazio and Inter Milan, amongst others. His managerial experience also features a lot of Italy-based teams as he has had stints with Catania, Fiorentina and Sampdoria as well as the Serbian National Team between 2012 and 2013.
Milan released a statement to announce the arrival of the 46-year-old manager that, "Mijahlovic will be the team's new manager next season and both the society and the club wish him the best of luck and a lot of success."
Milan have been quite active in the transfer market already, and they have been linked with a lot of players including Alex, Miranda and Stefan Savic. WIth the confirmed arrival of Mijahlovic, the rumors are only expected to continue as Milan will try to improve over a disastrous Serie A season where they finished in 10th place.
