seedorf coachCorriere della Sera and La Gazzetta dello Sport are both reporting that the Dutchman will be allowed to leave at the end of the season after failing to impress the hierarchy at the San Siro.

38-year-old Seedorf was named as AC Milan coach in January after Massimiliano Allegri was sacked due to a disappointing start to the season. After a poor start to his reign as coach, which saw AC Milan knocked out of the Champions League, Seedorf seems to have turned the clubs form around, and they are unbeaten in their last five matches.

The Rossoneri currently sit 8th in the Serie A table, and with five games left, they could still finish in the top six, and qualify for the Europa League.

However according to the two Italian papers, Seedorf has failed to bond with the AC Milan players and vice-president Adriano Galliani. Midfielder Riccardo Montelivo and full back Ignazio Abate are said to be two of the players who are critical of Seedorf’s coaching skills.

Seedorf recently completed his UEFA coaching badges, but it seems he could be leaving his first chance as a coach, after only five months in charge.
