Dutch Legend Clarence Seedorf Makes Brazil Switch

Veteran joins Botafogo.

Legendary midfielder Clarence Seedorf has agreed to join Brazilian side Botafogo after he was released by AC Milan.

The 36-year-old, whose wife Luviana is Brazilian, has agreed a two-year deal with the Rio de Janeiro-based club, squashing speculation he could join Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur.

“He is the greatest foreign player ever to sign with a Brazilian club”, said Botafogo president Mauricio Assuncao on his side’s official website.

“He is not really coming here for money”, he added. “Seedorf is a player who is driven by challenges.”

Seedorf is the first player ever to win the Champions League four times – with three different clubs – winning with Ajax in 1995, Real Madrid in 1998 and Milan in 2003 and 2007.

The Suriname-born star has 87 caps for the Netherlands and played over 300 times in the Serie A for Milan.
