Soccer-Mihajlovic can leave Sampdoria if he wants, says president
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
Sampdoria coach Massimo Ferrero has had enough of talking about the future of coach Sinisa Mihajlovic and said that the fiery Serb is free to leave if he wants. "Nobody has understood anything in relation to Mihajlovic, and that includes me, to be honest," Ferrero told Sky Sports Italia on Thursday. I've had enough, there's been enough talk of Mihajlovic." Mihajlovic, who has said on several occasions that he has not decided what he will do next season, has transformed the side since he took over 18 months ago. There has been some speculation that Mihajlovic could coach Napoli next season should Rafael Benitez leave the club, or AC Milan where Filippo Inzaghi's future is in doubt.

Slumping Milan look to dent Roma's Euro push
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
AC Milan, at the centre of takeover uncertainty and with coach Filippo Inzaghi unlikely to survive until next season, can have a hand in the Champions League shake-up when they face Roma on Saturday. The 18-time Serie A champions and winners of the European Cup on seven occasions are marooned in mid-table with just 43 points, a huge 36 behind Juventus who wrapped up the title last weekend. They go into their home clash with second-placed Roma on the back of three straight defeats and a winless run of five matches. To make matters worse, they will be without top scorer Jeremy Menez who is injured and defender Mattia De Sciglio who was red-carded after just 50 seconds into his side's clash with Napoli last Sunday -- the fastest sending-off in Serie A this season.

Chocolate eggs for AC Milan as Mancini cancels Easter
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
AC Milan are facing "nine finals" as they look to salvage another poor season with qualification for the Europa League as city rivals Inter reacted to their increasing dire straits by cancelling Sunday's Easter holiday. A 2-1 win at Palermo on Saturday was AC Milan's second victory on the trot, and first away win since October as Inter's winless streak stretched to five games after a morale-sapping 1-1 draw at home to crisis-hit basement side Parma. Come what may, embattled AC Milan coach Filippo Inzaghi looks increasingly likely to be replaced come the end of the campaign, according to pundits in Italy.

Pressure on Inzaghi as Juve look to tighten lead
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
The coaching future of former AC Milan star Filippo Inzaghi could hinge on the ailing Italian giants' home fixture with Verona on Saturday, as Juventus look to tighten their grip at the top of Serie A. Two days before Juventus host Sassuolo looking to reinforce their nine-point lead over Roma - in action away to Chievo on Sunday - Milan host Andrea Mandorlini's visitors in full crisis mode. Despite avoiding defeat in their past two games, a win against relegation-threatened Cesena and a scoreless draw last week away to Chievo have done little to appease Milan's detractors.

  • 2007
    Age 33
    He was not called up for the final tournament, however, where Italy were eliminated by eventual champions Spain in the quarter-finals on penalties, and he made his last appearance for Italy on 8 September 2007, in a 0–0 draw against France in Milan.
    More Details Hide Details Inzaghi is currently the sixth-highest goalscorer in the Italian national team's history, with 25 goals, alongside Adolfo Baloncieri and Alessandro Altobelli. Inzaghi was an intelligent, extremely fast, and opportunistic player, with excellent reactions; although not very technically gifted, he was known for great skill in taking advantage of the carelessness of the opponents, his great positional sense, and eye for goal. These qualities, along with his finishing ability with both his head and feet, made him one of the most prolific strikers of the past decades. Inzaghi was described as a player who lived on the offside line. When he was first called up to the national team, the other Italian players were surprised at his lack of technical accomplishment, but came to accept him because he scored so frequently. Johan Cruijff grudgingly described this contrast—"Look, actually he can't play football at all. He's just always in the right position." Fans nicknamed him "Super Pippo," the Italian name for Walt Disney's cartoon character Super Goof. Tactically, Inzaghi was noted for his ability to play off the shoulders of the last defender and to time his attacking runs to beat the offside trap, leading long-time Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson to quip, "That lad must have been born offside."
    Inzaghi capped off the year by scoring two goals in the final of the 2007 Club World Cup, helping Milan win 4–2 against Boca Juniors to take revenge for the defeat on penalties in 2003.
    More Details Hide Details

    On 23 May 2007, in the 2007 Champions League final in Athens, he scored both of Milan's goals in their 2–1 victory over Liverpool in a rematch of the 2005 final.
    More Details Hide Details He declared after the match: It's a dream since I was a child to score twice in the final, and the ones I scored yesterday evening were the most important in my life. It was an unforgettable game.
    He scored the decisive goal against the Bavarians in the 2007 quarter-finals, helping Milan to reach the semi-finals of the competition.

  • 2005
    Age 31
    Inzaghi was able to fully recover from persistent knee injuries that had dogged him for two years to the extent that he regained his predatory goalscoring form by scoring 12 goals in 22 Serie A matches in 2005–06, along with four goals in five Champions' League appearances; two against Olympique Lyonnais in the quarter-finals and another two against Bayern Munich in the first knockout stage.

