  • In the battle of life, you don’t bow, you conquer. I expect coach Amunike should have hold on for a while.

    Eyaah After Talking Tough You Couldn’t Even Boast Of A Point? It’s Terrible But live Goes On!!! CSN The Caption Should Be: Amuneke Has Been Sacked And Not Quit Okay!

    • @Nwanchukwu, this your comment has no sense. Winning matches has a lot to do with the quality of players available.

    Quite unfortunate….!
    You have done well for yourself Mr Amuneke…you have earned respect. At least you are not sitting at the ‘beautiful gate’ of NFF secretariat waiting for jobs like some people.
    Coaches are hired to be fired and fired to be hired. That’s the nature of the job. Even those who have won trophies have ended up being fired by their employers…so its no big deal.
    One thing I’m quite sure of is that you wont be out of circulation for too long. I wish you well in your future endeavors.

  • I would like to see him take our under 20 job, take us to the next under 20 AFCON asks under 20 world cup. His brief to be to develop our youth for the next 4 years.

    Migrate with them to the under 23 after the Olympics in 2020 and look to take the senior job either for the next world cup or immediately after.
    Continuity is the key to success.
    He is proven with our under 17, let him take one step at a time

    If not for Amuneke, those two words TANZANIA and AFCON have no business together in a sentence. To me, Amuneke has already made his mark with the Tanzania team. To qualify them for Afcon is a MONUMENTAL achievement. They should perhaps erect his statue outside one of their stadia in recognition of his achievement.
