SILVIO BERLUSCONI has again commented on the position of the coach and he didn’t shut the door on Seedorf.
The 2013/2014 season is finally set to end with the last game of the season coming this Sunday when Milan host Sassuolo at Stadio San Siro and the game might very well be the last one of Clarence Seedorf as the coach of the Diavolo.
Seedorf was preferred by Berlusconi to replace Max Allegri, who was sacked after losing to the same Sassuolo in January, but while results have been coming Milan’s way with Seedorf, the club is not happy with his off-pitch performances.
“Was it a mistake to hire Seedorf? No it wasn’t a mistake,” President Silvio Berlusconi told Radio 24 on Friday noon. “We believed that he had everything that’s required to be a good coach. It’s not excluded that Seedorf will stay as long we reach an agreement with him regarding his position at Milan. We will make a decision about Seedorf after the season is over.”
Luciano Spalletti appeared to be the leading candidate to replace Seedorf but it appears that the two parties have their differences regarding wages so Milan are looking at other options. Filippo Inzaghi has said he will respect his Milan contract and will remain as the coach of the Primavera but he could also be given the keys to the first team. Vincenzo Montella and Antonio Conte are both highly unlikely while Parma’s Roberto Donadoni remains an interesting alternative.
“The two CEO’s? Both Barbara and Galliani live up to the demands of this club in terms of their innovation and experience,” Berlusconi added. A decision regarding Seedorf will be made in the next weeks; Clarence has a contract until 2016.
