Clarence Seedorf is the main contender to replace Massimiliano Allegri on the Milan bench next season, claims La Gazzetta dello Sport.
It has been reported for some time that Allegri’s position is dependent on securing third place, valid for the Champions League preliminary round.
However, over the last few days the rumours suggest President Silvio Berlusconi is determined to sack Allegri regardless of the Serie A placement, especially as the Coach is already thought to be in talks with Roma.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport this morning, Berlusconi’s first choice for new tactician is Seedorf.
The Dutchman spent 10 years in the Milan midfield and left in the summer of 2012 to join Brazilian club Botafogo.
It would be a huge gamble to throw Seedorf right into the mix as head Coach of a Serie A giant, as he has no management experience.
The reports claim Vice-President Adriano Galliani resists the Seedorf idea, but that President Berlusconi is adamant he’s the right man for the job.
