Cameroon Hire Ex-Holland Internationals Seedorf, Kluivert As Head, Assistant Coach

Former Netherlands midfielder, Clarence Seedorf, has been appointed the new manager of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

Seedorf, who also played for top European clubs, AC Milan and Real Madrid got the job after after a deal for Swede , Sven-Goran Eriksson fell through.

Seedorf will be assisted by his former international teammate Patrick Kluivert.

The length of Seedorf’s contract with the five-time African champions will be announced later this month.

Seedorf, 42, has previously managed AC Milan, Chinese club Shenzhen and Deportivo La Coruna.

He lasted less than six months in all three roles.

Seedorf, who replaces Hugo Broos, will have at least a year to work with the team before the 2019 Nations Cup tournament starts on home soil.

    The proof of the pudding is in the eating. Cameroun must not count their chickens before they are hatched. Great players don’t always make terrific managers, as we have seen from Diego Maradona. If corruption and politics at FECAFOOT don’t frustrate Clarence and Patrick they should do a good job.

  • This is just popularity seeking appointment. For sure from now on the Cameroonian team will be focused on because of these two great players appointed. The big question is Will they produce? These are pure coaching neophytes. Very inexperienced. They may become successful but for now I am yet to see why Cameroon decide to employ these two great players as coaches and assistant.
