Date published: 30 September 2017

Clarence Seedorf is in the running to become the new manager of Oldham Athletic.

Seedorf, 41, the former Real Madrid player and Netherlands international, met club chairman Simon Corney on Thursday and had a tour of the facilities at Boundary Park.

Capped 87 times by his country, Seedorf was appointed head coach of AC Milan in January 2014 but was dismissed after just four months.

In July 2016, he became manager of Chinese side Shenzhen F.C. but was replaced five months later.

John Sheridan left Latics by mutual consent on Monday after taking only seven points from their opening 10 games.