  • 2002
    Age 28
    He went scoreless throughout the 2002 World Cup, making two appearances, as Italy were controversially eliminated in the round of 16 to co-hosts South Korea, although he had a goal wrongly disallowed in Italy's final group match against Mexico, which ended in a 1–1 draw.
    More Details Hide Details Inzaghi's persistent knee and ankle injuries put a halt to his international play for almost two years before his resurgence at club level, which resulted in being called up by Italy coach Marcello Lippi for the 2006 World Cup final tournament. Due to the abundance of other top strikers such as Alessandro Del Piero, Francesco Totti and Luca Toni, Inzaghi made his only appearance – subbing on for Alberto Gilardino — in a group stage match against the Czech Republic on 22 June 2006, scoring his only goal in the tournament, rounding Petr Čech in a one-on-one encounter to net in Italy's second goal, which made him the oldest player to have scored for Italy in a World Cup, after Daniele Massaro. Italy went on to win the tournament, defeating France on penalties in the final. Following Italy's fourth World Cup victory, Inzaghi made six appearances under new manager Roberto Donadoni in Italy's UEFA Euro 2008 qualification campaign, scoring three goals, two of which came in a 2–1 away win against the Faroe Islands on 2 June 2007.
    Inzaghi scored a record third Champions League hat-trick in a 4–0 win against Deportivo de La Coruña in the 2002–03 season, while playing for Milan.
    More Details Hide Details This record would later be tied by Michael Owen, who has scored two hat-tricks for Liverpool and a third for Manchester United. Between 1993 and 1996, Inzaghi made 14 appearances for the Italy under-21 team, scoring three goals; he was also a member of the Italy under-21 squad that won the 1994 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship. Inzaghi earned his first senior cap for Italy in the Tournoi de France, against Brazil on 8 June 1997, under his former under-21 manager Cesare Maldini, and provided an assist to goalscorer Alessandro Del Piero. Italy went on to draw 3–3. He scored his first goal for Italy on 18 November 1998, in a 2–2 friendly draw against Spain; he has since scored 25 goals in 57 appearances. He was called up for the 1998 FIFA World Cup, Euro 2000, the 2002 World Cup and the 2006 World Cup.
    In the 2002–03 Champions League campaign, he scored his record third Champions League hat-trick against Deportivo de La Coruña in the Group Stage and a decisive goal in quarter-finals against Ajax, totalling 12 European goals in that season.
    More Details Hide Details
    Upon his return, he was able to forge a strong goalscoring partnership with Andriy Shevchenko, and he soon racked up an impressive trophy count with the Rossoneri under new manager Carlo Ancelotti, among them the 2002–03 Champions League (in which Milan defeated his previous team, Juventus, in the final on penalties), along with the 2002–03 Coppa Italia (scoring in a 2–2 draw in the second leg), the 2003 UEFA Super Cup, the 2004 Supercoppa Italiana, and the 2003–04 Scudetto.

  • 2001
    Age 27
    Despite a very good tally of 89 goals in 165 games for the Bianconeri, Inzaghi was soon benched in favour of David Trezeguet and later signed for Milan for a reported 70 billion lire, or 45 billion lire cash plus Cristian Zenoni. (Sky Sports reported a smaller total figure, £17 million) for the 2001–02 campaign by coach Fatih Terim.
    More Details Hide Details Juventus announced that the sale of Inzaghi produced a net profit of €31 million to the club. Inzaghi, however, suffered a knee injury and missed the first half of the season.
  • 2000
    Age 26
    He became the first player to score two Champions League hat-tricks – both with Juventus — when he netted a treble during a 4–4 group stage draw with Hamburger SV on 13 September 2000; his first was in a 4–1 victory over Dynamo Kyiv during the 1997–98 quarter–finals.

    Inzaghi helped Juventus win the 1999 UEFA Intertoto Cup, scoring five goals in the semi-finals against Rostov, and two in the finals against Rennes, qualifying Juventus for the UEFA Cup that season.
    More Details Hide Details Inzaghi scored 15 goals in Serie A as Juventus narrowly missed out on the title to Lazio, suffering a defeat on the final matchday. The following season, Inzaghi managed 11 goals in Serie A as Juventus finished second in the league for the second consecutive season; he also scored five goals in the UEFA Champions League, including a hat-trick in a 4–4 draw against Hamburger SV, although Juventus were eliminated in the first round. With 16 goals in all competitions, he was Juventus' top goalscorer for the third consecutive season.
  • 1997
    Age 23
    Juventus won the Scudetto during the 1997–98 season, in which Inzaghi scored 18 goals, including a decisive, Scudetto-winning hat-trick against Bologna.
    More Details Hide Details He also scored six goals to help Juventus reach the Champions League final, although they were defeated 1–0 by Real Madrid. The 1998–99 season was less successful for Juventus, as they suffered a defeat in the 1998 Supercoppa Italiana to Lazio, and finished the season with a disappointing seventh place in Serie A. Inzaghi still managed 20 goals in all competitions, finishing the season as the club's top-scorer; Six of his goals came in the Champions League, as Juventus were eliminated in the semi-finals by eventual champions Manchester United. During the second leg of the semi-finals in Turin, Inzaghi scored two goals in the first ten minutes, but Manchester United eventually managed to come back and win the match 3–2.
    During his first season with the club, Inzaghi scored two goals as Juventus beat Vicenza 3–0 in the 1997 Supercoppa Italiana.

He was awarded Serie A Young Footballer of the Year and served as team captain in the last game of the season. Inzaghi, however, was soon on the move once again to his sixth team in seven seasons, this time to Juventus for a reported 23 billion lire. He formed a formidable attacking partnership along with Alessandro Del Piero and Zinedine Zidane, a tandem which would last for four seasons, under managers Marcello Lippi, and subsequently Carlo Ancelotti, marking Inzaghi's longest stint with one team at the time. During his time with the Bianconeri, he scored two Champions League hat-tricks – against Dynamo Kyiv and Hamburger SV – becoming the first player to do so.
