Clarence Seedorf and Patrick Kluivert appointed senior and deputy coaches of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

Former Dutch International Midfielder Clarence Seedorf is the new Head Head Coach of the Cameroon National Football Team the indomitable Lions. Seedorf will be assisted by his former team mate Patrick Kluivert. 

This announcement was made by the Minister of Sports  and Physical Education, Pierre Ismael Bidoung Mkpatt, at a news conference of yesterday  Saturday August 4th,  after talks with former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson failed to reach an agreement.

Seedorf takes over from the Belgian Hugo Broos, who led the side to a surprise victory at the 2017 African Nations Cup finals but was axed in November after failing to win a place at the World Cup in Russia.

Alexandre Belinga had been acting as caretaker coach since. 

The Indomitable Lions will defend their Nations Cup title on home soil in June next year, a first major finals test for the new management team.

Seedorf, 42, will take on his first national team job having had limited experience in coaching following brief spells with AC Milan, Chinese side Shenzhen and Deportivo La Coruna.

He led those teams in a total of 52 games, but is revered for an illustrious playing career, most notably at Ajax Amsterdam, Real Madrid and AC Milan, winning the Champions League with each club.

He was also capped 87 times by Netherlands between 1994 and 2008.

Former striker Kluivert's playing career also included Ajax, where he was a Champions League winner with Seedorf, Milan and most notably Barcelona where he spent six seasons.

He was assistant coach to Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal between 2012 and 2014, and was later briefly in charge of Dutch Caribbean nation Curacao.

The Cameroon Football Federation have made no official announcement on the vacant head coach role, but coaches in Africa are regularly appointed by governments.
