Seedorf: No-one misses on purpose

Clarence Seedorf has defended his misfiring Milan frontline and confirmed Cristian Zapata and Mario Balotelli’s availability for this weekend.

The Rossoneri head out to Udine on Saturday evening off the back of a promising performance last weekend against Juventus, but also with a 2-0 defeat.

With his team having missed a number of first-half opportunities, Seedorf was asked before his pre-game Press conference on Friday on that lack of a cutting edge.

“I focus on the fact that we have created, it is very important to create those chances,” the 37-year-old responded to Milan Channel.

“Nobody misses on purpose, I do not need to remind anyone of how many strikers do not score for three months.

“Then, suddenly they will come back into the goals. This is football, it is a spinning wheel - someone who knows how to score goals like Pazzini, Balo and Kaka can stay dry. Eventually they will score.”

Milan can welcome back Mario Balotelli and Cristian Zapata for tomorrow, according to the Coach.

“Zapata is fine, he has finished training well. Bale is still feeling pain, which is normal, he will have to live with it. They will be available for Udinese.

“Udinese? We need to give continuity to our performance, if not then we cannot help the result.

“I hope to see the team with the same character and concentration. The result will be a consequence of that.”
