Perhaps the choice of Filippo Inzaghi as their new manager is a testament to how Silvio Berlusconi's AC Milan are feeling right now.
Berlusconi has just sacked a manager that he chose (although Galliani wanted otherwise) and must continue to pay him over the next two years just to elect a new incognito as a manager. But the choice of Inzaghi says more than that.
The bigger names were probably not interested enough. Choosing Inzaghi is to go the easier route. A trainer who feels selected even though he has not really have "earned" it, he can be treated differently than people would if they had more experience.
But Inzaghi as a manager? From what has been seen of AC Milan's Primavera team, there has not been anything to write home about just yet. They played a classic Italian game without any major tactical surprises. Do not expect any miracles. For as long as Pippo Inzaghi is an incognito on the big stage, he will feel like a mediocre coach.
Just imagine that he will play with a 4-3-3 system (perhaps with Taarabt-Balotelli-El Shaarawy) or 4-3-1-2 (with Kaka behind Pazzini and Balotelli). He would probably even give a chance for some younger players such as Cristante.
But it will be difficult to build a new team with no money no matter if your name is Pippo Inzagho, Massimo Allegri, Clarence Seedorf or Unai Emery. AC Milan will now try to start a new era again. With Inzaghi as a manager.
But the question is whether one can really start a new era with Berlusconi as owner?
