Clarence Seedorf takes over as AC Milan coach – the best of the Twitter reaction

“I am retiring from football after 22 years. My aim is to dream again. This experience at Botafogo has helped me grow a lot and will no doubt help me in my next step as coach of AC Milan. I wish Botafogo and my team-mates the best.” – Clarence Seedorf.

With AC Milan a whopping 30 points behind Juventus and having lost to Sassuolo on Sunday, the Rossoneri have appointed Clarence Seedorf to replace Massimiliano Allegri.

It seemed pretty clear yesterday that Seedorf was the man to take over at the Rossoneri despite suggestions on Monday that Pippo Inzaghi would be the ex-player to bring AC Milan onside…

The 37-year-old had an excellent playing career – most notably with 4 Champions League trophies with 4 different sides.

But, latterly, Seedorf has also been brilliant for Botafogo and has appeared to show that he has a “football brain” on the pitch throughout a long and storied career.

Seedorf becomes the first Dutch coach ever in Serie A and will likely arrive for the Coppa Italia clash with Spezia at the San Siro tomorrow.

As proof of Seedorf’s standing in the game, the Dutch legend was trending on Twitter after he announced in Brazil that he would be taking over at AC Milan.
