AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf is one of the veterans of the prestigious Champions League competition. He has won the famous competition three times with three different clubs during his career. He is now in the final stages of this career, but the former Real Madrid and Ajax star has said that he still wants to win the competition even more than he used to.

AC Milan will be facing English club Arsenal in the last 16 of the Champions League. AC Milan and Arsenal have been adjudged to have the worst tie in the entire last 16 matches given that both teams have a lot of good players. It is one of the reasons for Clarence Seedorf to consider the competition as being unique.

Due to the incredible experience AC Milan possess, they are the undoubted favourites to win against Arsenal. However, Clarence Seedorf has once again stressed the fact that there are no favourites when it comes to the Champions League because it is the competition that has many good teams and Arsenal is one of them. Due to the fact that Arsenal do not have a chance to win the Premier league title this season, they will be focusing their entire efforts on qualifying for the next seasons Champions League and also doing well in the current version as well.

“Every year, Arsenal take part in the Champions League to win it. They have the right combination of young and experienced players. They are one of the sides to beat. Winning the Champions League is a joy than can be compared to the birth of a child,” Seedorf told Sky Sports. The 35-year-old Dutch midfielder has won the Champions League title with Ajax, Real Madrid, and AC Milan. He will become the first ever player to win it four times during a career if he lifts the trophy this time around.
