Inzaghi: I’m failing Berlusconi

The coach has expressed his disappointment at AC Milan’s rotten form but says he will continue to prepare for every game like it’s the Champions League final

AC Milan coach Filippo Inzaghi has admitted that he is failing to repay the faith club president Silvio Berlusconi has shown in him as victories remain a rarity for his team this season.

The Rossoneri have failed to win any of their last four Serie A matches, as their mediocre campaign continues to fizzle out.

Inzaghi has come under a lot of flak for Milan’ sorry showings – despite repeatedly dodging the sack – and, though he is convinced he is not about to be axed, he is aware he’s not living up to expectations.

“I am accustomed to Berlusconi’s presidency and won everything with him,” the former Rossoneri striker told reporters ahead of Thai businessman Bee Taechaubol agreeing a deal to buy a chunk of the Italian club.

“Any decision the president makes will be to get Milan great again. The club has not told me anything about the takeover. I hope to carry on here for another year and a half, though.

“We do feel that we have to prove ourselves and I will prepare every game as if it was the Champions League final.

“I know what Berlusconi and [CEO] Adriano Galliani think of me. I am just disappointed that I cannot repay them with results, especially as they put so much faith in me.”

Milan, who currently sit 10th in the Serie A standings, are back in action at Napoli on Sunday.
