Clarence Seedorf is confident he still has the backing of the AC Milan board.

Seedorf was asked if he felt himself at risk after a series of defeats, having only replaced Massimiliano Allegri in January.

"How many times has a Coach been at risk after a few months, despite signing a two-year contract? I am not responsible for the situation that was created. I am here to improve the situation.

"I have a contract, the club has faith in me and I am trying to give my best. There was a lot of work to do here, so I am certain that with me the club will construct a strong Milan for future seasons. It doesn't matter if you are not optimistic, because I am."
