Filippo "Pippo" Inzaghi, Ufficiale OMRI (Italian pronunciation: [fiˈlippo inˈtsaɡi];[1] born 9 August 1973) is a retired Italian professional footballer and a manager.

He played as a striker, and spent the most notable spells of his club career with Juventus and Milan, as well as earning 57 caps for the Italian national team. Inzaghi won the 2006 World Cup, two UEFA Champions League titles (2003, 2007), and three Serie A titles (1998, 2004, 2011). He is one of the most prolific goalscorers of all time, fifth in Italy, with 313 goals scored in official matches. He is currently the fourth-highest goal scorer in European club competitions with 70 goals, behind only Raúl, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. He is also Milan's top international goal scorer in the club's history with 43 goals. He also holds the record for most hat-tricks in Serie A with 10.

Club career[edit]

Inzaghi's favourite footballers as a child were Paolo Rossi and Marco van Basten.[citation needed] The elder brother of fellow footballer Simone Inzaghi, he got his start playing for hometown club Piacenza as a teenager in 1991, but made only two league appearances before being loaned to Serie C1 side Leffe, with whom he scored an impressive 13 goals in 21 matches. In 1993, Inzaghi moved to Serie B club Verona and scored 13 goals in 36 league appearances. Upon his return to Piacenza, he scored 15 times in 37 games helping his team win Serie B and proving himself to be an exciting young prospect.

Inzaghi made his Serie A debut when he transferred to Parma in 1995, but scored only twice in 15 league matches. One of these two goals came against Piacenza, literally "making him cry." He added another two goals in European competition that season. The following season, he moved on to Atalanta, finishing as the Capocannoniere (Serie A's top scorer) with 24 goals, and scored against every team in the league. He was awarded Serie A Young Footballer of the Year and served as team captain in the last game of the season.

Juventus[edit]

Inzaghi, however, was soon on the move once again to his sixth team in seven seasons, this time to Juventus for a reported 23 billion Italian lire.[2] He formed a formidable attacking partnership along with Alessandro Del Piero and Zinedine Zidane, a tandem which would last for four seasons, under managers Marcello Lippi, and subsequently Carlo Ancelotti, marking Inzaghi's longest stint with one team at the time. During his time with the Bianconeri, he scored two Champions League hat-tricks – against Dynamo Kyiv and Hamburger SV – becoming the first player to do so.[3]

During his first season with the club, Inzaghi scored 2 goals as Juventus beat Vicenza 3-0 in the 1997 Supercoppa Italiana.[4] Juventus won the Scudetto during the 1997–98 season, in which Inzaghi scored 18 goals, including a decisive, Scudetto-winning hat-trick against Bologna.[5] He also scored 6 goals to help Juventus reach the Champions League final, although they were defeated 1-0 by Real Madrid.[6]

The 1998-99 season was less successful for Juventus, as they sufferred a defeat in the 1998 Supercoppa Italiana to Lazio, and finished the season with a disappointing seventh place in Serie A. Inzaghi still managed 20 goals in all competitions, finishing the season as the club's top-scorer;[7] 6 of his goals came in the Champions League, as Juventus were eliminated in the semi-finals by eventual champions Manchester United. During the second leg of the semi-finals in Turin, Inzaghi scored two goals in the first ten minutes, but Manchester United eventually managed to come back and win the match 3-2.[8]

Inzaghi helped Juventus win the 1999 UEFA Intertoto Cup, scoring 5 goals in the semi-finals against Rostov, and 2 in the finals against Rennes, qualifying Juventus for the UEFA Cup that season.[9] Inzaghi scored 15 goals in Serie A, as Juventus narrowly missed out on the title to Lazio, suffering a defeat on the final matchday. The following season, Inzaghi managed 11 goals in Serie A, as Juventus finished second in the league for the second consecutive season; he also scored 5 goals in the UEFA Champions League, including a hat-trick against Hamburg,[10] although Juventus were eliminated in the first round. With 16 goals in all competitions, he was Juventus's top goalscorer for the third consecutive season.

