The president of the Cameroon Football Federation Prince Seidou Mbombo Njoya have signed a release terminating the contracts of Dutch duo Clarence Clyde Seedorf and Patrick Kluivert following the Indomitable Lions disappointing display at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.
This decision comes after the countries minister of Sports and Physical Education announced 24 hours earlier on national Television (CRTV) that the results and style of football practiced by the Cameroon team under the two coaches was unsatisfactory and he had called for the federation to inform the coaches of Cameroon’s intention to discontinue the working relationship between the country and the coaches.
Seedorf took a very talented Cameroon team to THE 2019 AFCON in Egypt but failed to bring out the best in the Team and as defending Champions the team won just one of 4 games before been kicked out of the tournament in the 16th finals by eventual semi finalists Nigeria.
Seedorf’s era as Coach of Cameroon though less than 12 months old have been plagued by controversies ranging from players critizing him publicly to illogical selection fringe players, disagreement with his colleagues and arrogance towards his environment amongst others.
Cameroon will now go out in search of a replacement for the pair and other vacant places in the technical bench that may be created in the days ahead.
Seedorf leaves with a disappointing win rate of 33% in 12 games as Coach of Cameroon.
His departure has been endorsed by the boss of FECAFOOT who should be in Cairo this Thursday for the CAF General Assembly.
Ghana Premier League side, Asante Kotoko have dissolved their communication team which comprises of 12 members with immediate effect.

“I am so grateful to the members for everything they did for the club,” “It has been so nice working with them. I wish them all the best in their future endeavors. I will be coming out with a new team in the coming days.”, he added.
Frank Lampard believes Chelsea does not need to sign new players this summer for the team to challenge for the big titles next season.
The Blues are banned from signing players for the next two transfer windows but that will not affect Chelsea’s plan going into the new season according to Lampard.
The former England international who was appointed as the club’s new boss last week on a three-year deal pointed to the feat the team achieved last season as a sign why Chelsea will not suffer from the transfer ban. The Blues won the Europa League and finished in the top three last season with the same current crop of players at Lampard’s disposal bar Hazard and Gonzalo Higuain.
With Pulisic arriving and some of the club’s young players signing long term deals at the club, Lampard believes the team is well equipped to compete on all levels next season.
He also hinted how he wants his team to play ahead of next season. The former Manchester City star said he wants a team that can work hard with and without the ball.
“I know the club very well, I know the players very well. I have my own way on how I want to work with the players”. “I have to say in one week we have been training, I have been very happy with the quality of the players”.
“My job now is to work hard in pre-season with them”. ” I like my team to play with a lot of energy and speed with and without the ball”.
“So if we lose the ball, I want us to win it as quickly as we can”. “And when we have the ball, I want us to create chances to win games and to feel like we playing a football that we enjoy”.
The 40-year-old also revealed he hopes Callum Hudson Odoi and other Chelsea youngsters follow Mason Mount suit by signing a new contract.
He believes Odoi will be an important player for both Chelsea and England in the future. He also revealed he is willing to give young players a chance at the club, but they will have to show they can make the difference.
