Clarence Seedorf is facing an uncertain future, with widespread reports in the Italian media suggesting he will be sacked as coach of AC Milan today.

It is reported that the 38-year-old, who has only been in the post for four months, will be replaced by former Milan team-mate and current youth team coach Filippo Inzaghi.

Seedorf signed a two-and-a-half year contract in January and took the team from 12th place in Serie A to an eighth-place finish.

But rumours about the Dutchman’s future have been rife for several weeks, and club president Silvio Berlusconi met chief executive Adriano Galliani on Monday night to discuss Seedorf’s future.

Italy’s three sports papers, Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport, all carried similar reports, which were unsourced.

Inzaghi spent 11 seasons playing for Milan, where he won two Serie A titles and two Champions League titles, and also won 57 caps for Italy.
