Silvio Berlusconi aimed a jab at Clarence Seedorf by suggesting pensioners with dementia “could control the Milan locker room.”
The club President spoke to Telelombardia after his first day of community service at care home the Istituto Sacra Famiglia in Cesano Boscone, which specialises in working with dementia patients.
“I met many people there,” said Berlusconi. “They could control the Milan locker room pretty well.”
This was seen as a sideswipe at current Coach Seedorf, who was convinced to retire early from playing in order to take this job by Berlusconi in January.
However, in the following months their rapport has cooled considerably and it is widely reported Berlusconi wants to get rid of the Dutchman before next season.
The Rossoneri have won six of the last seven Serie A games and are still in contention for a Europa League spot.
Former Prime Minister of Italy Berlusconi is starting community service after he was convicted of tax fraud.
