Clarence Seedorf Is A Coach In Demand

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 instance, two or more years are required for a current coaching team to show results through performances in the teams. Clarence definitely had a difficult experience trying to bring the series A team under control, but it definitely was a learning experience for him. Hence he is now coaching series B team in china.

Former Dutch international Clarence Seedorf has said that he thinks that star striker Robin van Persie takes up too much responsibility when it comes to the international team. Robin van Persie has had an extraordinary season with Arsenal after he has scored more than 40 goals for both club and country in all competitions, according to the Arsenal news website.

As a result, much was expected from him at the Euro 2012. However, he has so far failed to live up to the expectations. The Netherlands have gone two matches without a win in the group stages of the Euro 2012, which has put their chances of qualification to the quarter finals in jeopardy.

Only a little chance exists for the Dutch to still qualify for the quarter-finals of the competition. The 1-0 shock loss at the hands of Denmark and the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Germany in the second match has all but eliminated them from the competition.

However, in both the matches, the Dutch had excellent chances to score and win the match. Robin van Persie has been guilty of missing many chances in both the matches. AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf reckons that Robin van Persie has not been able to deliver for the Dutch at the Euro 2012 due to the fact that he has put more responsibility upon himself.

“It happened to Van Persie at the 2010 World Cup. He takes on the responsibility, maybe too much – a bit like Fernando Torres at Chelsea. He should be flying after a season like he has had with Arsenal. He’s not relaxed enough. When he plays against Arsenal it’s a different Van Persie,” Seedorf told BBC Sport. The 28-year-old striker has so far scored 28 goals for the Dutch national team. He is widely expected to leave Arsenal in the summer, with Juventus emerging as a major candidate for his signature.

New coach Marco van Basten has verified to be a revelation off the pitch as significantly as he was on it because taking more than the Dutch national crew. Plucked from an obscure youth coaching position at Ajax exactly where he stored his head down and had reduced responsibilities when Dick Advocaat quit after Euro 2004, van Basten has produced this new-glimpse Dutch group his individual.

Out with the previous and in with the new looks to be van Basten’s philosophy so whilst previous properly identified favourites these kinds of as Clarence Seedorf and Patrick Kluivert have been given the chop, some of the finest players the Dutch Eredivisie has to give have appear in to substitute them.

Players such as AZ Alkmaar’s Denny Landzaat, Feyenoord’s Dirk Kuyt and Ajax’s Ryan Babel may well not be household names but but have all won the backing of the manager. Ajax have a sturdy representation in the squad, with John Heitinga, Nigel de Jong, Hedwiges Maduro and Wesley Sneijder, all below the age of 23, vying for a place in the starting line-up.

The faith proven in locally-primarily based gamers along with far more recognisable faces this kind of as evergreen trio Edwin van der Sar, Edgar Davids and Philip Cocu and the likes of Arjen Robben and Ruud van Nistelrooy has paid off.

The staff are showing correct group spirit and togetherness, unlike the inconsistent squads of the previous and in qualifying notched up 32 factors, the highest of any European facet. Holland completed five factors apparent at the top rated of their group that also incorporated bogey aspect Czech Republic and Romania, the two of whom they beat twice. Astonishingly, the only country they didn’t defeat was Macedonia who they drew with twice.

Ruud van Nistelrooy was in scintillating kind in the course of qualifying with 7 ambitions in 10 matches and now back again in favour at Manchester United, could be a very good investment for the top rated goalscorer market.

The Dutch are usually one of the favourites for the tournament but by no means quite deal with it. They have arrived at the final twice, the semi finals and quarter last phases but never ever have adequate to win it outright.

The staff entering this 12 months have tiny Earth Cup experience and it would be a massive ask of this team to go all the way in Recommendation:Holland give much better value to win Group C than Argentina but a lack of encounter all through the squad signifies they cannot be backed to win the tournament outright. Ruud van Nistelrooy could be a good each and every-way investment for the top goal scorer berth on his debut at the finals.
