Galliani Admits Inzaghi Could Leave In January

AC Milan striker Filippo Inzaghi could be on his way out of the San Siro according to Milan Vice President Adriano Galliani. The 38 year old veteran striker has failed to make an impact in Allegri’s squad this season and with the impending arrival of Carlos Tevez next month, Inzaghi’s chances of playing look dimmer and dimmer.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Galliani was quoted as saying that Inzaghi may have to move to another club if he wanted to achieve his dream of becoming the all time leading goal scorer in Europe.

“Pippo Inzaghi’s dream is to set the record for European goals,” Galliani said.

“He will try to do this with Milan, or possibly another club in the Europa League.”

Personally, i feel that letting Inzaghi go would be like stabbing him in the back after all that he has done for the club. However, when you look at the choices Allegri has for strikers upfront, you start to get a clear picture of Inzaghi’s predicament.

With Ibrahimovic, Pato, Robinho, Cassano and possibly Tevez at your disposal, Inzaghi does not stand a chance of starting let alone coming on as a substitute. This has led to him considering moving in January.

A likely destination for Inzaghi could be Serie A new boys Novara. Novara are currently 17th in the league and for their coach Attilio Tesser, signing Inzaghi would be a dream come true for him.

When asked about Inzaghi being linked with his club, this is what he had to say.

“It would be a great feeling to coach Inzaghi,” he said.

“He is a player that any coach would like [in their squad].

“I know he is a great professional and it would be nice – it’s a dream, but it’s also one of many [other clubs]. I’ve said it publicly that if it were possible, we would be interested.”

Inzaghi has made only 3 appearances for the Milan this season and it looks less likely that he would feature anymore for Milan for the remainder of the season. To make it worse for him, his contract is set to run out next summer and there has been no talk of a renewal.

That said, Inzaghi will go down as one of Milan’s greatest strikers and an all time Italian and world legend.
