Currently preparing for the World Cup with the Netherlands national team, the 29-year-old has reflected on a difficult season with the Rossoneri, which is expected to result in Seedorf’s replacement on the bench with Pippo Inzaghi.

“We do not know anything yet but I hope that he stays,” De Jong has reflected on Seedorf this week to ANP.

“You know what it is like in Italian football, but Clarence did a fantastic job with the players that he had not chosen himself.

“We managed a lot of good performances in four months, with him, we played better and more offensive.

“Unfortunately we did not get into Europe by a point but you have to give it time, we must begin a new cycle with him.”

The midfielder was asked where the situation leaves him this summer.

“I am 29 years old, it will be an important decision. I will have to choose whether to stay here or go somewhere else.

“I’m at a big club but I just want to know what the plan is for next season.”
