AC Milan have announced the sacking of former-midfielder Clarence Seedorf, just five months after they chose him as the man to replace Massimiliano Allegri.

After a dire start to the Serie A campaign Milan finally made the decision to sack Allegri in January, and made an impulse decision to replace him with former-player, Seedorf.

Despite the Dutchman improving results and the morale around the club Milan officials have decided to sack him and replace him with another former legend.

The job has gone to former striker Filippo Inzaghi, who has signed a two-year deal after agreeing to leave his coaching role on the youth team for a promotion.

When Seedorf took over from Allegri, Milan were 11th in the table and trailing miles behind the likes of Juventus, Roma and Napoli, but managed to win 11 of their 19 games under the Dutchman, and eventually finished eighth, still a whopping 45 points behind eventual champions, Juve.

New manager, Inzaghi, has been at Milan since 2001 and become a legend at the San Siro due to his impressive goal tallies, the hero in the Champions League final of 2007 as he scored a brace against Liverpool to banish memories of a painful defeat two years before to the same side.

After impressive playing careers both Seedorf and Inzaghi left the playing staff in 2012, with the Italian taking a coaching job on the youth squad, and Seedorf playing in Brazil for Botafogo.

Milan are now expected to have a busy summer in the transfer window as they look to bring the glory days back to the San Siro, albeit on a shoestring budget, and it's believed that Inzaghi has been in talks with the club president regarding transfer possibilities for the last few weeks.

The club have already signed defender Alex from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer, and they are reportedly interested in several more players, but face the likelihood of losing star-striker Mario Balotelli, who is wanted by Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea.
