Essien: Seedorf will be a ‘super champion’ coach

Ghana midfielder Michael Essien has praised AC Milan coach Clarence Seedorf, despite the Dutchman’s poor outing for the Rossoneri.

The Ghanaian believes Seedorf will become a title winning coach soon as this is just the start of things.

“I’ve always liked and admired him as a player,” said the 31-year-old to Forza Milan magazine.

“A man who manages to win four champions league titles with three different teams means that he has important values.”

He added: “Other players don’t seem to have the same great skills and ideas that have made him a global champion. I’m sure it won’t take long for him to also become a super champion as a coach.”
