    According to Seedorf: “Thank you very much for all of the lovely letters congratulating me on entering the Muslim family. I’m overjoyed to be joining all of my brothers and sisters around the world, especially my darling Sophia, who has taught me more about Islam. I didn’t alter my name and will continue to go by Clarence Seedorf, as given to me by my parents! I’m offering my heartfelt greetings to everyone on the planet.”

    Throughout his illustrious career, Clarence Seedorf represented a number of prestigious clubs, including Ajax, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, and AC Milan.

    Last year, Seedorf teamed up with Khabib Nurmagomedov, a former UFC champion and one of the most prominent Muslim athletes of recent decades, to launch the Seedorf Khabib Performance Club, a football academy that would use a “unique training methodology” that combines football and mixed martial arts.

    “We have the same life mission,” Seedorf explained. “We’d like to give back to the younger generations.”
