Seedorf eyes Premier League management

MILAN: Clarence Seedorf for AC Milan.

Dutch legend Clarence Seedorf says he dreams of being a manager in the english Premier League.

The midfielder played with Ajax, Real Madrid and AC Milan, but never in the Premier League.

And that is a dream he hope to fulfill during his coaching career.

“I never got to play in the Premier League, so hopefully it will happen as a coach sooner or later,” he continues. “It’s the most exciting and enthusiastic league at the moment and it would be a privilege to be able to come and work here,” he says to Sky Sports.

I’m not a player anymore, so I started from zero [as a manager],” he says. “Managers lose more than they win until they get to the big 10 clubs, then they start winning a bit more than they lose. But I think that 90 percent of coaches lose more than they win. It’s part of the job. There’s no guarantee of winning, even if you are the best players and the best team.

“I was interested not only in the management side of it but also the physical coaches, the medical staff, all the things that have been part of my career as a player and around the team. I’ve always found it interesting, asking questions, and that today helps me a lot because I have an understanding of many things that maybe others don’t. So that process started a long time ago.”
