Former footballers are known to continue with the game in the form of coaches and Clarence Seedorf is no exception.
He, along with Ciro Ferrara has been coaching teams in China and they continue to do the same. Seedorf along with Ciro are known to be coached from their former stints as players in teams like Milan and Juventus. However, coaching careers are not without hurdles. For instance, Seedorf and Ciro have been coaches of series A teams. It is definitely a task that is challenging, especially when it comes instilling discipline in the players. As a result, the responsibility comes into the coaching team if the teams are unable to perform well in their games and matches.
It is also important that coaches are given enough time to work with a team.

‘’For sure he is a coach who knows how to pass on his philosophy to his teams. And I think what you have seen that with the Ajax spirit when I played there and that’s Van Gaal.Instead of buying many players you can always fill your first team with your own players who know the club culture, who know the club tactics and have lived for so long that everything for them is natural.He is a great coach and his record speaks for itself.’’ Former Ac.Milan player, Clarence Seedorf said.
