Seedorf receives Milan ultimatum

AC Milan

It is being reported that AC Milan coach Clarence Seedorf has been told he must deliver against Lazio and Fiorentina to save his job.

AC Milan are in turmoil and there are reports that coach Clarence Seedorf's first managerial job could be short lived if he doesn't turn things around quickly.

Seedorf was brought in to try and resurrect the Rossoneri's season after a dismal first half of the season under Massimiliano Allegri.

After an initial wave of optimism, Milan have slumped once more and elimination from the Champions League at the hands of Atletico Madrid was followed by poor Serie A results.

Last weekend's 4-2 home defeat against Parma led to angry fan protests and Seedorf's job seems to be in question.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Seedorf has been told that his future depends on the outcome of Milan's next two games.

The Diavolo face the tough test of two away games in four days, first against Lazio and then Fiorentina.

La Gazzetta states that after a meeting between Barbara Berlusconi, Adriano Galliani and three players it was agreed that those games would be decisive.

Mauro Tassotti is waiting in the wings to take over on an interim basis with former striking star and youth coach Pippo Inzaghi ready to take over in June.

Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has also been suggested as a possible replacement after the World Cup.
