Amuneke Picks Queiroz Best Coach  He Worked With, Snubs Mourinho, Van Gaal

Former Super Eagles winger Emmanuel Amuneke has picked Carlos Queiroz as the best coach he worked with during his playing career.

Queiroz signed Amuneke from Egyptian giants Zamelek in 1994.

They won the Portuguese Cup in their debut season and spent two years together before parting ways in 1996.

Amuneke secured a move to Barcelona in 1996 where he linked up with Sir Bobby Robson during his first year at Camp Nou, and he won the Copa de Rey in the 1996-97 campaign.

Louis Van Gaal succeeded Sir Robson at the helm the following season with Mourinho retaining his work as the assistant coach in the Spanish club.

Amuneke admitted the impact of the coaches in his career but Queiroz manager stands out because of his belief in him.

“I have worked with many coaches like James Peters, Carlos Queiroz, Louis van Gaal, Sir Bobby Robson and Jose Mourinho,” he told Spn Africa.

“If I am to select one, I will choose Queiroz who I worked with while I was at Sporting Lisbon.

“He knew what I could do and believed in my abilities.

“However, I appreciate all the coaches I worked with because I learned a lot of things from all of them.”
