AC Milan's Seedorf celebrates after scoring. He is being linked with a coaching role at his former club.

Former AC Milan star Clarence Seedorf has emerged as the leading candidate to replace Massimiliano Allegri as the coach of the Rossoneri.

The Italian club dismissed Allegri yesterday with the club 30 points adrift of leaders Juventus in Serie A but still alive in the Champions League and the Coppa Italia.

Allegri ended his three-and-a-half year reign following the club's 4-3 loss at Sassuolo.

Seedorf (37) is playing for Brazilian side Botafogo, a club he joined in 2012 after representing Milan for 10 years. Assistant coach Mauro Tassotti has taken temporary charge of Milan.

Former Milan forward Filippo Inzaghi, currently the club's youth team coach, has also been linked with the top job.
