Seedorf, Kluivert sacked after Cameroon’s AFCON exit


The Dutch duo of Clarence Seedorf and his assistant Patrick Kluivert have been fired after Cameroon’s disappointing performance at the Africa Cup of Nations.
The sacking comes after the country’s sports minister called for their dismissal.
The defending champions were dumped out in the last 16 after losing 3-2 to Nigeria.
The Indomitable Lions won just one of their four matches at the tournament in Egypt, which led to calls from the country’s sports minister, Narcisse Mouelle Kombi, for the pair to be released from their contracts.
And on Tuesday, Cameroon’s football federation announced it had terminated the four-year deal Seedorf had signed in August 2018.
The body said in a statement that it had brought an end to the respective contracts of Seedorf and Kluivert ‘following the premature exit of Cameroon’s from Cairo.
Former AC Milan and Netherlands midfielder Seedorf was in charge of 13 matches but won only.
The job was his first in international football after previous brief spells in charge of AC Milan and Deportivo La Coruna in Spain.
Cameroon will host the next Nations Cup finals in June 2021 but must take part in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers that are likely to start later this year.
