The Cameroonian Football Federation has appointed football legends Clarence Seedorf and Patrick Kluivert as assistant as their national team coaches
The 87-cap Holland international played 875 games during his playing career at Ajax, Sampdoria, Real, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Botafogo in a 21-year career.
Seedorf got his hands on two Eredivisie titles, one La Liga crown, two Serie A gongs and even four Champions League winners’ medals.
The duo’s appointment was announced by Cameroon’s Minister of Sport and Physical Education, Pierre Ismael Bidoung Mkpatt, at a news conference on Saturday and comes after talks with former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson failed to reach an agreement.
Alexandre Belinga had been acting as caretaker coach since and the new managerial team’s first major finals test will be to defend their Nations Cup title next June on home soil.
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.
His Dutch compatriot Kluivert who was an assistant coach to Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal between 2012 and 2014, and was later briefly in charge of Dutch Caribbean nation Curacao will be his assistant as Seedorf will be taking on his first national role in charge.
