Amuneke hopeful of Super Eagles coaching job
Former Nigeria winger Emmanuel Amuneke has said he is open to coaching the Super Eagles if the opportunity is given to him.
Uncertainty still surrounds the future of current coach Gernot Rohr, as the Nigeria Football Federation is yet to hand the Franco-German tactician a new contract, with his current deal set to expire in June.
In an interview with journalists on social media, the former Barcelona star, who previously coached Nigeria youth sides, the Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles, said he remains hopeful of landing the Super Eagles plum job.
Following his exploits in Tanzania, where he guided the Taifa Stars to their first Africa Cup of Nations appearance in 39 years last year in Egypt, many have touted Amuneke to replace Rohr as the Eagles coach.
The 1994 African Footballer of the Year also guided Nigeria’s U-17 boys to the 2015 FIFA World Cup title in Chile.
