New Deportivo La Coruna Coach Clarence Seedorf has revealed he took the job because he ‘likes challenges’ and is confident of survival.
The former Dutch international - who also played for Real Madrid, Inter and Milan – has replaced Cristobal Parralo in the dugout for the Galician club.
Depor lie 18th in the league standings and are without a victory in seven outings, with five defeats, while the 41-year-old has managed the Rossoneri for 22 games in the first half of 2014.
“I like challenges and we have targets to reach this season,” Seedorf told his press conference upon his unveiling.
“This is an attractive job, a great club with many high quality players and I am confident we will improve our results quickly.
“This is a squad which has many qualities and I am convinced many of these players can achieve better results, but technically and tactically we are good.
“Of course this is a difficult situation but the group needs a lift and we want Real Betis to face an unrecognisable team on Monday in our first match.
“Everybody here is desperate to emerge from this situation, and I think the main challenge is psychological rather than in terms of skill.”
