Milan - AC Milan has fired coach Filippo Inzaghi in a widely expected move, clearing the way for Sinisa Mihajlovic to be named as his successor.

Milan says that with "great displeasure" it informed Inzaghi of the move Thursday.

In his first season in charge, Inzaghi led Milan to a dismal 10th-place finish.

Still, having been a standout player for Milan, Inzaghi commands respect within the club.

Mihajlovic met with Milan president Silvio Berlusconi late Wednesday and an announcement on his appointment could come by the end of the week.

Mihajlovic announced on Monday that he was stepping down at Sampdoria after guiding the Genoa club to seventh.

Former Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti, who was recently fired by Real Madrid, rejected offers to return to the Rossoneri.
