FK Tirana manager Ndubuisi Egbo is delighted to make history with the Albanian Superliga club, reports Completesports.com.

He is the first black and African coach to win a major European league, as well as the first African to qualify a team for the UEFA Champions League.

Tirana will also take on Teuta in the Albania Cup final on August 2.

“When I left the club (Tirana) and they saw what I was doing with other teams in the course of my goalkeeping coaching career, i was invited also to come because they know that I have the mentality, character, personality and philosophy that the team need,”Egbo stated while answering questions on popular Nigeria Sports Whatsapp forum NSM.

” I was given the opportunity from the goalkeeping coach to the assistant coach before they asked me to take over as the head coach.

““When you work in a certain company or organization you need to do your optimum best. Be a man of good character and good behaviour to leave your footstep on a sand of time. This is exactly what I did when I played for the team.”

Egbo was appointed Tirana manager in December 2019.
