Reports: Ex-Real & Barca Stars Linked With African Giants

A former Real Madrid midfielder and an ex-FC Barcelona striker are reportedly being considered as a coaching duo for a vacant job at an African giant.

Neymar Vows To Become A New Man After WC Criticism

According to ESPN, former Netherlands internationals Clarence Seedorf and Patrick Kluivert are being considered as potential candidates to take over the Cameroon managerial position formerly held by Hugo Broos.

The Indomitable Lions, who are the reigning African champions after winning the Africa Cup of Nations in 2017, have been without a permanent head coach since December 2017, after the Belgian and the Cameroon Football Federation parted ways. 

A source in the Cameroonian sports ministry has now claimed that the two Dutchmen are highly rated by the country's FA, despite their lack of managerial experience.

"It is hotting up with the duo, Seedorf-Kluivert," the source told Foot Mercato.

"They do not have a lot of experience, but their incredible history as players could be extremely useful to our squad which has been suffering from a major lack of direction in recent months."

Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has also been considered for the Cameroon position, and was even in Yaounde over the weekend, as confirmed by the Cameroon FA, but talks between the association and the Swede have reportedly stalled.
