Cameroon Coach, Clarence Seedorf’s philosophy is already dividing opinion even before his first official game for the African side.
On Tuesday the Dutchman, who is hoping to lead the Indomitable Lions to a sixth African Cup of Nations next year, could shut out several top names from the team.
Seedorf said,”Good young players don’t compete in China or in Asia.”
“Players must understand that if they go after more lucrative contracts, then they forfeit their chances of playing in the national team.
“But we’re not closing the door on anyone, we want disciplined and hardworking players and if someone is in the Middle East yet he can deliver for the team, we’ll bring him in.”
Seedorf was talking as he named his squad to face Comoros in a 2019 Nation Cup qualifier in September.
“The best players want to play for the best clubs in Europe and appear in top competitions like the Champions league,” he continued.
“We need good results and for that we have to build a competitive squad.
“This is just the beginning but we want to start imposing our winning philosophy and setting up the team like we’ll like to see them play.
“If you’re a talented player and you’re 20 years old, you should be playing in the Uefa Champions league or in the elite European teams like AC Milan, Juventus, or Chelsea.”
