Clarence Seedorf: Dubbed A Dutch Knight

AC Milan’s Clarence Seedorf gave the biggest grin without gums after being appointed Knight in the Order of Orange-Nassau by the Netherlands ambassador to Italy in Rome, 28th April 2011. He’s got every right to be giddy, now that he’s in good, chivalrous company with Edwin Van Der Sar and Giovanni van Bronckhorst (the only other Dutch footballers to have received the honour).

    Congratulations to this noble man, a well deserved honor. He is an example for others to follow on and off the pitch. Forza Seedorf! We're very proud of you.

    Congrats to Clarence!
    But Johan Cruijff (as player) and Bert van Marwijk and Rinus Michels (as trainer then) also received a Knighthood. But these three are the only active footballers.

    I have always felt that he is a prince among men, and now, bravo! A knight among men. Love this man.

    I can't think of anyone who deserves this honour more. Clarence Seedorf is a wonderful player and a true gentleman. Always a refreshing voice of reason in a mad football world as well. Congratulations!

    Congrats Clarence! Still going strong at 35!
    Seedorf is a magnificent player, and one of the most underestimated ones as well. He is the only player in the world to have won the Champions League with three different clubs (Ajax, Real Madrid & AC Milan)!
