AC Milan's new manager Filippo Inzaghi has thanked the club for their show of faith and has vowed to give his all to repay the former European champions.

The 40-year-old was announced the new man in charge at the San Siro after the sacking of former manager Clarence Seedorf yesterday.

The Italian, who was previously in charge of the AC Milan Under-19 team is well accustomed to the culture at the club and is expected to be well accepted by the players and the supporters.

“I am delighted. Today is unforgettable", Inzaghi told his club's official site.


"I thank President Berlusconi and all the club for the faith shown in me and the prestigious professional opportunity they have offered me.

"I am honoured and proud to be the coach of team that I had played for so many years.

"I will give my all for this shirt, with dedication, passion and determination.

"Like I always did on the pitch as a player and as a coach in the youth academy."

The former striker has signed a two-year deal with the Italian giants that will keep him at the club until 2016.
