The Cameroon Football Federation FECAFOOT has fired Clarence Clyde Seedorf as head coach of the indomitable lions after their disappointing performance at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Seedorf’s assistant, the former Netherlands striker Patrick Kluivert, also departs from his role after the defending champions were dumped out in the last 16.
The Cameroon Minister of Sports and Physical Education Narcisse Mouelle Kombi made a special appearance on a programme of the state media CRTV where he drew a balance sheet of the Lion’s participation in the competition.
Prof. Narcisse Mouelle Kombi said Clarence Seedorf was unable to instill discipline within the team during the competition.
He equally said Seedorf and assistant Kluivert were unable to manage the team and instill fighting spirit in the lions.
The sports Minister highlighted the differences between the coach and his assistants which made their working relationship difficult.
The minister said these reasons make it difficult for Clarence Seedorf to continue as the head coach of the indomitable Lions.
