Seedorf signs Milan contract

Clarence Seedorf has put pen to paper on a contract with Milan so as to officially take on the role of first team Coach.

The Dutchman confirmed earlier this week that he had agreed to take over on the San Siro bench, after Massimiliano Allegri’s sacking on Monday.

On from flying in to Milan on Wednesday evening to catch the team’s Coppa Italia win over Spezia, the 37-year-old this morning arrived at Milan’s headquarters, where he completed formalities.

The Rossoneri posted the above picture of Seedorf alongside Vice-President Adriano Galliani at Milanello, signing papers to make official his appointment as Coach.

The now retired midfielder is seen as having agreed to a two-and-a-half-year deal to take him through to June 2016.

Seedorf will this afternoon oversee his first training session in his new role at the club.

Reports have indicated that he is also pushing for Milan to accelerate Hernan Crespo’s appointment to his backroom staff.
