Filippo Inzaghi has retired from football, taking a job with Allievi Nazionali, a section of AC Milan's youth academy.

Filippo Inzaghi has officially retired from football, accepting a coaching position with the youth academy of AC Milan. Super Pippo, aged 38, started his football career at Piacenza before moving on to Parma, Atalanta, and Juventus. It's the rossoneri stripes that most remember him in, however, as he spent 12 seasons with Milan. Inzaghi won the Coppa Italia once and the Champions League twice with Milan, also earning three scudetti -- two with the rossoneri and one with Juventus. He was also on Italy's World Cup-winning squad of 2006.

A recitation of the honors earned by Pippo won't be enough to adequately convey and celebrate his time in Italian football (that's what YouTube is for). Alas, all good things must come to an end. Inzaghi's contract ran out in June, and despite other offers from around the world, he decided to accept the job of coaching Allievi Nazionali, the youngest section of Milan's youth academy.

We all look forward to seeing whether his subjects manage to stay onside.
