Cameroon Sack Coach Seedorf After AFCON 2019 ExitCameroon has sacked their head coach, Clarence Seedorf after he failed to defend their Africa Cup of Nations title.

The 43 year old had been in charge for under a year.

His assistant Patrick Kluivert, his former Netherlands and Ajax team-mate, has also left his role.

Cameroon 3-2 loss to Nigeria in the round of 16 in Egypt, lead to the country’s sports minister calling for Seedorf to leave.

The former Netherlands midfielder however said he was happy to continue and felt his squad had shown promising signs.

Seedorf signed a four-year deal to take charge of the Indomitable Lions in August 2018.

But a statement confirmed that

“following the premature exit of Cameroon’s men’s flagship squad, Cameroon’s football federation in line with clauses in their respective contracts has decided to bring an end to the contracts of Seedorf and Kluivert”.

Seedorf and Kluivert were given the task of retaining the Africa Cup of Nations, which was originally intended to be held in Cameroon and set the target of reaching the 2021 edition of the tournament and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
