Seedorf appointed coach of Cameroon

Former Dutch midfielder Clarence Seedorf has been unveiled as the new coach of Cameroon.

The former AC Milan and Real Madrid player will be assisted by former teammate and fellow Dutch Patrick Kluivert.

The duo’s appointment was announced after talks with former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson failed to fall through.

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 qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

The 42-year-old has previously managed AC Milan in 2014, Chinese club Shenzhen in 2016 and Deportivo La Coruna.

He lasted less than six months in all three roles.
