Seedorf nominated as KNVB commissioner and successor Berger
Clarence Seedorf has been nominated as a commissioner by the KNVB’s paid soccer supervisory board. A vacancy had arisen within the rvc following the departure of Han Berger, who has become soccer technical adviser to the KNVB.
The general meeting of professional soccer appoints the members of the rvc. The next meeting of that assembly is June 27.
Earlier, generation-mate Nigel de Jong was appointed top soccer director. In doing so, the former international succeeded Nico-Jan Hoogma.
Seedorf: “I thank the KNVB and the SB for their trust and appreciation. As commissioner I can share my knowledge and experience with my colleagues within the KNVB with the aim of contributing positively to the game we all love so much.”
Seedorf is one of the most successful players in Dutch soccer history: he won the Champions League four times and played 87 times for the Dutch national team.
He played at three European Championships and at the 1998 World Cup, where the Netherlands reached the semifinals. He was also coach of AC Milan and Cameroon, among others.
