A.C Milan have announced the sacking of their head coach Clarence Seedorf and replaced him with youth coach and fellow former player Filippo Inzaghi as his replacement.

Inzaghi and Seedorf played for Milan together for ten years, from 2002 to 2012, winning two Serie A titles and two Champions Leagues, a trophy that Seedorf is the only player to have won with three different clubs.

Seedorf was put in charge at the start of the year, with Milan floundering in the league, and his appointment was understandably popular with the fans given he legend status at the club.

He won 11 of his 19 league games in charge, but the side finished eighth in Serie A, and a staggering 45 points behind champions Juventus.

Inzaghi has been part of the youth set up at Milan since retiring in 2012, and despite the Milan President recently saying Seedorf was 'part of the club's past', he has seen no problem in giving another legend a two year deal to take charge of the first team.

Seedorf last night took paart in Socceraid, a charity match comprised of former footballing stars and celebrities to raise money for Unicef, and rolled back the years with a hat-trick to give the Rest of the World a 4-2 victory over England.
