Soccer: Seedorf's job as Milan boss not at risk - Berlusconi
Poor form continues with fourth consecutive loss17 March, 16:49
"Seedorf's position is not in doubt," three-time premier Berlusconi told the people he spoke to after Sunday's game, ANSA sources said.
"He'll be Milan's coach next year too". Berlusconi reportedly blamed the current situation on the club's transfer dealings and, therefore, on Chief Executive Adriano Galliani.
"The Milan team has been built badly," Berlusconi said.
Milan, who had to play almost all of Sunday's match in 10 men after goalkeeper Christian Abbiati got sent off and conceded the penalty for Parma's opener on five minutes, are 11th with 35 points, 40 points behind Juve.
Berlusconi's comments echoed those made by his daughter Barbara, a member of the Milan board, in October after a poor start to the season. At the time, ANSA sources said Barbara Berlusconi complained to her father that Milan had invested significant amounts on players in the last two transfer windows, but the results were disappointing because the money had been spent on the wrong players.
The ensuing rift led Galliani, Berlusconi's right-hand-man in soccer for Italian for almost 30 years, to say he was quitting, before the row was patched up, with Barbara Berlusconi being promoted to joint CEO.
