The head coach of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, Clarence Seedorf has told the media that he is not bordered about his future with the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon despite the country’s early exit from the 2019 African Cup of Nations.
The defending champions couldn’t nail down a place amongst the last 8 in the ongoing 24 nations jamboree as they were beaten by 3-2 by 3 times winners Nigeria in an exciting 8th finals Clash in Alexandre.
In the wake Cameroon’s latest defeat of 3 in 12 games under Seedorf, the Dutch head coach who had only come to African football through what most likely can be termed “a failed experiment” carried out by the Cameroon Football Federation(FECAFOOT) said he is not quitting now.
“I think we had a good game today against a very good Nigeria side, it was interesting for the public though our fans will go home feeling disssapointed. One thing is sure, for now am thinking about my future, I just want to build a team for the future, yes off course it’s difficult to lose games like this but we learn and keep working”
Seedorf was Cameroon’s “August Guest” in 2018 as the country vibrated with excitement when he first came but one year on, he has lost more fans than the number of fans he has won for the Lions as he failed to get the best out of a talented generation of Lions.
It will take something extraordinary for the “underperforming Dutch gaffer” to keep his job till 2021 when Cameroon host the next AFCON tournament, as the results in his 4th assignment as a coach takes him closer to the list great footballers who failed to equal their successes as footballers when they got into coaching.
Seedorf has won only 33.3% of the 12 games he has managed since he picked up the job as coach of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in August 2018.
So far Javier Aguirre of Egypt and Sébastien Desabre of Uganda have already lost their jobs as National team coaches since the end of their team’s journey at the ongoing tournament and kick442.com understands Seedorf will join that list not too long from now.
