CESARE PRANDELLI: “Seedorf was already a professor on the pitch”

MILAN – Italian coach Cesare Prandelli reflected on Clarence Seedorf and Mario Balotelli:“I always say that once a coach gets his qualifications, he should start from the Youth Sector, but Clarence is different. He was already a professor on the pitch, he’s studied and he’s still studying. He has the personality to take the pressure off the players. I’m convinced that he deserves the position he’s in and has the right mentality to handle the pressure. Balotelli should follow him and the Dutchman should be a constant reference point and the he’ll get to the World Cup with his advice. The tears against Napoli? I don’t want to get into any player’s personal life but when a player accepts his own emotions, that’s a sign of strength not weakness”.
