Clarence Seedorf insisted he wasn’t given an ultimatum, but reports continue to claim he’ll be sacked if Milan lose heavily to Lazio.
The Coach was bullish in his Press conference, assuring there was no truth in the suggestions he had two games to save his job on the Rossoneri bench.
He only took over from Massimiliano Allegri in January and the switch had started well, but a run of four consecutive defeats in all competition plunged the club back into crisis.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, assistant manager Mauro Tassotti has been put on stand-by to become Caretaker Manager if the defeat to Lazio tonight is a particularly heavy one.
It’s claimed in several papers that President Silvio Berlusconi now regrets his decision to hire Seedorf and is listening to CEO Adriano Galliani, who had been against his arrival.
If Tassotti takes over for the remaining weeks of the season, current Primavera youth team Coach Pippo Inzaghi is the favourite to come in next term.
Other options are Parma boss Roberto Donadoni, who is another former Milan player, and sacked Zenit manager Luciano Spalletti.
There are also reports that Mario Balotelli and Adel Taarabt will be dropped this evening in favour of Giampaolo Pazzini and Keisuke Honda.
