In February 2018, former Ajax, Real Madrid and AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf was appointed head coach of a Deportivo La Coruna team fixed firmly in the La Liga relegation zone. The former Spanish champions were without a win in seven games, and despite an upturn in performances this run continued for another eight under the Dutchman.
One week after registering a first win under their new manager, at home to Malaga, Deportivo travelled for a traditionally difficult away fixture against Athletic Bilbao. Two goals in the first 15 minutes silenced the San Mamés crowd, however, and Seedorf’s side went on to claim a vital 3-2 win in their battle against relegation.
Here, in this exclusive feature with The Coaches’ Voice, Seedorf reveals the formation and tactics he employed in securing a huge three points at one of the toughest grounds in Spanish football.
