Serie A club AC Milan are set to fire coach Clarence Seedorf after just 19 matches in charge.

The 38-year-old Dutchman, who spent 10 years of his playing career at Milan, took over the reins at the end of January replacing the sacked Massimiliano Allegri.

And although the results improved Milan ended the season a disappointing eighth, missing out on Europa League qualification by one point.

Seedorf was only four months into a two-and-a-half year contract and is now expected to be paid a staggering 10 million euros in compensation.

Youth team coach and another former club hero Filippo Inzaghi is set to take Seedorf’s place at the helm of the first team.

Similar to his former teammate Seedorf, Inzaghi has no previous experience of coaching a senior team.

The 40-year-old – who won the Serie A and Champions League twice in an 11-year spell at Milan – has been in charge of the club’s under 19 team for the last two years.
