Real Madrid hero Seedorf to take charge of Deportivo La Coruna

Real Madrid hero Clarence Seedorf is set to take charge of Deportivo La Coruna.

Depor have acted after their 5-0 thrashing by Real Sociedad.

Cristobal Parralo was shown the door and the Galicians immediately turned to Uruguayan veteran Martin Lasarte, a former defender at Estadio Riazor, although he rejected their offer.

Pachuca boss Diego Alonso was also considered before it emerged that licensing issues may prevent him from managing in Europe, leading Depor to Seedorf.

The Dutchman, who spent four months in charge of AC Milan in 2014 before a spell with Shenzhen FC, is expected to be confirmed as coach on Monday morning.