Milan[edit]

Despite a very good tally of 89 goals in 165 games for the Bianconeri, Inzaghi was soon benched in favour of David Trezeguet and later signed for Milan[11] for a reported 70 billion Italian Lire,[2] or 45 billion lire cash plus Cristian Zenoni.[12][13][14][15] (Sky Sports reported a smaller total figure, £17 million[16]) for the 2001–02 campaign by coach Fatih Terim. Juventus announced that the sale of Inzaghi produced a net profit of €31 million to the club.[17] Inzaghi, however, suffered a knee injury and missed the first half of the season. Upon his return, he was able to forge a strong goalscoring partnership with Andriy Shevchenko, and he soon racked up an impressive trophy count with the Rossoneri under new manager Carlo Ancelotti, among them the 2002–03 Champions League (in which Milan defeated his previous team, Juventus, in the final on penalties), along with the 2002-03 Coppa Italia, the 2003 UEFA Super Cup, the 2004 Supercoppa Italiana, and the 2003–04 Scudetto. In the 2002–03 Champions League campaign, he scored his record third Champions League hat-trick against Deportivo de La Coruña in the Group Stage and decisive goal in quarter-finals against AFC Ajax, totalling 12 European goals in that season. In November 2004, he signed a contract extension with the club.[18]

Inzaghi was able to fully recover from persistent knee injuries that had dogged him for two years to the extent that he regained his predatory goalscoring form by scoring 12 goals in 22 Serie A matches in 2005–06, along with four goals in five Champions' League appearances; two against Olympique Lyonnais in the quarter-finals and another two against Bayern Munich in the first knockout stage. He scored the decisive goal against the Bavarians in the 2007 quarter-finals, helping Milan to reach the semi-finals of the competition. On 23 May 2007, in the 2007 Champions League final in Athens, he scored both of Milan's goals in their 2–1 victory over Liverpool in a rematch of the 2005 final. He declared after the match:

Inzaghi in action for A.C. Milan in 2007.

At the start of the 2007–08 season, he picked up where he left off in Athens, scoring the equalizer in the Super Cup in Milan's 3–1 victory over Sevilla FC. Inzaghi capped off the year by scoring two goals in the final of the 2007 Club World Cup, helping Milan win 4–2 against Boca Juniors to take revenge for the defeat on penalties in 2003.

On 24 February 2008, Inzaghi scored the match winning goal in Milan's 2–1 win over Palermo with a diving header after coming into the game from the bench; it marked his first Serie A goal in over a year. This was followed by ten more goals in the league, the last against Udinese. This strike against Udinese was his 100th goal for the club in official games. But despite incredible form, Italian national team manager Roberto Donadoni declined to call him for Euro 2008. In November 2008, Inzaghi agreed to a contract extension with Milan until June 2010.[19]

On 8 March 2009, Inzaghi scored his first hat-trick of the season for Milan against Atalanta, leading his team to a 3–0 victory at the San Siro. His 300th career goal came in the 5–1 thrashing of Siena away from home. He then went on to score three goals against Torino, his second professional hat-trick in that season. Scoring this hat-trick enabled "Super Pippo" — his nickname in the media – to set a record for the player with the most hat-tricks in Serie A over the last 25 years. With 10 hat-tricks in Serie A, Inzaghi is ahead of Giuseppe Signori (9), Hernán Crespo (8), Roberto Baggio, Marco van Basten, Gabriel Batistuta, Abel Balbo, Vincenzo Montella (7), Antonio Di Natale, and David Trezeguet (6). Inzaghi scored one hat-trick for Atalanta, four for Juventus, and five for Milan.

