Former player and current coach Clarence Seedorf gave an interview to ‘La Gazzeta dello Sport’ in which he raised his voice against racism.
After a brilliant football career, Clarence Seedorf decided to hang up his boots and embark on what was shaping up to be a promising coaching career.
But the former Real Madrid player has made trips to Milan, Shenzhen, Deportivo La Coruna and, finally, Cameroon. He is currently without a club.
Seedorf was keen to explain his reasons: “I had to take these opportunities to prove myself. I took risks because few calls come in and we know why.”
“I played 12 years in Italy. After Milan, where I did a good job, zero calls. Why don’t the great champions have a choice in Europe, where they made history? Why should Vieira go to New York and Henry to Canada? ”he added in ‘La Gazzeta dello Sport’.
Seedorf has also raised his voice to fight racism in society, and not only in football: “Coaches do not have the same opportunities, there are no people of color in positions of power in the soccer”.
“It is a general discourse, for all of society. Those who can change things must feel the responsibility of creating a meritocratic world, keeping all the doors open. The best results can only come from diversity”, a- he added.
