Seedorf admits he wouldn't have turned down an offer to coach Real Madrid
- Seedorf says that he couldn't have turned down Real Madrid if they offered him a coaching job.
- It would be 'like a homecoming' for the ex-Madridista.
- Seedorf is currently working with Cameroon, trying to establish the team as the real power at the international arena.
Ex-Madridista Clarence Seedorf has been linked with Real Madrid job after Zinedine Zidane's departure last summer, but that hasn't worked out for the former Dutch international.
Nevertheless, Seedorf is still dreaming about the return at the Bernabeu at some point in future, as he revealed in the recent interview to Marca.
On being linked with the Real Madrid job last summer:
"I consider Real Madrid my home and, to be honest, I would have accepted the job. There were contacts but the decision was made to go in a different direction. I'm young, so I hope to return in the future."
On what coaching Real Madrid would mean to him:
"It would be like returning home. I already had a similar experience when I was AC Milan coach, so the feelings would be similar."
On why he left Deportivo La Coruna he coached last season:
"Time and goals. I arrived very late and despite significant improvements which everyone could see, we missed easy chances. These goals could have changed the direction of our story, but we didn't have the little bit of luck required."
After the Depotivo job Seedorf lasted less than five months in each of his three previous teams but in August 2018 the Dutchman was appointed as a new manager of the reigning Africa Cup of Nations champions Cameroon.
On what are his goals as Cameroon coach:
"My goal is to help Cameroon become a respected national team on the world stage. We're going through a reconstruction process and the match against Brazil in November gave us important signs of progress that we've already made."
On if he hopes to return to Spain one day:
"Yes, Spain is one of the best leagues in the world, so yes, I would be open to an opportunity if one arises in the future."
