Russia coach Fabio Capello says Clarence Seedorf is capable of taking charge of AC Milan. The Botafogo midfielder is being linked with the job at Milan.

"Clarence has ability and I have an excellent relationship with him," Capello told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I remember that it was me who advised him to go and play in Brazil seeing as he was thinking about the UAE and Russia a year ago.

"Evidently this experience is serving him well, but to immediately take the responsibility of the Milan job is something else."
