Milan midfielder highlights lack of experience
Clarence Seedorf believes the experience and cunning of Milan will see Arsenal eliminated from the UEFA Champions League.
The Gunners host Milan at Emirates Stadium for the first leg of their last 16 Champions League clash on Wednesday as Arsene Wenger's young side go in search of their first European Cup success.
However, Milan midfielder Seedorf - who won the competition with the Italian giants last season - believes his side will prove too strong for Arsenal over two legs.
"In my view, although Arsenal are one of the best teams in Europe and have been playing very well lately, they lack experience," Seedorf said in the Sunday Mirror
"We are champions of Europe and have won this competition seven times. We know how to handle these occasions.
"We have experience and we also have cunning, especially when it comes to ties over two legs.
"Arsenal have a great record at home but. But the second leg being at the San Siro will be our advantage."
And Seedorf has tipped Arsenal's star midfielder Cesc Fabregas to struggle against the experience of Milan lynchpin Gennaro Gattuso.
"Cesc Fabregas is one of the best midfielders in the world," Seedorf added. "But we have quite a few world class midfielders, including Gattuso. I think Fabregas will find it tough up against him."
