Milan have won five in a row, but Clarence Seedorf’s situation is increasingly tense. “Ask the club.”
The Coach abandoned his playing career early in January to take over from Massimiliano Allegri and has steered them back into contention for a Europa League spot.
However, he was visibly irritated during interviews after the 3-0 victory over Livorno and shrugged when asked about his future.
“I don’t know, you’d have to talk to the club. I can’t speak for others,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“I am focused on bringing home as many points as possible, that is what was asked of me, and try to prepare for next season.
“Am I perplexed on the club’s failure to make my position clear? You’d have to ask the club that.”
Today’s Corriere della Sera claims President Silvio Berlusconi has lost his initial enthusiasm for the Seedorf project, while CEO Adriano Galliani was thought to be against it from the start.
La Gazzetta dello Sport suggests that players are unhappy with the situation and even requested a transfer, but Seedorf has won over the fans following an initial period of confusion at the change.
Vincenzo Montella was tipped as the first choice, but made his commitment to Fiorentina absolutely clear.
Therefore the favourite becomes current Milan youth team Coach and Seedorf’s former teammate Pippo Inzaghi.
