Cameroon head coach Clarence Seedorf was coy about his future with the Indomitable Lions after the defending champions crashed out of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in the Round of 16 on Saturday.

Concise News reports that the Central Africans were silenced 3-2 by Nigeria in a devastating result in Alexandria.

The result has led to speculation the Dutch legend could be shown the door after his AFCON failure. However, Seedorf himself is uncertain of what the future holds.

“Maybe you want to give us a few days,” he told the media.

“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.”

The next edition of the AFCON (in 2021) is scheduled to be hosted by Cameroon.