In the 2009–10 season, under manager Leonardo, Inzaghi was relegated to the role of backup player with his contract set to expire in June 2010. On 21 May 2010, he was offered a new one-year contract which would last until 30 June 2011.[20]

On 3 November 2010, in the UEFA Champions League 2010–11 Group Stage campaign, with Milan trailing by 1–0 to Real Madrid, Inzaghi came off the bench in the second half and scored a brace to give Milan a 2–1 lead. Pedro León, however, equalized in the 94th minute, with the final score ending 2–2. On that occasion, he became the new all-time top scorer of all European club competitions with 70 goals. He also became the second-oldest player to score in the Champions League, aged 37 years and 85 days, behind only Manchester United's Ryan Giggs, now surpassed by Inzaghi's compatriot Francesco Totti. With these two goals, Inzaghi went ahead of his idol Marco van Basten on the club list of the all-time top goal scorers with 125 goals.

On 10 November 2010, Inzaghi suffered a serious injury while playing for Milan against Palermo. A statement on the official Milan club website confirmed that Inzaghi had suffered a lesion of the anterior cruciate ligament and associated lesion to the external meniscus of the left knee. It was thought he would be out for the rest of the season. Due to his age, this injury could have ended his career; nonetheless, Inzaghi was very optimistic. On 7 May 2011, with Inzaghi still out recovering from his injury, Milan won the 2010-11 Serie A title. He came out from bench for the first time since his injury on 14 May, with Milan defeating Cagliari 4–1. He extended his contract till June 2012 during the 2011–12 pre-season.

Milan decided not to renew the contracts of several of their veteran players and Inzaghi was one of those, along with Clarence Seedorf, Alessandro Nesta, and Gennaro Gattuso.[21] He played his final game for Milan against Novara on 13 May 2012 and marked his performance by scoring the winning goal,[22] much to the joy of the fans. On 24 July 2012, Inzaghi announced his retirement from professional football to start a coaching career.[23]

European competition records[edit]

With 70 goals, Inzaghi is the fourth-highest scorer in European club competitions, behind only Raúl, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi . He became the first player to score two Champions League hat-tricks – both with Juventus — when he netted a treble during a 4–4 group stage draw with Hamburger SV on 13 September 2000; his first was in a 4–1 victory over Dynamo Kyiv during the 1997–98 quarter–finals. Inzaghi scored a record third Champions League hat-trick in a 4–0 win against Deportivo de La Coruña in the 2002–03 season, while playing for Milan. This record would later be tied by Michael Owen, who has scored two hat-tricks for Liverpool and a third for Manchester United.

International career[edit]

Between 1993 and 1996 Inzaghi made 14 appearances for the Italy national under-21 football team, scoring 3 goals; he was also a member of the Italy under-21 squad that won the 1994 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship. Inzaghi earned his first senior cap for Italy in the Tournoi de France, against Brazil on 8 June 1997, under his former under-21 manager Cesare Maldini, and provided an assist to goalscorer Alessandro Del Piero. Italy went on to draw 3–3.[24] He scored his first goal for Italy on 18 November 1998, in a 2-2 friendly draw against Spain;[25] he has since scored 25 goals in 57 appearances.[24] He was called up for the 1998 FIFA World Cup, Euro 2000, the 2002 World Cup, and the 2006 World Cup.

Although Inzaghi went scoreless throughout the 1998 World Cup, as he was mainly deployed as a substitute, he came off the bench to set up a goal for Roberto Baggio in Italy's final group match against Austria, which ended in a 2-1 win, and allowed Italy to top their group;[26] Italy were knocked out in the quarter finals on penalties to hosts and eventual champions France.[27] At Euro 2000, he was one of Italy's starting stikers under the new Italy manager Dino Zoff. He scored two goals throughout the tournament (one from a penalty in Italy's 2-1 opening group win over Turkey,[28] and one in a 2-0 win over Romania in the quarter-finals[29]) to help Italy reach the final, where they were defeated by France once again, on a golden goal.[30] Along with Francesco Totti, he was Italy's top-scorer throughout the tournament.[31]

