Seedorf eager to bring attacking football to AC Milan

AC Milan coach Clarence Seedorf says he wants to bring attacking football to the team.

Seedorf is proud to be back with the Rossoneri.

"Coming back to AC Milan was like I'd never been away actually. You know everybody, everybody knows you," said the 37-year-old.

"Getting back to Milanello was just like coming back after I'd been injured or on holiday for a while. After 10 years I think you get a sense of things and of course the President, Silvio Berlusconi, has always expressed the values he would like to see on the field and also off it.

"The DNA of Milan is something I have inside of me. Those are values I definitely want to work on and want to impart to the group, because we have a responsibility, especially to the younger ones watching us: it's not only about winning, but about how we win; it's not only about competing, but about how you compete.

"I like to see a team that likes to attack, who is creative, which for me means players who do individual stuff, but also a team like Bayern Munich has shown over the last few years that with great organisation and offensive power.

"I'm not really a fan of those teams who are always waiting behind and counter-attacking. Of course that can be very effective, you can win like that and sometimes you have to play like that."
