Milan Star Clarence Seedorf Eagerly Anticipating Ajax Champions League Clash

Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf rose to prominence at Dutch powerhouse Ajax in the 1990s and the experienced midfielder is eagerly anticipating his temporary return to Amsterdam for his side's Champions League encounter next week.

"Ajax really struggled against Real Madrid, because they allowed the Spaniards too much space. Madrid were more than happy to take advantage of that," said Seedorf to Voetbal International.

"Additionally, they missed star attacker Luis Suarez due to suspension. They will have learned from their mistakes against Madrid though. I'm really curious to see how they will play against us. I hope that it will be a great match.

"I will continue to play for a couple more years, but this could very well be my last match in Amsterdam. It's a very special feeling for me to return to Ajax for Wednesday's game and I hope the feelings are mutual."

The former Dutch international also looked back at the summer transfer window, where Ajax coach Martin Jol approached him to discuss a possible return to the Amsterdam ArenA.

"I was honoured that he gave me a call. I like his footballing philosophy and Ajax are still a great club. However, I'm not done at Milan just yet and want to win more silverware here."