Under Zoff's replacement, Giovanni Trapattoni, Inzaghi was Italy's top goalscorer during the qualifying rounds of the 2002 World Cup and Euro 2004,[32] but missed the latter due to injury. He went scoreless throughout the 2002 World Cup, making 2 appearances, as Italy were controversially eliminated in the round of 16 to co-hosts South Korea,[33] although he had a goal wrongly disallowed in Italy's final group match against Mexico, which ended in a 1-1 draw.[34]

Inzaghi's persistent knee and ankle injuries put a halt to his international play for almost two years before his resurgence at club level, which resulted in being called up by Italy coach Marcello Lippi for the 2006 World Cup final tournament. Due to the abundance of other top strikers such as Alessandro Del Piero, Francesco Totti, and Luca Toni, Inzaghi made his only appearance – subbing on for Alberto Gilardino — in a group stage match against the Czech Republic on 22 June 2006, scoring his only goal in the tournament, rounding Petr Čech in a one-on-one encounter to net in Italy's second goal, which made him the oldest player to have scored for Italy in a World Cup;[35] Italy went on to win the tournament, defeat France on penalties in the final.[36]

Following Italy's fourth World Cup victory, Inzaghi made six appearances under new manager Roberto Donadoni in Italy's UEFA Euro 2008 qualification campaign, scoring 3 goals, 2 of which came in a 2-1 away win against Faroe Islands on 2 June 2007.[37] He was not called up for the final tournament, however, where Italy were eliminated by eventual champions Spain in the quarter-finals on penalties, and he made his last appearance for Italy on 8 September 2007, in a 0-0 draw against France in Milan.[38]

Inzaghi is currently the sixth-highest goalscorer in the Italian national team's history, with 25 goals, alongside Adolfo Baloncieri and Alessandro Altobelli.[39][24]

Coaching career[edit]

Milan[edit]

Inzaghi started his coaching career at the beginning of the 2012–13 season, signing a two-year deal as the head coach of Milan's Primavera (under-19) team.[40]

On 9 June 2014, Inzaghi was named manager of A.C Milan's first team after the dismissal of his former teammate Clarence Seedorf.[41] In Inzaghi's first match as a manager in Serie A on 31 August, Milan defeated Lazio 3–1 at the San Siro.[42] Inzaghi then lead AC Milan to a second consecutive win in an exciting match that ended with a 5–4 Milan win against Parma.[43] As a manager, Inzaghi has adopted a strategy that is more aggressive than his predecessor Seedorf, and is known for his animated sideline behavior.

On 4 June 2015 Adriano Galliani, CEO of Milan, announced that Inzaghi would not be the coach for next season.[44] It was officially announced on 16 June.

Style of play[edit]

Inzaghi was an intelligent, extremely fast, and opportunistic player, with excellent reactions;[56][57][58][59][60] although not very technically gifted,[61] he was known for great skill in taking advantage of the carelessness of the opponents, his great positional sense, and eye for goal.[61] These qualities, along with his finishing ability with both his head and feet, made him one of the most prolific strikers of the past decades.[60] Inzaghi was described as a player who lived on the offside line.[58][59][62]

When he was first called up to the national team, the other Italian players were surprised at his lack of technical accomplishment, but came to accept him because he scored so frequently.[57] Johan Cruijff grudgingly described this contrast—"Look, actually he can't play football at all. He's just always in the right position."[57] Fans nicknamed him "Super Pippo,"[63] the Italian name for Walt Disney's cartoon character Super Goof. Tactically, Inzaghi was noted for his ability to play off the shoulders of the last defender and to time his attacking runs to beat the offside trap,[57] leading long-time Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson to quip, "That lad must have been born offside."[64]

Although in the past, due to his lack of technical skill, he was initially criticised by some for being a "lucky" player,[56] and for going to ground too easily,[57] he has been praised by several of his former managers and team-mates for his prolific goalscoring;[56][57] Inzaghi and others attribute his success, aside from technical prowess, to personal drive, intelligence, and determination.[57]

Media[edit]

Inzaghi features in EA Sports' FIFA video game series; he was on the cover for the Italian edition of FIFA 2001,[65] and was named in the Ultimate Team Legends in FIFA 14.[66]
