Pippo Inzaghi will lose his job as AC Milan manager if the club fail to beat Verona at the San Siro on Saturday, according to a report by Goal.
The club turned to their former striker after parting ways with another old boy in the form of Clarence Seedorf.
But Inzaghi has done no better than Seedorf and it’s probably fair to say that there is too much work to be done at the club for a managerial novice to cope with.
A fallen giant of European football, Milan are languishing in mid-table in Serie A. They sit in tenth place and have only won two of their last eight games.
A poor brand of football is part of the reason for Inzaghi’s precarious position.
Milan started the season brightly but lost that spark very quickly and they’re struggling to score goals. Jeremy Menez has been one of the few success stories at the club but the plight of Fernando Torres during his brief spell in Italy highlights the lack of quality in attack.
A number of managers are being linked with the job, including Vincenzo Montella, Luciano Spalletti and Jurgen Klopp. Seedorf is also said to be on the shortlist with his sacking looking increasingly shortsighted in hindsight.
