Former Dutch international Clarence Seedorf was introduced on Friday as Cameroon's new boss, with Patrick Kluivert as assistant.

Seedorf, 42, previously trained AC Milan, the Chinese team Shenzhen and Deportivo La Coruña, but lasted less than six months in each show.

The pair replaces the Belgian Hugo Broos, who won the African Cup of Nations 2017 but then could not qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

Kluivert revealed his pleasure by taking the job, stating on Instagram: "Let's make this brother, new challenge."

By signing his contract, Seedorf said: "I am honored to have the opportunity to manage this great country.

& # 39; We are ready for work and I hope everyone is ready. Our work starts today. "

Cameroon will defend their Nations Cup title in their homeland in June next year, a first important final test for the new management team, which will then focus on qualifying for the 2022 World Cup.

Seedorf, a Dutch international of 87 chapters, enjoyed an illustrious career as a player, winning the Champions League with Ajax, Real Madrid and AC Milan, sharing the triumph of Ajax with his new assistant.

While Seedorf has no previous experience in international administration, Kluivert was assistant coach of the Netherlands between 2012 and 2014 and helped his nation to a third place in the 2014 World Cup under Louis van Gaal.

The striker, the third best scorer in the Netherlands, has extensive experience as a coach, having been an assistant at AZ Alkmaar between 2008 and 2010, before fulfilling that role at Brisbane Roar and NEC.

After leaving Holland, he managed Cuaraco, the birthplace of his mother, but he could not help them qualify for the 2018 World Cup before training in the youth organization of Ajax and spending a season as sports director of PSG.

Seedorf follows the path of fellow Dutchman Arie Haan, who was head of Cameroon for six months between 2006 and 2007.
