Who is Filippo Inzaghi?

Filippo Inzaghi, born in Piacenza, 9 August 1973, is an Italian footballer who currently plays for the club AC Milan in Italy. He is a striker and is known to be a penalty-box specialist. One of his greatest achievements in Serie A was during the 1996-1997 season scored 24 goals for the club Atalanta Bergamo and became that season's capocannonieri (top goalscorer).

Super Pippo was then transferred to Juventus in the beginning of the 1997-1998 season and together with Alessandro Del Piero became one of the best goal-scoring partners in Serie A for the next four seasons. In 2001 he transferred to the rossonero, AC Milan and joined another formidable striking partnership with the former Milanista Andriy Shevchenko.

Inzagol recently made a strong come back after a long bout of injury and proves that he still has what it takes to become one of the greatest strikers Italy has ever had. His surprise call-up to the national team for the FIFA World Cup 2006 by former Italy coach Marcello Lippi, who once coached him in Juventus, led to a goal in Italy's group match against the Czech Republic. Despite coming on to the pitch as a substitute, Inzaghi managed to score his first World Cup goal; a special goal considering that it was his 50th national team cap. He is one of highest scoring Italy players, no. 9 with 23 goals in 51 official matches.

After the World Cup 2006, Inzaghi continues to be in form and is currently the main striker for AC Milan alongside his teammate Alberto Gilardino. With 2 more goals scored at European club competition level, Inzaghi has solidified his position as Italy's top goalscorer in European competitions.

In his personal life, he is known as a party boy and playboy, despite being over 30 in age, and has been linked with some of the most popular female Italian celebrities, such as Samantha De Grenet and Ilaria D'Amico. While his teammates started to settle down, Inzaghi is among those footballers who continue to flirt and play around. Be it on the pitch or off the pitch, he is sure to be at the center of attention.

Why a community for Inzaghi?

It's simple: the man needs one. He's rather underappreciated. Some Inzaghi fans tend to regard and judge him for the celebrity that he is, rather than the footballer that he is. This community strives to be a community that appreciates both his achievements as a footballer and also the sensations he created as an Italian footballing celebrity.
