Clarence set to be made a casualty of the AFCON war.
Cameroon's sports minister has supported the sack of the National team’s coach, Clarence Seedorf, following a disappointing outing at the ongoing 2019 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] where they lost out to Nigeria in the round of 16.
Mouelle Kombi, the sports minister of Cameroon, stated that the former Real Madrid and AC Milan legend has been unable to build a winning team, control the dressing room or build a strong team character for the national team.
On August 6, 2018, Clarence Seedorf took the position of head coach of Cameroon's National men's football team, naming Patrick Kluivert, his fellow Dutch footballer, as his assistant. However, the relationship between the pair has reportedly gone soar, as Kluivert is allegedly interested in the role of the head coach and no longer viable to be an assistant. Reports emerging from Cameroon suggest that Patrick Kluivert, former Barcelona player and coach, has the full backing of the Cameroonian sports football federation.
Mouelle Kombi claims the defeat to Nigeria still “burns” him back home. This he made known in an interview with CRTV news outlet in Cameroon. The five-time AFCON champion survived the group stage with the same points as the eventual table-toppers, Ghana, but fell short on fewer goals.
