Earlier this month Clarence Seedorf joined AC Milan after they parted ways with previous coach Massilmiliano Allegri, they have agreed a two year deal with Seedorf but it has yet to be seen whether or not this will usher in a new era at Milan.
Seedorf enjoyed a trophy studied career at AC Milan, honours included two Serie A titles and two Champions League titles. He made 300 appearances for the Italian giants from 2002 – 2012. He moved to Brazil in 2012 to play for Botafogo, here he scored his first career hat trick and helped them to the Brazilian state title.
Despite this glittering career his first four games in charge of Milan have been difficult. He has come into a team not in dire straits but definitely in need of some attention. Seedorf won his first game against Verona but since has drawn one, lost one and won one. Whilst this isn’t an apocalyptic start it could’ve been better.
All is not lost however the squad does still have some good players. Kaka and Robinho are looking somewhat closer to their old selves, while Mario Balotelli was quick to pledge allegiance to Seedorf.
I’m sure that Seedorf will lead Milan at least some way towards the results and squad of old, but this is not going to be a quick process by any means. I hope the director gives him time to get into the squad and impose his character.
