Pippo Inzaghi is laying down the law at Milan, including a ban on phones, early wake-up calls and strict diets.

The new Coach was known for his commitment to the life of an athlete during his playing days and wants the same discipline from his squad.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inzaghi has set some iron-clad rules during pre-season training.

The players are to wake at 7.45, be in the locker room by 8.15 and start training at 9.00.

There will be fines for turning up late and phones are banned both in the locker rooms and during meals.

Inzaghi was already adamant during his Press conference that a strict diet would be crucial, including snacks of fruit throughout the day.

In his autobiography, Andrea Pirlo revealed Inzaghi was no different as a player, eating the same meal at lunch and dinner every day: a plate of pasta with a spoonful of tomato sauce and some bresaola (very lean salted beef).

Correct me if I'm wrong but, even though a strict set of rules can reap good discipline and results if followed to a tee.

Can't it also backfire and turn the players against you? (ala Seedorf)?

Anyway, hopefully the players are aware of what to expect and are willing to give it time.

I think these are on days when training is scheduled. It only becomes a problem when your leisure time is eaten into.

Yes. Some players have their own (healthy) diets. Being told that you can't do that any more, even though there's nothing wrong with it, would piss a few off I assume. Sportsmen are very habitual creatures.

up at 745 and training at 9 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) I'd throw a fit forsure!


But its the kind of thing thats needed. We've been lacking in professionalism lately. I think guys like essien come here thinking its an easy meal ticket with the family environment and all.


If this all goes well meaning no riots in the dressing room, you'll see a lot of the lazy bums start to plan an exit. Guys like essien will be the first out. We aren't a retirement home and thats the message inzaghi is getting out loud and clear.


And I dont think theyre will be riots, seedorf and inzaghi are two different personalities. Inzaghi seems to be the type that will push you but support you, while seedorf just expects you to perform or gtfo.


Like he said in his press conferences, transfers or not, we'll win with grit and determination. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/devilsmiley.gif)

The Essien part, but I guess this whole conversation is another joke.
