According to Voetbal International,ex-Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf will sign a deal with Milan on Wednesday to become their new coach.

The 36-year-old played for Brazilian club Botafogo last season, but will use a release clause to leave for Milan, and draw an end to his playing career. Milan will be Seedorf’s first attempt at management, and he will have a tough task ahead of him, with the club currently sitting 11th in the Serie A table.

During his playing career, Seedorf represented AC Milan 432 times in 10 years, helping the club win two Serie A titles, and two Champions League trophies.
