Reports: Seedorf must secure Europa League or be axed

The Corriere dello Sport reports that AC Milan boss Clarence Seedorf's job is hanging by a thread after defeat against Parma.

The pressure is mounting on AC Milan boss Clarence Seedorf and there are reports that he needs a dramatic turnaround to save his job.

The Dutch midfielder was given his first coaching job when he was brought in to replace Massimiliano Allegri after a terrible first half of the season at San Siro.

After a brief honeymoon period, Seedorf has struggled and the underachieving Rossoneri are stuck in another slump.

Having been dumped out of the Champions League by Atletico Madrid and suffered Serie A defeats against Udinese, Juventus and Parma, the fans are livid and there is talk of another managerial change.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Seedorf has been given an ultimatum already: qualify for next season's Europa League or face the sack.

The paper claims that Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi phoned CEO Adriano Galliani last night after the 4-2 loss to Parma to discuss Seedorf's position, which will be on the agenda at a meeting between directors this afternoon.

In order for Milan to secure Europa League qualification they will need a true renaissance as they currently occupy 11th place in Serie A and trail sixth-placed Parma by 11 points.
