Deportivo La Coruna have had a busy weekend after Friday night’s 5-0 thumping away to Real Sociedad and Clarence Seedorf is now set to become their new coach.

Losing to La Real by such a margin did for Cristobal Parralo and the Galicians immediately turned to Uruguayan veteran Martin Lasarte, a former defender at Estadio Riazor, although he rejected their offer.

Pachuca boss Diego Alonso was also considered before it emerged that licensing issues may prevent him from managing in Europe, leading Depor to Seedorf.

The Dutchman, who spent four months in charge of AC Milan in 2014 before a spell with Shenzhen FC, is expected to be confirmed as coach on Monday morning.
