One phrase that AC Milan coach Clarence Seedorf may have learned during his recent stint playing in Brazil sums up the task he faces in Italy: He has an enormous pineapple to peel.Seedorf, who is in his first coaching job, has found himself with an especially large and unwieldy pineapple following Tuesday's drubbing by Atletico Madrid and consequent Champions League elimination at the first knockout stage.Milan, however, will need far more than just commitment to get themselves back among Europe's or even the Serie A elite. Seedorf's side are tenth in Serie A, nine points adrift of a qualifying place for the much-maligned Europa League.Milan promised to stick with coach Massimiliano Allegri until the end of the season, but lost patience in January and brought in Seedorf, who was finishing off his playing career in Brazil with Botafogo.
