AC Milan ace Kaka is surprised by the appointment of Clarence Seedorf as new coach.

The pair were teammates before Kaka left for Real Madrid.

"Seedorf was a technically fantastic player and very intelligent," Kaka told TV Globo in Brazil.

"He loved to talk and guide the others on the field, so he had the profile of a Coach even when he was playing.

"It's the first time one of my old teammates has become my Coach. It's strange, as the person who was by my side on the pitch is now giving me orders from the touchline. He is very disciplined and organised, so he knows what he wants. He learned so much from playing in the biggest clubs in Europe."
