Cameroon mentor Clarence Seedorf would not hypothesize on his future after the safeguarding champions smashed out of the Africa Cup of Nations in the last 16 after Saturday’s 3-2 misfortune to Nigeria.
Odion Ighalo scored two objectives and set up Alex Iwobi for the champ as Nigeria energized from 2-1 down after Cameroon had struck twice with hardly a pause in between through Stephane Bahoken and Clinton Njie before-half time in Alexandria.
“Maybe you want to give us a few days,” Seedorf responded when asked for his plans following a premature end to Cameroon’s title defense.
“The first thing is I’m very sorry for the boys. They have worked really hard and played well but this is football and only one can win in the end. It’s not so important in my future. The important thing is what we have built until now, we’ve improved in many aspects on and off the pitch.
It’s a group that is very united. I hope the people at home can be proud of the fighting spirit we’ve shown. Obviously, the disappointment is really big but this is sport. This is the moment where everyone must say we are united and continue to work for the future.”
previous Dutch star has won only three of nine aggressive amusements since assuming control over the Indomitable Lions nearby associate Patrick kluivert last August and attempted to persuade he is the correct man for the activity. “I’ve delighted inconsistently I’ve been working with this gathering, being in Africa particularly. What’s more, we’ll see what comes later on,” Seedorf said.
“I feel disappointment obviously and also some anger because I thought we were a little bit tense in a few moments, but I have to appreciate the players have done everything they cold today. It was not enough. I repeat that we will stay united and not throw away all the great work the team has done in the last months,” he added.
