One of the most unexpected managerial appointments appears to be nearing reality with Clarence Seedorf – yes, *that* Clarence Seedorf holding talks with League One Oldham Athletic.

Le Buzz was preprared to write this off as total nonsense, despite it making headlines in the Daily Mail and Daily Mirror, to name but two places.

But suggestions Seedorf had been shown round Oldham’s facilities before having talks with the club over dinner in Manchester were given further credence by this tweet:

Predictably, there was some surprise that a four-time Champions League-winning player, and a former manager of AC Milan, would be considering a move to Boundary Park

And what about the culture shock awaiting Seedorf in League One?
