Seedorf to Take up a Coaching Position at AC Milan


Clarence Seedorf, a Dutch veteran, will be taking over the position of coach for AC Milan. It was reported on 7th February 2023 by official sources. He would be replacing their former coach Massimiliano Allegri. The latter had not been able to get AC Milan wins recently. The last loss was in the weekend game they played with Sassuolo.

All this prompted the club to consider Seedorf. The latter, during his playing days, had won many honors for Milan club.

Seedorf has many feathers in his cap from his playing days. For instance, he won the Champions League with clubs such as Milan, Real Madrid, and Ajax. Also, he spent the last 18 months with a Rio-based club Botafogo. He was also looking for a challenge and this opportunity is right for him. He states that now that he is stopping to play, after 22 years, it is a new opportunity to coach a club he played with. Hence he will be returning to Italy on a contract that spans two and a half year.

Seedorf also talked about how his experience at Botafogo has prepared him to move into a coaching position. He was approached by the chairman of AC Milan and he found it hard to say no. It also made him decide to give up his playing career. He also admits that the transition from the pitch to the dugout would be a novel experience. It would also mean that he would be in charge of some players who were his former teammates. It also gives him a chance to go back to a favored club. He had been a player for Rossoneri at San Siro. Also, Seedorf was a figurehead since he had made about 400 appearances, and won Serie A titles and crowns in the Champions League.
