Speculation is that Clarence Seedorf’s relationship with Adriano Galliani has broken down, and that he will Milan in the summer.
The Dutchman has fallen under scrutiny during his brief spell as Coach at San Siro, for the Rossoneri’s continued indifferent form.
Despite seeing an upturn in recent weeks yield four consecutive wins, reports in the media this week have suggested that the 38-year-old’s future beyond the summer hinges on leading the club to at least a fifth placed finish.
However, the Gazzetta dello Sport today are running the line that relations between Seedorf and director Galliani are once more broken down, amid conjecture that the Coach was pressured at the weekend by the club to play Riccardo Montolivo from the start against Catania, after apparently initially deciding otherwise.
The Corriere della Sera follow this up with the assertion that Seedorf’s relationship with a number of those in the dressing room, including Montolivo, Christian Abbiati and Mattia De Sciglio, is also poor.
Combined with their belief too that Galliani is not on good terms with the former midfielder, the publication allege that Seedorf will leave in the summer, regardless of the team’s final League position.
