Seedorf appointed as Cameroon coach with Kluivert as assistant
Clarence Seedorf has has been unveiled as Cameroon’s new manager after a deal for former England chief Sven-Goran Eriksson fell through.
The duo’s appointment was announced on Saturday by Cameroon’s Minister of Sport and Physical Education, Pierre Ismael Bidoung Mkpatt.
Former Cameroon manager Hugo Broos led the Indomitable Lions to a surprise victory over Egypt at the 2017 African Nations Cup finals, but was later axed in November after failing to win a place at the World Cup in Russia.
The 42-year-old has previously managed at AC Milan, Shenzhen, and Deportivo La Coruna. Seedorf’s last brief spell was with Deportivo last season but could not help them from relegating to the second tier of the Spanish League.
He led those teams in a total of 52 games, but is known for a significant playing career, most notably at Ajax Amsterdam, Real Madrid and AC Milan, winning the Champions league with each club.
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, as well as being the head coach of the Curacao national team which is hugely influenced by Dutch born players.
Now former Real Madrid and AC Milan star Seedorf alongside his assistant Kluivert, will be the men to lead them at the 2019 African Cup of Nations on home soil in June next year.
