Seedorf dismisses rumours of AC Milan return

The Dutchman, who clinched the Rio state championship with Botafogo on Sunday, will not be heading back to San Siro as head coach in the near future
Clarence Seedorf has made it clear that AC Milan have not contacted him about potentially replacing Massimiliano Allegri as the club's head coach this summer.

A number of recent reports have suggested that Allegri is set to leave Milan at the end of the summer, but Seedorf has stressed that he will not be the one to take the 45-year-old's place.

"In my career they say things all the time. If Milan call me it is something else, but they did not call. This is all rumours, gossip," Seedorf told Lancenet.

Seedorf, who left Milan for Botafogo in the summer of 2012 after a 10-year spell at the Rossoneri, guided his new team to the Rio state championship this weekend after a 1-0 win over Fluminense.

"Each title has its emotions, but the work is invigorating. The emotion was equal to all of the championships, the same giant emotion," Seedorf said of the triumph.
"We deserved it, we had patience and strength. There were difficult moments and I am glad to be here."
