Clearance Seedorf is a big name, and everyone knows him. He had a successful career as a player, and I think he can help us a lot with his experience. And also as a person, I don’t know too well, but from what I understand, he made a good impression on me. He talks to the players a lot, and he tries to do things better. That’s already a good start.”
Seedorf’s assistant is another former Dutch International, who also had a successful career playing for some of the biggest football clubs in the world. Patrick kLUIVERT. He happens to be one of the players Eric Chuopo Motion was inspired by while growing up as a kid.
“Together with Patrick kluivert, Who was also a huge player, for example me as an offensive player, I looked up to him. He can help us a lot.
