Cafu believes Milan Head Coach Clarence Seedorf deserves time to prove his managerial credentials

Cafu is hopeful that Milan will remain patient with Head Coach Clarence Seedorf.

The Dutchman, who was a team-mate of Cafu’s at the Rossoneri between 2003 and 2008, left Botafogo and ended his playing career to replace Massimiliano Allegri in January.

Seedorf’s target was to qualify for the UEFA Europa League, but despite missing out by one point, Cafu believes he deserves time to fully implement his plans.

“Let’s hope the club understand his ideas and that they allow him to do his job,” he told Sky Sport Italia, as reported by Football Italia. “He has different ideas, but he brought in some changes and that is not easy to do during the season.

“They should give him one or two full seasons before judging him.

“If they get rid of him now it would be disrespectful. If they don’t keep him and don’t get some good players how are they going to have a competitive team?”

Cafu and Seedorf were at Milan during one of the club’s most successful spells. The duo won six major honours together before Cafu retired in 2008. Seedorf remained at San Siro for a further four seasons, adding a Serie A title and Supercoppa Italiana.
