At the grand old age of 38 and after almost 20 years and hundreds upon hundreds of goals, Pippo Inzaghi has officially retired from football this morning in order to become the new youth team Coach at Milan. It was either that or spend a final year at Watford. We reckon he’s probably made the right choice.

The lasting memory Pies will have of Super Pippo is of a man who played like a child; repeatedly sent into a screaming ecstatic rapture by even the simplest tap-ins, desperately laying claim to matchballs after scoring hat-tricks, a beginner’s grasp on the offside law, etc.

In short, he was a joy to watch because you could just tell that what he was doing meant the world to him.

Arrivederci Pip…

Izaghi only scored two goals at Parma, including one against his hometown club, Piacenza Calcio, which made him cry on the pitch

    When are you guys going to get a new image viewer that doesn’t take forever?

    Super Pippo… btw agree with Stiff, a new image gallery with auto-change option would be most welcome (like every 5secs), mostly when we have many pics to view

    Super Pippo! He mastered the art of being at the right place at the right time…though Ferguson will call it “being born off-sides”. Grazie Pippo!

    Picture #11: the kid is his nephew, son of Simone Inzaghi. Pippo is not married and doesn’t have sons, though he’s a real pussyhunter!
