AC Milan manager Filippo Inzaghi will be sacked this week after just a year in charge.

The Serie A side told BBC Sport that Inzaghi, 41, will "not be in charge of the team next season".

The Rossoneri finished 10th in the league this season as they failed to qualify for the Champions League.

Carlo Ancelotti has turned down the chance to return to his former club while ex-Sampdoria boss Sinisa Mihajlovic is favourite for the job.

Milan said they were still "looking to find a new coach" and an official announcement is expected on Friday.

Mihajlovic, 46, said on Monday that he was leaving Sampdoria after guiding the Genoa club to seventh, with former goalkeeper Walter Zenga reported to be in talks to take over.

Ancelotti, 55, who was sacked by Real Madrid, had held talks with Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani but said he needed a "rest" after two seasons in charge at the Bernabeu.

Under former Italy striker Inzaghi, Milan had their worst league finish in 17 years.
