Former Cameroon coach Clarence Seedorf and his assistant Patrick Kluivert are demanding $8 million from Cameroon citing wrongful dismissal from their jobs.
The two coaches served less than a year in their respective roles and were dismissed after Cameroon were knocked out of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) quarter-finals by the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
As per Cameroon Press Agency, Seedorf and Kluivert have approached FIFA asking 5 billion CFA francs ($8 million) as severance package.
“The two Dutch coaches claim from the Cameroonian authorities the sum of 5 billion CFA francs as a severance payment,” reported the Cameroon Press Agency.
They claim they were unjustly dismissed before the first course of their four-year contract was not realised after they were appointed in August 2018.
Cameroonian authorities are yet to react to the Dutchmen’s claims.
Seedorf took charge of 10 games, winning three, drawing four and losing three.
Cameroon have since appointed Portuguese coach Antonio Conceicao as their new coach.
