Seedorf Expected To Leave


It is widely speculated that AC Milan are about to part company with manager Clarence Seedorf, who has failed to deliver European football to the team. Seedorf was appointed as the replacement for Massimiliano Allegri midway through the last campaign. Allegri was sacked due to poor results, which put the club’s immediate future in European football in major doubt. Despite this appointment, the former Milan midfielder failed to turn the fortunes of the club. They finished in a disappointing place outside the top six, which will mean no form of European football season.

This coupled with rumours that the owner Berlusconi is unhappy with Seedorf has increased rumours that the Dutchman will leave the club in the next few weeks. Inzaghi has become the frontrunner to replace him. The former Milan striker is currently working as the youth team coach. He said that he had several opportunities to leave the club, but since Milan have become his life, he ended up staying. He has revealed that he is ready to take up any job at the club, while he is also contracted as the youth team coach until 2016.

Inzaghi’s open statement that he is ready to take over the Milan job is likely to put Seedorf’s future in major doubt.
"Excited by what I'm reading? Who doesn't get emotional about what they read? Milan is my life and my story. I've stopped playing for Milan but I do everything they ask of me. We'll see what happens, I'm a Milan employee until 2016. I could have left but I wanted to stay because I have a contract here. That's the path I will follow. If some good news is communicated to me then great. Otherwise, I am proud to continue coaching the Primavera team," said Inzaghi in a recent interview.
