AC Milan veteran Pippo Inzaghi admits a coaching career is in his thoughts.

Inzaghi was one of the many players out of contract, but has signed a one-year extension and will likely hang up his boots next summer.

"My motivation to keep on playing comes from the fans, as to hear an entire stadium chanting your name after six months out is worth everything to me. I don't know if I'll fully recover from this injury, but their affection gives me strength.

"I am looking ahead to my career and if I can stay at Milan in some capacity, it would be better. I know that if I wanted to become a Coach next season, I could begin training," he told Radio Uno.
