SEEDORF LINKED WITH WATFORD JOB

Former AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf has been linked with a move to Watford according to reports. Watford manager Javi Garcia has come under increasing pressure this season after a string of poor results this season.

Despite that the season is just two games in, there have been speculations within the local media that the Spaniard could be close to a sack if the run of poor form continues. Garcia was one of the managers that was praised by the media due to his good work at the club.

The Spanish tactician was able to get the best from his players utilizing a 4-4-2 formation that played to the strengths of captain Troy Deeney. He was also able to coax consistent performances from former Barcelona ace Gerard Deleufou.

Watford were in the running for Europe late last season with Wolves just peeping the club to the last European position. Watford also suffered a heavy defeat in the finals of the FA Cup to champions Manchester City.

However, it is the run of form that started last season that could be the nadir for Garcia as Watford are among the teams with the lowest points in their last 15 games.

Seedorf meanwhile has not fared better looking at his coaching pedigree so far. After stepping into the hot seat at Milan, the Dutch legend could not inspire the team and was subsequently sacked. His last role was with the Cameroun national team.

He was unable to lead the African nation to retain their title losing in the quarter finals to Nigeria and he was relieved from his duties after the tournament.

it could be that he would experience better joy in the Premier League with Watford. Garcia still has time to prove himself but the clock is running thin on the Spaniard as Seedorf lies in wait.

They are not the best only in terms of skills but also are motivated and understand the depth of playing for the nation. Each and every player should be happy and play for Cameroon with pride said, Seedorf.

The latest matches are considered as 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers however not in the case of Indomitable Lions as they have been qualified as hosts automatically. Seedorf had drawn his first match with 1-1 last month with Comoros and has already done all it takes to build a team for the finals next year. There are some players who may be thinking that they can still give it some time until the 2019 AFCON but Seedorf won’t let that happen.

In addition, he also said he is talking with Joel Matip, the Liverpool defender on returning to the Indomitable Lions.

Seedorf Will Be On The Right Track With Cameroon

Clarence Seedorf was appointed by Cameroon in 4th August and it seems like a decision taken majorly by status and not by on-field factors. The 42-year-old did enjoy the football career that most of his peers envied about. He won 4 Champions League titles in addition to 5 major leagues. Many people talked about his lack of experience in the African game could make it a risky choice as Cameroon’s coach. Without Arnaud Djoum and Sebastien Siani, two of many high profile champions cut from the team. Choupo Moting did catch the eye in the forward line and Karl Toko Ekambi battled in replacement for Vincent Aboubakar who was injured. Ekambi has 3 goals in previous 4 seasons for FC Porto.

The team selections have also raised many questions as Seedorf redeemed his previous mistake to begin Gaetan Bong before Ambroise Oyongo by bringing the latter later on. It was Oyongo from Montpellier who ultimately offered assistance for the equalizer of Bahoken, while Bong did tolerate a tough time. He represented a sensitive presence during pressure and offered not much going forward. Cameroon’s performance was a reminder of how the coach should have made efforts to recall some of the best stars of the squad. Ultimately, Seedorf was impressed with the way things turned out and shared his views.
