Seedorf: Secret of success keeping AC Milan squad happy

AC Milan boss Clarence Seedorf admits it's important for his squad to always be a happy place to be part of. Seedorf is pleased with the way his players have responded to his methods since his arrival.

"I want the players to play, laugh and enjoy themselves," Seedorf said. "I never get too annoyed if there are any mistakes.

"I need to show them that above everything that they have done well.

"Even if it's only for ten minutes, then great, it can become twenty, then thirty, and eventually a whole match.

"You journalists are so passionate about tactics and systems, you talk about it for hours!

"But do you know what the truth is? That in modern football there are only systems for the defensive side of the game.

"In attack there is total fluidity, six players who move and interchange constantly without there being an out and out reference point.

"Because of this, questions about our style of play annoy me!

"I have a plan and it is simple, I want my children to live in a better world than this.

"That is why my foundation, Champions for Children, exists, to educate through sport.

"And sport as a whole, not just football, is a fantastic point of reference for us adults too."
