      Better….Before ndi ‘our owns’ will come for you….LMAOoo

      No wonder he was practically begging for the national team job on the pages of CSN last week.

      • Amunike knows Notting every empty all his heart is on super eagles shameless man.

  • Ako Amadi 1 year ago

    This is a man who says he is wualified enough to coach the Super Eagles

  • Don’t always blame the cook, check the ingredients.

    What kind of players were assembled for him to coach?

    I still believe he can do excellently if allow to coach Super Eagles of Nigeria that is loaded with talents.

    NFF should just allow him to be totally in charge of the team including the players invitation.

    • Dr. Drey 1 year ago

      Hehehehe…..now that it concerns your owns, we shouldn’t blame the coach…LMAOoo

      Amunike’s last 3 jobs:

      – Demoted to academy coach at El maqqassa after 1 month

      – Appointed to add “tactical sagacity” to the SE after 2022 AFCON disgrace but ended up being flushed out with the others after failing to qualify for the WC 2 months later

      – Fired from Zanaco after 7 months after leading one of the biggest clubs in Zambia to within 4 points of the relegation zone.

      My brother, all of these were ingredients problems…???

      If Amunike were to be one White Amunikov or Amunikovic or Amuniksen or Mac Amuniky from Europe and has this sort of profile, would you advocate for our national team to just be gifted to him just like that…..???

      This is the kind of profile someone said our white coaches do not have/cannot match….LMAOoo

      Someday we will all stop lying to ourselves in Nigeria.

      • God bless you brother!!

        The “tactical sagacity” reference has me in stitches.
        This is hilarious stuff.

    The way clubs are sacking coaches anyhow nowadays ehn. Na waya.

  • chuks haifa 1 year ago

    A good coach will always grind out something. Thats what makes you a good coach. Transform and utilize the players available to their strengths. Let’s not give this guy super eagles for now. He still needs to learn more tricks.Sadly, Nigeria has no quality coach at this moment. Maybe in the next 5 to 10 yrs we can see one.

    A good coach wil look at the players he is going to work with .ask for the target off the owner . And agree on the task before signing on a contract.
    U can’t just be going around leagues because u are a good coach u wil automatically wil the league with unknown set of untested and unskillful local players.

    Let Zanaco now go on an win the league let’s see una. After Peseiro and Rohr lost to minnows with almighty Super Eagles.

    • Dr. Drey 1 year ago

      Ndi “fail with their owns”…LMAOoo

      So because he can’t win the league with one of the most successful and decorated clubs in Zambian football history, the next thing is to lead them into relegation waters….??? A team whose worst showing in a decade is 7th position now just 4 points above the relegation zone…LMAOoo

      At least Rohr lost to minnows and still always reached his targets…..LMAOoo…your guadiolas never lose to minnows yet never qualify for anything…LMAOoo

      • pompei 1 year ago

        Chai, you’ve reminded me of that awful slogan again.
        The stuff of nightmares.
        It has kuku come to pass, as they wished.
        If only Rohr had been allowed to finish what he started, it might have been Nigeria ending up with the trophy at the last Afcon. It might have been Nigeria at the semifinals of the just concluded mundial.
        Our own apologists, una do well ooo!

    The truth of the matter is that I have never been in favor of Mr. Emmanuel Amunike coaching our national team. Not because of this sacking by a Zambian club but because of the performance of his Tanzanian team at The Nations Cup a few years ago.
    Yes, he did qualify them for The Nations Cup at the time after their more than three decades of failure but their performance at that tournament was lifeless.
    I still believe we should look for local solution to our national teams struggles. Knowing the mentality of the people you’re working with is very important. A Mr. Sunday Oliseh, a Mr. Ndubuisi Egbo could be brought in and be melded with a Mr. Ogunbote who knows the local terrain well.
    I believe we still have a few good coaches in Nigeria. Watch Ikorodu fc play and you will marvel at the quality of their players and clear manifestation of good coaching. Why not bring their coach Mr. Sodiq Dabiri and some of his coaching staff into the national coaching pool even at the youth level?
    We’ll never be able to end the hiring of foreign coaches for our national team if we don’t expose our coaches to good coaching methods, hire them, pay them well and promptly and give them enough time on the job.
    A local coach won us a silver medal at The Nations Cup way back in 1984 with a truly group of young and inexperienced players at a time when qualifying for the tournament was far more difficult than during Mr. Rohr’s era, never mind winning a medal at the tourney itself.
    Local coaches have won us Nations Cup Gold, Nations Cup Silver, Nations Cup Bronze, qualified us for The World Cup on several occasions, gotten us out of the group stage.
    Why can’t we just believe in ourselves regardless of the challenges?

    And some delusional fans still think consider this guy for nationsl team job.
    This guy’s coaching career is nothing to write home about, he needs to go back to coaching and management school to learn how to be a professional manager.
    He is begging for SE job because he knows he is not qualified for the job. Not surprised, he got hired by crooked Picnic.
