[After hitting the milestone] I will continue [my career] until my fitness will no longer be the same. I don’t see too many great strikers around

[AC Milan striker Filippo Inzaghi has admitted that everyone at the club will miss Andrea Pirlo, who announced on Wednesday that he will no longer play for them] Everyone knows what Andrea has given to this club and we will all miss him, but this is life and we must accept these things. I wish him the best and appreciate Andrea as a player and a man. He will never feel like an opponent

I am happy, as it’s a dream to end my career at Milan. I don’t think there were any alternatives, as what happened the other day at San Siro was worth so much

Everyone came together to make this dream come true of staying for another year. It’s wonderful that there wasn’t the slightest doubt, because we are united as men first and foremost

[Filippo Inzaghi on Carlo Ancelotti] Carlo Ancelotti was uncertain whether or not to play me or Alberto Gilardino in the Athens final, but I played and scored twice. Then I scored in the Super Cup final win over Sevilla and another two against Boca Juniors. Five goals in three finals, which were three of the most important finals, and we won all of them. Not even Messi or Ronaldo will achieve that. It’s a record I will hang on to

[Pippo Inzaghi on Jeremy Menez] Adriano Galliani had the idea of signing him, so I met him in Ibiza. He seduced me in five minutes. I realised that I was faced with a lad who was very open, kind and professional. What he has since done on the pitch proves I was right. His approach is perfect. I intend to marry him!

[Filippo Inzaghi says Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back at AC Milan to challenge himself] They’ve done well. He was needed. I played with him and I respect him a lot. He doesn’t need money or glory. If he’s back, it means that he believes he can make a mark. It seems to me that he has already shown this during his first games. Even during his debut, his weight was noticed

[Waking a sleeping giant from its slumber is proving difficult] It’s bad, but unfortunately it’s nothing new. But I know Paolo Maldini and I trust him. I am sure that Paolo and Zvonimir Boban will get the club out of this situation. You have to reset, insert two or three of the right players every year and, above all, be patient. And you will need continuity in the management of the club

[Former AC Milan striker Filippo Inzaghi suspects Ibrahimovic is exactly what the club was in need] They’ve done well. He was needed. I played with him and I respect him a lot. He doesn’t need money or glory. If he’s back, it means that he believes he can make a mark. It seems to me that he has already shown this during his first games.

[Filippo Inzaghi wants coronavirus-affected Italian season to be completed] Talking about football is difficult. We have all taken a step back for our health, which is the highest priority. By the time everything ends, we want to start playing again - it would be the right thing. We all want to finish what we started eight months ago, and the championships must be finished. It would be the best solution to avoid misunderstandings and prevent someone from being damaged. We are ready to play in June, July and August: we want to end this championship, any other decision will penalise someone. We will go to the courts, some clubs will disappear, so football could risk losing two years, not two months

[Filippo Inzaghi has guided Benevento to 21 victories in 28 games so far this season, while brother Simone Inzaghi is enjoying a successful campaign in the top tier with Lazio] He is better than me in everything. I can only learn from Simone: he is a modern coach and seeing his Lazio side is a spectacle

[Asked to name a player similar to himself] I don’t like making comparisons, but I say that Immobile is the best Italian player. He always scores, always decisive. He is the centre-forward that I like best

[Former AC Milan and Bologna boss Inzaghi took over 12 months ago and will re-join his brother and Lazio coach Simone in Italy’s top flight next term] He is better than me in everything. I can only learn from Simone: he is a modern coach and seeing his Lazio side is a spectacle

[Prior to claiming his latest success with Benevento, Inzaghi called for fans to avoid gathering with the coronavirus pandemic still ongoing and instead suggested they flock to their balconies] We won’t gather because the virus is still active even if we are far away from it. We would give a very nice sign, truly incredible, if the whole city would decorate their balconies, windows, terraces and welcome the players, the technical staff and managers.Those who live in the alleys and not on the main street can be accommodated on the balcony or the terraces of a neighbour. I hope everything goes well
