Clarence Seedorf appointed Deportivo La Coruna coach

Struggling Deportivo La Coruna on Monday named former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder Clarence Seedorf as coach until the end of the season and the Dutchman believes he can keep them in the top flight.

The struggling Galician side, 18th in the Liga table and three points from the safety zone, sacked Cristobal Parralo on Sunday and Dutchman Seedorf is their third coach this season.

Ex-Netherlands international Seedorf, who played nearly 900 games and won five Champions League titles with Ajax Amsterdam, Madrid and Milan, has only taken charge of 36 games as a coach.

Depor turned to him after first-choice Martin Lasarte reportedly rejected their offer.

Depor sacked Pepe Mel in October, with Parralo fired after a 5-0 defeat by Real Sociedad on Friday left the team without a win in their last seven games.

Parralo was the sixth coach to be dismissed by president Tino Fernandez since he took over in 2014.
