Cameroon sacks coach Clarence seedorf After AFCON poor performance

Cameroon head coach Clarence Seedorf and assistant Patrick Kluivert have been sacked following their exit from the Africa Cup of Nations.

The 43-year-old Dutchman, who assumed the managerial position in August last year, leaves along with assistant coach and former global team-mate Patrick Kluivert.

The Indomitable Lions were knocked out by Nigeria in the round of 16 courtesy of a 3-2 defeat, with Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi netting the winning goal.

Following what the Cameroon FA deemed a “premature exit”, sports minister Narcisse Mouelle Kombi stated it was time for the manager to leave.Cameroon sack Clarence Seedorf

“When you consider all what was done and the poor results obtained, in all objectivity, there’s no need to continue having Clarence Seedorf as head of Cameroon’s men’s football team,” Kombi told national broadcaster CRTV.

Cameroon were successful in the previous edition of the Africa Cup of Nations in 2017, sealing their fifth title with a 2-1 win in the final against Egypt.
