Seedorf Expected to Step Down

AC Milan manager Clarence Seedorf has stated that his future at the club will become clear at the end of the season. Seedorf was appointed as the replacement for Massimiliano Allegri a few months ago, but results have failed to improve even after the Dutchman came to the club. Seedorf was given the ultimatum of securing Europa league football at the end of the season, but Milan failed to do that as well after a 2-1 defeat against Atalanta during the weekend.

As result, the club will be without any form of European competition for next season, which will be a huge blow to their finances. As a result of this failure, it has been speculated that Seedorf will step down from his post at the end of the season. The club are preparing the former striker Filippo Inzaghi to become their new manager according to rumours. Former club midfielder, Seedorf, though, has reacted to the speculation by saying that one should ask owner Berlusconi in order to get news about his future.

Seedorf announced his retirement from playing football back in January 2014 in order to take over as the manager of Milan. His time at the club has been overseen by inconsistent results throughout his regime.

“You’d have to ask the club. That isn’t a question for me. [Silvio] Berlusconi’s words from yesterday? I don’t have anything to say as I didn’t understand them well. Everyone can give their personal interpretation and I can say that I only thought about the squad because it is easy to deal with this group. The players are used to these things. They are professionals and therefore they give their best through their work. They give 100% and the results are proof of that,” said Seedorf.
Milan are set to finish lower than fifth in the table.
