AC Milan announced the news yesterday that Sinisa Mihajlovic would be their new manager after they parted ways with Filippo Inzaghi because of a very disappointing 2014/2015 campaign.

AC Milan's Poor Campaign

Milan finished 10th under the former-striker, picking up just 52 points from 38 games, winning only 13 of them in total.

Inzaghi's men finished a staggering 35 points off Serie A champions Juventus and also finished three points behind main rivals Inter.

The disappointing campaign was finalised when officials at the San Siro chose to part ways with Inzaghi, despite his status at the club for his playing days. It didn't take long for the club to hire a replacement, as Mihajlovic was appointed the very same day.

So just who is Sinisa Mihajlovic?

Mihajlovic Factfile And Career

Born back in 1969, the 46-year-old is known for his playing days and also now his managerial days. The Serbian played for seven clubs during his career, spanning from 1986 to 2006. 

He was known as quite a rough footballer and was never afraid of a battle on the pitch. He started his career with Borovo, but moved on to Vojvodina two years later. After spending another two years at that club, Mihajlovic then moved on to Red Star Belgrade, where he also spent just two campaigns before moving to Italy, the country he has stayed in since.

Two years at AS Roma were then followed by four years at Sampdoria, six years at Lazio and then finally two years at Inter Milan before calling it a day in 2006.

Managerial Career

Since retiring, the 46-year-old has had six managerial jobs, including an assistant manager role at Inter after he retired from the game. Bologna, Catania, Fiorentina, Sampdoria and now AC Milan have been the clubs he has managed, whilst he also spent a year as head-coach of the Serbian national team.

Despite not winning anything as a manager, Mihajlovic won 16 trophies throughout his playing days, with the majority coming at Lazio. The Serbian will be looking to win AC Milan's first trophy in four years, with the latest coming in 2011, when they won the Serie A title and also the Supercoppa Italiana.
