Ever since the season finished, rumors and speculation has been building up concerning who will be the coach of Ac.Milan in the next campaign as Clarence Seedorf took charge of the Italian team when Massimiliano Allegri was sacked and removed from his position in the club and even though the Dutchman did fairly well, reports are linking Filippo Inzaghi as the man to take up the hot seat.
Inzaghi stated that he is focused on his current task at hand as he is the coach of the youth team of Ac.Milan but that if he is given the chance on managing the main team, he would be more than happy to do it.
“I’m here at the Vismara training ground because I am the coach of the Primavera youth team, I have a contract with the club until June 2016, and I haven’t been notified of anything. Of course, it gives me a lot of emotion to read what has been reported in recent days. I am at the club’s disposal. I have had no other communications about it until now, other than what has been written. I am a Milan employee. Of course, if Milan call and ask me to fulfill another role I will be very happy, but if not I will remain to coach the Primavera as I have always done.” Inzaghi revealed.
Seedorf has a contract with Ac.Milan which expires in 2 years but that does not secure his position with the Italian club for the upcoming season as anything can change at any minute.
It would be a good decision for the board members of Ac.Milan to publicly announced whether or not Clarence Seedorf will remain in charge of the squad for the next season as this will give the Dutchman time to prepare the team for the upcoming campaign as other teams are busy and active in the transfer market, Ac.Milan cannot afford to stay quiet in the transfer window while others are improving their squads.

England manager Roy Hodgson has suggested that his team will be more wary of the threat posed by Andrea Pirlo rather than Mario Balotelli. England will be coming up against 2006 World Cup in Italy in the group stages of the World Cup 2014. Uruguay and Costa Rica are the other opponents for England.
Hence, they need to be at their best in order to progress past the group stages. Balotelli has been in impeccable form for the national team over the last few years. Cesare Prandelli has been able to get the best out of him. Continue reading →
Arsene Wenger has stated that he feels that the win over Wigan Athletic in this FA Cup semifinals could prove to be the turning point of the season for the club. Since they are coming up against a Championship club in the semifinals, Arsenal were overwhelming favourites to register a win and progress to the FA Cup finals, which was also the last trophy that the club lifted back in 2005. However, Wigan have come into this position after having beaten big clubs like Manchester City along the way and they proved that they are able to compete with the best.
Jordi Gomez scored a penalty in the second half to get Wigan a lead in the match. For long periods of the match, it looked like this advantage would be enough to see Wigan in the second consecutive FA Cup final. They were holders of the competition, but Arsenal came back into the encounter following a goal from Per Mertesacker in the 80th minute. They then went on to win the match 4-2 on penalties, which puts them in the finals against Hull City. Following this match, the club also managed to go on and register a 3-1 win over West Ham in the Premier League.
Wenger says that this win could be the turning point of the season.
“There was a lot at stake for us. You know how it is today in football. Had we gone out of course we would have been tremendously questioned and I knew it was a turning point of our season. To go out on Saturday would have been very difficult. But we have shown resilience and nerves, and that is an important quality at the top level. It means a lot for the club, and I want to win,” said Wenger.
