Seedorf on target in Botafogo victory

Feb 8 2013, 1:50am CST | by

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 8 (IANS) Former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder Clarence Seedorf continued his prolific goal-scoring form as Botafogo rallied to defeat Resende 4-2 in Rio's Campeonato Carioca.

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 8 — Former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder Clarence Seedorf continued his prolific goal-scoring form as Botafogo rallied to defeat Resende 4-2 in Rio's Campeonato Carioca.

Resende led 2-0 late in the first half but goals from Seedorf, Marcio Azevedo, Cidinho and Sassa ensured victory for Botafogo at the Engenhao Stadium Thursday, reports Xinhua.

Seedorf, 36, has now scored four goals in his past two matches, having netted a hat-trick in his team's 3-1 win over Macae Sunday.

"We can't afford to start matches so slowly," said the former Dutch international, who is relishing the advanced playmaker role accorded to him by Botafogo coach Oswaldo de Oliveira.

"We responded well after conceding two early goals but we have to learn to start matches with more conviction," he added.

In Sao Paulo's Campeonato Paulista, Marcio Araujo and Henrique struck first-half goals as Palmeiras overcame Atletico Sorocaba at the Pacaembu Stadium.

Jul 25 2014 10:01am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Milan registered a historically poor defensive record last season, so earlier this summer the club signed veteran centre-back Alex in hopes that he would improve what was the team's worst unit in recent memory. Alex spent last season in France with Paris Saint-Germain, partnering former Milan star Thiago Silva in Ligue 1's best defense in terms of goals conceded. After Mamadou Sakho left the Parc des Princes to sign with Liverpool, Alex made the spot alongside Silva his own and ...

Italian newspaper Tuttosport (h/t 101GreatGoals) claims the Rossoneri have been a fan of the Costa Rican sensation since seeing him entertain on loan at Olympiakos.

AC Milan cool interest in QPR’s Adel Taarabt

Jul 23 2014 6:29am CDT | Source: forzitalianfootball

Despite a successful loan spell with AC Milan last season, it seems the club will not be pursuing a permanent deal for QPR’s Adel Taarabt. Taarabt arrived to much surprise in January of last year on loan from Premier League side Queens Park Rangers, and went on to play 14 games, scoring four goals, in a successful loan spell that almost led to the Milanese giants taking up their €7 million purchase option on ...

How Will Jeremy Menez Fit into AC Milan's Plans This Season?

Jul 18 2014 3:51pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Filippo Inzaghi wasted little time securing the signing of Jeremy Menez from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, personally meeting with Menez in Ibiza to convince him to join the Rossoneri's latest project. Given that Inzaghi had yet to even be confirmed as Clarence Seedorf's successor at the helm of Milan at the time of said meeting, it is clear that he possesses a high opinion of Menez's talents as a footballer, and as such acted with ur ...

Brazilian Football Needs Major Overhaul Ahead of 2018 World Cup

Jul 18 2014 4:30am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Over a week has now passed since the most humbling result in the history of Brazilian football, quite possibly the most shocking in the world game. The successive defeats for the Selecao at the back end of the World Cup, but particularly the 7-1 mauling at the hands of Germany, have already spelled the end for Luiz Felipe Scolari. The search for his successor is now underway. But Brazilian football, once thought of as the definitive sch ...
