Seedorf and Kluivert land Cameroon national team job

Former Netherlands internationals Clarence Seedorf and Patrick Kluivert have taken over the coaching job of the Cameroon national team.

Their engagement was confirmed by the country’s Minister of Sports and Physical Education Bidoung Mkpatt in a press conference on Saturday morning.

The Cameroon job had been vacant since the exit of Hugo Boss who failed to qualify the Indomitable Lions to the 2018 Fifa World Cup.

It is understood that Cameroon turned their attention to the Dutch pair after being put off by the financial demands of Swede Sven Goran Eriksson who was in Cameroon last week for the same position.

Clarence Seedorf takes the head coach position while his former team mate Patrick Kluivert works as assistant.

Seedorf’s previous experiences has seen him coach AC Milan as well as Deportivo La Coruna while Kluivert was assistant to Louis Van Gaal at the 2014 World Cup before spending a year at Paris Saint-Germain as director of football.

Cameroon will host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations next June, where they will be the defending champions after lifting their fifth title in Gabon last year.
