Some might think that after 20 years on the field a footballer would be looking for retirement, especially if you have won four Champions League trophies, two Serie 'A' titles and one La Liga medal. But it is not the case of Clarence Seedorf, he wants more.
A legend in the football world, Seedorf is facing another challenge in his glorious career. The Dutchman decided in 2012, to fulfill an old dream and move to Rio de Janeiro and play for Botafogo.
Normally, Botafogo is not considerer an usual Brazilian title contender. But with Seedorf, everything has changed. The club occupies the first place of Brazilian League. The "Professor", as he is called, has been in superb form this year, scoring 11 goals in 28 matches.
In addition to that, Seedorf is the head of Botafogo's midfield, and also helps young prospects in their growth, assisting them with advices. His leadership inside and outside the field is contagious, and he is considered to be an example for everybody on the club.
Seedorf never misses training, and is always the first one that arrives and the last one that leaves. This is one of the reasons that made him win the status of captain of the team. On the pitch, Seedorf is still the same: great vision of the game, sensational passes and accurate shots.
Seedorf already won a title this year, and is looking for more in this semester. The ex-Real Madrid midfielder shows that he can still play his best football and be vital for the leaders of Brazilian League.
Although the legend is now playing for a weaker championship, Seedorf's performances are impressive, and makes me think that he could still be playing for European teams, such as A.C Milan, despite his age.
Once a legend, always a legend.
