Real Madrid boss Mourinho: AC Milan legend Inzaghi asked for career advice

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has revealed AC Milan legend Pippo Inzaghi asked for advice when considering his coaching career. Inzaghi is now working in the youth system at Milan.

"Inzaghi consulted me and I told him to start at Milan," revealed Real Madrid manager Mourinho.

"If playing at a different level to the ones he was accustomed to would've been unpleasant for him, then he did well to become a Coach straight away.

"Nobody is born a Coach, as it's not something that happens spontaneously. I told him it was better to start in his club so he could then become a tactician at a great level. You become a Coach and to do that you need to gain experience."
