With AC Milan enduring what was undoubtedly their worst campaign in recent memory last season, the club took the decision to make drastic changes ahead of 2014-15.
Just like Massimiliano Allegri, Clarence Seedorf failed to arrest the speedy decline of one of European football’s true giants, guiding them to a lowly eighth place in Serie A.
They sacked the retired midfielder just four months after he was appointed, holding the opinion that he had done no better than his predecessor.
Having missed out on Europe for the first time since 1997-98, per Football Italia, the Rossoneri turned to yet another former hero to restore their wounded pride.
Filippo Inzaghi has taken charge, moving over from leading the club’s Primavera (under-19s) to his first ever top-flight role.
He is expected to lean heavily on Milan’s thriving academy, with many of his youth team expected to make the leap along with him.
On the following pages are the five best prospects from the Rossoneri’s youth sector, ranked in order of age. Fans of the club will hope to hear much more from them in the not-too-distant future.
