Cameroon’s former football coach demands $8 million for arbitrary termination of contract

Former head coach of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, Clarence Seedorf, and assistant Patrick Kluivert are demanding a whopping $8 million (about 5 billion CFA francs) from the government of Cameroon, saying their contract was unfairly terminated.

The duo served as head coach and assistant coach respectively of the national football team for less than a year and were fired after the horrific performance of the Indomitable Lions at the 2019 African cups of Nations.

Clarence Seedorf and Patrick Kulivert took over when the national football selection was the defending champions in Africa, failed to lead the team beyond the quarter-finals in the 2019 AFCON.

Their contract was immediately terminated upon Cameroon’s disqualification by Nigeria.

Angered by the move by Cameroon football authorities, the disgraced coaches took the case before the world football governing body, FIFA demanding severance package to the tune of $8 million.
