Seedorf urges AC Milan ultras not to turn on club

AC Milan boss Clarence Seedorf has urged fans not to lose the faith.

The ultras have announced a protest ahead of today's clash with Parma, particularly targeting Mario Balotelli and CEO Adriano Galliani.

"I feel a lot of love and expectation from the fans towards me," commented Seedorf. "They expect something more from me, but I am certain that I'll do Milan good. It wouldn't be football without the fans, so we must respect and understand their sentiments. They want effort and appreciate sacrifice.

"For the past two years Milan have been chasing down the others and psychologically it was tough. When I got here, I did not find a team in good physical or psychological shape. We can't think everything will improve straight away.

"The players are improving, but results have not been consistent, so that is what we are looking for now. We have to turn the page, target European qualification and focus only on what happens on the field.

"There is nobody guilty here, as we are all working to get the best for Milan. With Galliani we'll do everything in future to make the Milan fans proud of us. It's a difficult situation right now, as we are lacking confidence."
