Former Netherlands and AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf said on Tuesday he would become the Serie A club's new coach.

The Dutchman, who has no previous coaching experience, told a Rio de Janeiro news conference that he was retiring as a player. The 37-year-old left Milan for Brazil's Botafogo in 2012.

Seedorf will replace Massimiliano Allegri who was fired by Milan on Monday following a dismal run of results for the seven-times European champions.
