Seedorf: 'I never went away'

Clarence Seedorf has arrived to take over at Milan and assures he “never went away. There is a lot of work to do.”

The Dutchman terminated his playing contract with Botafogo in order to replace Massimiliano Allegri as Coach.

His flight landed in Milan’s Linate airport this evening and he spoke briefly to journalists before travelling to San Siro for the second half of the Milan-Spezia Coppa Italia tie.

“I’m back? The truth is I never went away,” smiled Seedorf. “There is a lot of work to do in order to bring Milan back to the top.

“President Silvio Berlusconi had predicted everything two years ago. I am very touched and very, very happy. The team and the fans need this enthusiasm.”
