SILVIO BERLUSCONI could deal directly with the departing Milan coach as the package has yet to be agreed.
Milan have pretty much already replaced Clarence Seedorf and it’s clear to all that Filippo Inzaghi will be the coach next year. Pippo is working for next season and yesterday he was even in a meeting with Menez, who’ll probably join his team.
But Inzaghi is not officially the boss and Seedorf still holds this title as the Rossoneri haven’t managed to agree a severance package with the Dutchman and his lawyers. It appears that Silvio could now take things into his own hands.
Seedorf was Berlusconi’s pick in January. The President chose to appoint him instead of replacing Massimiliano Allegri with Inzaghi but the love between them was lost quickly and Milan decided to sack the former Real Madrid man who did a good job in his few months, coming close to reaching the 6th place that leads to the Europa League (needed one point).
Milan’s lawyer Leandro Cantamessa and Vice President Adriano Galliani have failed to find a solution and come to an agreement with Dorf and his men regarding the dismissal wage. If Milan fire Seedorf without agreeing a package, they’d owe him a reported €10 million as the 4 times Champions League winner has a contract worth €2.5 million net until 2016. il Corriere dello Sport reports on Wednesday that President Berlusconi could meet Seedorf in person to negotiate a deal.
The meeting between Seedorf and the former Italy Prime Minister could take place on Saturday or Sunday. Berlusconi is also expected to visit Casa Milan for the first time on June 6th and he’ll probably release some statements then.
