Clarence Seedorf has been appointed the head coach of Cameroon’s national football team, the Indomitable Lions, ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Cameroon’s Ministry of Sports made the announcement on Saturday and Seedorf will be assisted by his former Dutch teammate, Patrick Kluivert, per Africanews.

Seedorf, 42, also managed Chinese division one side, Shenzhen FC before he was appointed Manager of La Liga club, Deportivo La Coruna.
His assistant, Patrick Kluivert was Louis van Gaal’s assistant at the 2014 World Cup with the Netherlands.
Yaounde will host the next competition in 2019 and preparations are already underway.
