Barcelona legend Johan Cruyff says Marco van Basten is the ideal coach for AC Milan. Despite Van Basten's problems at Ajax this season, Cruyff says the former Rossoneri star is the man to succeed Carlo Ancelotti.

"Van Basten is the right man for Milan," said Cruyff.

"Marco has the experience to dominate the dressing room. They also said (Pep) Guardiola was not ready."

Asked about Serie A in general, Van Basten added: "I follow it and it is interesting, but it is a pity that the stadiums are often empty."
