The Dutchman made his professional football debut at Ajax Amsterdam at the age of 16, before enjoying successful spells with Sampdoria (Italy), Real Madrid (Spain), Inter Milan and AC Milan (Italy), and Botafogo (Brazil), in a career spanning three decades.
Now, Seedorf began to cultivate business. He applies his football skills to the business he runs. The father of four is the owner of the sports management firm On International and well-known restaurant Fingers, located in Milan, Rome and Porto Cervo. He also owns a brand called MM with a lounge restaurant in Naples.
“I just love studying because I always feel like something is missing. I started so early, I was 16 when I made my debut for Ajax, and I had other interests besides football,” he told arabianbusiness.com.
“I started doing some business but you see, if you’re honest with yourself, you know that some knowledge is limited. When different people start talking about things, and I don’t like that, I want to know what they’re talking about. “
“When I grew up with Ajax, every week we were expected to win games, and if we win 5-0 it’s not enough, you have to win 6-0 or 10-0 or 12.
“It’s part of our mindset. People in business don’t necessarily go through that so flexibility isn’t there. But you can train yourself, especially the part how you recover from stress.”
