Seedorf: Thanks to Deportivo La Coruna for this opportunity. I'm more experienced than Zidane was

Clarence Seedorf is delighted to have been named new coach of Deportivo La Coruna.

The former AC Milan boss was named Depor coach on Monday.

Seedorf stated: "Thanks to Depor for this opportunity to help the club, it is in a difficult situation, but life has these moments, I am very happy to return to work in football and return to work in a club with a lot of history, in a league that gave me a lot as a player and launched my career, it seems destiny, I return as a coach to do the same.

"Depor is a club with a lot of history, it does not deserve to be where it is, but in sports, even doing things well you do not have the results, I am a person who likes to take the hot potato.

"It's already very easy, I think it's possible, that I can give something important to the club and that the club to me too."

On his lack of experience, the former Real Madrid midfielder added: "Zidane had less experience than When I started in Madrid, we had to see the quality of the person, the potential ... with Milan we did a good job but it was not an easy moment for the club."
