CLARENCE SEEDORF is still demanding every single penny but there is no understanding between his representatives and Milan.
Milan fired Massimiliano Allegri in January 2014 and he was replaced by Clarence Seedorf, who was Silvio Berlusconi top option for the Rossoneri bench. However, the love didn’t last long between Dorf and the red and black club, for which he played for 10 full seasons, and the Dutchman was fired at the end of the season.
Filippo Inzaghi is the current coach of Milan but Seedorf still has a running contract with the Diavolo until June 2016. He left the club without an agreement over severance package and the case is far from being closed; the 38-year-old former midfielder is still demanding the full salary (€5m gross per season) and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, he won’t back down.
“We hope for an amicable solution and one that satisfies both sides but the last meeting didn’t go very well and if the present state of things remains as it is, there is a strong risk that it will end up in court,” Tiziano Treu, a former Italian minister who has a law firm in Milano, told GdS. Treu is assisting Seedorf in his battle against Milan, who’re represented by their lawyer Leandro Cantamessa. In addition to demanding the full salary, it’s possible that the four-time UEFA Champions League winner will sue the Aldo Rossi club for moral and material damages. Of course, if Seedorf gets another job as a coach, Milan will not have to pay him anything.
A new meeting between Seedorf’s people and Milan could take place next week and they will again try to find a solution. Seedorf, at €2.5 million net is one of the best-paid people on the Adriano Galliani and Berlusconi’s payroll this season.
