Seedorf to make Milan changes

Clarence Seedorf has confirmed that he will make several changes to the Milan XI for the game against Udinese tomorrow.

The Rossoneri go to Udine on Saturday afternoon, but ahead of their match with Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday, the Coach has revealed that he will tinker with his starting line-up.

“I’ll make changes,” he told a Press conference. “We have another really important game in five days’ time, and we have to take into account the players.

“But this is going to be an important test for us. I want the team to continue with the same attitude they have shown since I’ve been here.

“We’re going to find a very dangerous Udinese team tomorrow, but we have to focus on ourselves first.

“Their strengths are clear. It’s normal to have ups and downs as a club, but we’re preparing to face the best possible Udinese.”

The tactician then commented on Keisuke Honda and not focusing on the League table.

“Honda will play tomorrow. Tomorrow he’ll be ready to make some sort of contribution. A lot of players have found adapting to Italian football difficult, but Keisuke is a great player.

“He is available and will undoubtedly grow in his role.

“It doesn’t help anyone to look at the League table. We just have to strive to do as well as we can on the pitch and then see what happens.

“We’re going into every match with a good attitude. We don’t need to be reminded every minute where we are in the table.”

Seedorf concluded by looking ahead to the European clash with Atletico Madrid, highlighting Diego Costa’s danger.

“He’s a very dangerous player when he gets the ball and drives towards the box. He’s a striker in form, that’s for sure.

“Sometimes it seems as if he’s not in the game, but then, when he comes to life, he’s dangerous.”
