Former AC Milan midfielder Cristian Brocchi has returned to the club as a youth coach.

Brocchi has ended his playing days and will take charge of the Rossoneri Allievi in the new campaign.

"I'm very happy with the opportunity which I have been given to start down this path," Brocchi told Sky Sport Italia.

"However, there is no certainty that a playing past will see you transform into a good Coach."
