5 Issues That AC Milan Manager Clarence Seedorf Must Address to Save the Season

For those who suspected that things were a little too quiet at the San Siro this season, this week's news soon put paid to that.

With AC Milan just six points off the relegation zone, embattled coach Massimiliano Allegri bid "Ciao" to the Rossoneri as he was sacked and promptly shown the door.

In his place has come the articulate, accomplished and absorbing Clarence Seedorf, the former Milan midfielder who enjoyed such a successful spell in Italy as a player.

Having been Milan's standard bearer between 2002 and 2012, the former Dutch international made over 400 appearances for the Black and Reds, winning two Scudetti and two Champions League titles as well as capturing the Coppa Italia on two occasions.

Since departing Milan, he signed for Brazilian outfit Botafogo. But, as he told reporters who had assembled in Rio de Janeiro (as stated by The Guardian), it wasn't a difficult decision to return to Italy: "It's a place where I spent 10 years of my life so when the president asked me I couldn't say no."

Furthermore, he may be joined in the dugout by compatriot and former team-mate Jaap Stam. With the two having played together for both Milan and the Dutch national team, the Corriere dello Sport report that the championship-winning pair could reunite.

Reported to have signed a two-and-a-half-year contract, Seedorf's inbox will be overflowing when he arrives at the club's Milanello training ground.

Let's take a look at the five most pressing issues that require his attention.
