Seedorf: I don't need Milan assurances

AC Milan coach Clarence Seedorf claims he isn't fearing for his job and that his two-year contract is enough security.

This weekend's Milan derby is a massive match between two sides looking to save some pride after a disappointing campaign.

Inter and Milan will face off looking to strengthen their bids for a place in next season's Europa League - the minimum requirement that has reportedly been placed on both coaches.

Inter's Walter Mazzarri is looking more likely to deliver European football with his side five points clear of missing out on the Europa League.

Clarence Seedorf took charge of AC Milan after the dismissal of Massimiliano Allegri when they were floundering badly and he has struggled to steady the ship.

The Rossoneri are just one point outside the Europa League qualification zone but it promises to be a tense end to the season with Torino, Verona and Lazio level on 52 points and Parma and Milan on 51.

It has been widely reported that Milan are looking at former Italy boss Roberto Donadoni, who has done magnificently for Parma this season, as a possible replacement for Seedorf, but the Dutchman refuses to discuss doubts about his future.

"I don't want to talk about personal matters," the former midfielder said in his press conference this afternoon.

"I haven't read anything and I don't talk to the club through the press. They have already confirmed my position because I have a two-year contract.

"We will have to see whether we deserve the Europa League. The players and all the staff know that is the objective and we are all rowing in that direction."
