AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri has paid tribute to retiring striker Pippo Inzaghi.

Inzaghi scored in his final appearance for the club at the weekend.

“Inzaghi has once again demonstrated his professionalism and above all I think he had a great chance to close his Milan spell, and I don’t know, maybe his career, in the best way possible," said Allegri.

“It was a beautiful gift, among other things it was a beautiful goal. Although this year he has had some injuries, he has a quality that is difficult to find in all other strikers in Italy and Europe.

“It is normal that when one is a player that you want to feel important, that you always want to play, and forever. On the other hand, there is a Coach who is always a b*****d, who has to make choices.

“I thanked Inzaghi as I thanked everyone who played their last game for Milan, for what they gave me during these two years and because they helped me in the first year win the Scudetto.”
