Pippo Inzaghi sacked from AC Milan, apart from flirting or not with Barbara Berlusconi

Tuesday, 16 June 2015. AC Milan communicates that head coach Filippo “Pippo” Inzaghi has been sacked, without explaining whether flirting with Barbara Berlusconi – AC Milan's owner's daughter and member of board of directors – has been a reason why...

After just one year in charge, Filippo Inzaghi (aka Pippo) has been dismissed by Silvio Berlusconi-owned AC Milan (he was informed a week before the official statement from the club). The handsome-looking former striker of the club was thought to had have an affair with the young and provoking daughter of Silvio Berlusconi, Barbara, but rumours had been dismissed by all the parts (AC Milan included).

Apart from the gossips regarding Inzaghi's love affairs, his record as a manager is rubbish, the Rossoneri – as AC Milan are frequently called – finished the 2014-2015 season in 10th place on Serie A's table, one of the worst results ever. This result alone could justify the divorce from the club.

By the way the 2014-2015 season was the club first season when they did not participate on either UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League, as they failed to qualify during the previous campaign, finishing in 8th place.

During that season the managers were Massimiliano Allegri (sacked during the season, after a heavy campaign against him by Barbara Berlusconi), the caretaker Mauro Tassotti (AC Milan's former defender) and the former AC Milan's midfielder Clarence Seedorf (a guy who apparently had an affair with Ronaldo's wife, when he played for Inter Milan).

Mr Inzaghi has been replaced by former Inter Milan's player (the side is AC Milan's greatest rival), the Serbian footballer Siniša Mihajlović, who was granted a two-year contract with the San Siro's team

People in general and AC Milan's fans in particular wonder whether Mihajlović will also become a target of gossips linking to the young and restless member of the Berlusconi's family, the charming Barbara.
