Milan Issue New Ultimatum For Seedorf

Pressure continues to mount on Clarence Seedorf, with reports that the Dutch Coach might not even survive the month.

Sport Mediaset claimed on Tuesday that Milan President Silvio Berlusconi has been so unimpressed with performances, that he may consider sacking the former midfielder.

Seedorf replaced Massimiliano Allegri earlier this year, but has failed to helm an upturn in results, with the club languishing in 10th position and crashing out of the Champions League.

The station believes that Berlusconi wants to see wins against Lazio and Fiorentina in the next two games, or the ex-Netherlands international will be pushed towards the exit door.

Mauro Tassotti is expected to take over until the end of the season, before Pippo Inzaghi is brought in from the youth team.

It is a total train wreck at the San Siro with fans and former players all talking about how this is the worst Milan side in over a decade. Milan legend Paolo Maldini, who in 24 seasons with the club won a total of 26 major honours, cannot believe how far the club has fallen:

“Yes I watched the game, as well as the match with Atletico and nearly all of those of the past two years,” began Maldini to the Gazzetta dello Sport today.

“Inside me there is a mixture of anger and disappointment, not so much for the results, because they are the 10th or 11th to have arrived, but because the impression is that they have thrown away what was built with hard work over the previous 10 years.

“For me this is very bad. Milan have had the good fortune of having many winning cycles with similar synergies of men, I know how much work there was behind so many triumphs, what it took to build such a beautiful story. To see it all destroyed drives me crazy.”

The problems that Milan have go far beyond Clarence Seedorf. Firing the manager will fix a squad that is unbalanced and lacking in quality. What Seedorf needs is time to clean out the Milan dressing room and bring in players that want to play for the club.
