Cameroon appoint Clarence Seedorf, Patrick Kluivert as national team coaches

GOAL | The Dutch legends have been saddled with the responsibility of managing the Indomitable Lions

Cameroon have appointed Clarence Seedorf as their national team coach.

The west African country turned to the former Deportivo La Coruna and AC Milan manager after a deal for Sven-Goran Eriksson did not go through.

The Cameroonian FA confirmed talks with Eriksson who has also been linked with Iraqi in Yaounde earlier this week but the former Netherlands international will succeed Hugo Broos who was sacked last year after the country missed out on the 2018 World Cup.

Seedorf managed Deportivo last season but could not help them from relegating from to the second tier of the Spanish league.

The former AC Milan midfielder will be assisted at the helm by former PSG sporting director Patrick Kluivert.

Kluivert who turned out for Ajax, Milan, Barcelona among others during his playing career has previously been assistant managers at NEC Nijmegen, AZ Alkmaar and Netherlands.

The duo have less than a year to work before Cameroon host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations scheduled for June next year.

  1. We will give them guns to fight for Ambazonia. They are already aware of their roles. Welcome comrades

    • Wow! You are still dreaming. Please wake Senator.
      I would have preferred Cameroonians as coaches but these 2 are better than those usual old white men.

  2. Their salary???

  3. Ni Bah Acho,

    what says you?

    I know you’re highly concentrated on paper tree research…

    • kikikiki ZAM ZAM,,,,what we can deploy about cameroon football is the lack of long term strategic vesion.our football administrators behave like european and american captains of industry who over concentrate on short term quaterly profits against long term strategic interest like,first winning market shear before thinking about profits.we can say without possibility of mistake that this two coaches will not solve cameroons football problems because it is not their responsibility.
      in oder to build a competitive football system that produce exeptional talents generation after generation like spain.we need long term vesion especially in the area of formation at ground level.more emphasis should be put on technic than phisic,even more important industries to accomany financially.

      • Oh Yes, Ni !

        Brasseries, Kadji and other football academies did a good job in the past, as they produced good relay talents for the lions.

        They have probably now re-channeled such funds dedicated for football academies towards the production of maize to boost the carbohydrate+alcoholic content of mimbo, since CMRs are more inclined to be more faithful to mimbo than to football nowadays…

    • KIKIKI ZAM ZAM,,,,,what we can deplore about african football as a whole is lack of longterm strategic vesion.our football administrators behave like euro american cptains of industry who focus on short term quaterly income than longterm strategic interest,for example winning market shear before thinking of benefits.

  4. Cameroun team can not improve, Is the fight in their football association resolved?

  5. African Solution

    He will fail woefully because African football in which he has very little experience is very different from the European football he has always known. Broos lasted for a while because he had firsthand experience from North Africa. Btw why do these idiots at fecafoot are always quick to go for foreign coaches? Because the illicit cut, kickbacks and sign on bonuses is higher when the salary is also high. Thomas Nkono who has coached Español De Barcelona for a while, Jean Paul Akono who gave Cameroon its highest ever football medal, Patrick Mboma, Jules Nyonga. Belinga are all better chances but won’t make the cut because of little kickback.

  6. Seedorf managed Deportivo La coruna which was relegated to the second tier last year. I don’t see the duo making any significant impact besides lining their pockets with their 63 Million CFA Francs monthly salary. Since everything in Cameroon is done the Cameroonian way, it’s going to be had to regain the past glory.

  7. Brown Sugar (Abuja)

    it is possible the Supper Eagles can also bring the cup to Naija.
    The Super Falcons did it right there in Yaounde in front of Mr. P.
    What our ladies can do, our men can do it even better kikikikikiki, laughing in mbum.

    Congrats to Cameroon and Seadorf
