FILIPPO INZAGHI is the next coach of Milan and the former defender Tassotti will most likely to be right-hand man.
Inzaghi will be officially named coach in the next few days and today he had a meeting at Casa Milan with Adriano Galliani and his agent Tullio Tinti and they talked about Pippo’s contract which will be signed after Milan resolve Seedorf’s deal.
Clarence will be sacked after just four months and Milan will look to negotiate his severance package as they don’t want to pay him €10 million until his finds his next job. They’re already paying Allegri who was replaced by Seedorf in January.
Allegri was assisted by Tassotti during his tenure at Milan and there were reports that Tassotti has promised Massimiliano that he will follow him to his next club but with Seedorf leaving (there was not much love between them) he seems to have changed his mind and is set to stay. Gianluca Di Marzio wrote on his website that Tassotti, 54, “has no ties with Allegri”.
Filippo Galli, who is the Head of the Youth Sector, was offered the role of the assistant but he doesn’t want the job. Galliani was planning on bringing Arrigo Sacchi to replace Galli but that’s of course on hold since the 51-year-old former right back wants to retain his position. The staff of Inzaghi, who will reportedly be paid €700k a season as the head coach (Seedorf’s contract is worth €2.5 mil a year), will possibly consist of Tassotti, Beniamino Abate, Andrea Maldera and Nicola Matteucci.
Abate, the father of Ignazio, would be the goalkeepers coach while Maldera, who worked for Allegri, would be involved in the tactical side and Matteucci would be in charge of scouting the opponents. Abate & Matteucci worked at Inzaghi’s Primavera.
