AC Milan president Berlusconi gives manager Seedorf backing
MAR 19, 2014 7:29a ET
AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has rejected suggestions that Clarence Seedorf's job is under threat following a poor run of results.
They have also crashed out of the UEFA Champions League at the last 16 stage after a 5-1 aggregate defeat at the hands of Atletico Madrid.
That had led to protests from supporters and reports that former Milan midfielder Seedorf, who was only appointed as Massimiliano Allegri's successor in January, could soon be replaced.
But Berlusconi has moved to back the man currently in the hot-seat and attempted to shift the blame for the current malaise on to previous incumbents.
He told SkySport24: "Seedorf is not up for debate.
"He will still be the Milan coach next year. Milan are a badly built team."
