Seedorf will be the next boss of AC Milan, states Italian broadcaster
An Italian television station has confirmed that Clarence Seedorf has closed a deal with Milan to become their coach from 2014.
According to the source, the deal was made between the player and the club’s president, Silvio Berlusconi, when the two met in Rome this week.
The broadcaster confirmed that the former Dutch international and the Rossoneri have signed a pre-contract agreement stating that he will assume his duties at the start of the next European season.
Further details, such as the potential length of the contract, were not disclosed, but it has been reported that the current coach, Massimiliano Allegri, has already been informed that he will not continue at the helm.
If the reported information is believed to be true, then the 37 year old would miss the quarter-finals of the Copa Libertadores should Botafogo, his current club, reach that stage. Apart from being a pivotal player for the Alvinegro, the ex-Real Madrid star has already assumed a coaching role at the club.
