Former Real Madrid and AC Milan superstar Clarence Seedorf has been named new Cameroon Indomitable Lions manager with compatriot Patrick Kluivert as his second in command.

According to a UK Sun report, the current African Cup of Nations holders were looking forward to bring in ex-England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson before talks hit the rocks at the closing moment.

The report further revealed that the 42-year-old ex-Real Madrid and AC Milan star will be at the helms of affairs when Cameroon defend their Africa Cup of Nations tittle on home ground as host of the 2019 edition.

At the last count, Seedorf has managed three clubs at AC Milan, Shenzhen and Deportivo La Coruna as manager in his young career as a football tactician.

However, the veteran midfielder has spent less than six months at every club in his career as he battled to leave a mark.

Seedorf earned 87-appreances for Holland’s Oranje Boys and a combined 875 games during his football career across Ajax, Sampdoria, Real, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Botafogo spanning over two decades.

During his active days Seedorf claimed two Eredivisie titles, silverware in Spanish La Liga, two Serie A gongs as well as four Champions League winners' medals.

However, since switching to management Seedorf has struggled to replicate what he achieved as a player with a mere 32.6 per cent win rate.

In his last job at the Spanish topflight, Seedorf won just twice in his 16 matches as manager as Deportivo were relegated to the second-tier league in May.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Seedorf's former club AC Milan have lost defender Leonardo Bonucci to Juventus for a fee reported to be close to €40m in what is still a shock move to football fans.

The Italian helped Juventus win six consecutive Serie A titles as well reaching two Champions League finals.
