Botafogo’s technical director Sidnei Loureiro has played down speculation linking Milan with Clarence Seedorf.
It is speculated that the Rossoneri will turn to their former midfielder this summer to replace Massimiliano Allegri as Coach.
But, his current club say that his playing contract runs for another year and that no approach has so far been made.
“Have Milan asked for Seedorf from us? I think it is more necessary to speak with Clarence,” Loureiro told reporters this week.
“It is not a matter for Botafogo and the Rossoneri.
“He has a contract with us until June 30, 2014 and, to date, this hypothesis has not been spoken of.
“He trains with us and is very calm.”
Seedorf was cornered by reporters in Brazil too, but gave little away.
“Here in Rio or in Milan I will find my future with the Rossoneri. I feel good at Botafogo.
“I follow Italy on the TV. The Scudetto for Juventus? They deserved it because they were the stronger and it is not a surprise. They are doing well now.”
