Tassotti: 'Delicate Milan moment'

Mauro Tassotti was pleased with Milan’s 3-1 Coppa Italia win over Spezia and welcomed Clarence Seedorf.

As Massimiliano Allegri was sacked on Monday, his assistant manager Tassotti was on the bench tonight as caretaker manager.

“It was a good game with some good moves. It was delicate due to the moment we are in. Spezia are in Serie B, but a good side and we did well,” he told Rai Sport.

“Milan are a little bit in difficulty, but we knew that otherwise this would’ve happened in June.

“We have the opportunity to improve the situation and the Coppa Italia is a valuable option for Milan to get back into Europe.”

Seedorf arrived in the city this evening and was in the stands of San Siro for the second half of the victory.

Tassotti was asked whether hiring a man with no coaching experience was a huge risk for Milan.

“Clarence only just stopped playing a couple of days ago, so some might say he has no experience as a Coach, while others will point out he has played at the highest level for so long that he knows everything he needs to.”
