I am not interested in Super Eagles job – Emmanuel Amunike


Former Nigeria international Emmanuel Amunike insists he is not interested in the Super Eagles coaching job.

Amunike, who is currently the sporting director of Egyptian club El Makkasa, has recently been linked with the Super Eagles job with current handler Gernot Rohr yet to reach an agreement with the Nigeria Football Federation.

The 49-year-old however insisted that he is not thinking about managing the Super Eagles for now and is solely focused on his job with El Makkasa.

“I am not seeking for Super Eagles job, I have made myself clear, and I don’t need to be repeating myself,” Amunike told Brila FM.

“Nobody knows my life more than God like I said if it is the will of God one day, I will coach the national team. You have a coach there in the team, and I have made it very clear, the coach himself has done very well so there is no need for baseless rumours,” stated Amunike.

“I have my own challenges that I have to face and see, I hope that post Covid-19 we will be in a position to see if we can reform our team and then get back to the plans we have in mind.”

Amunike led Tanzania to their first appearance at AFCON in 2019 and was sacked after his team failed to progress beyond the first round.

The former Barcelona star was part of the Super Eagles side that won AFCON 1994 in Tunisia and a member of the Dream Team that won Africa’s first gold medal in football at the Atlanta 96′ Olympic Games, scoring the winning goal against Argentina in the final.
