Amuneke, New Super Eagles Coach – NFF

Former international Emmanuel Amuneke has been selected as the next head coach of the Super Eagles by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
Augustine Eguavoen was also retained as Interim Technical Adviser.
The development, according to NFF General Secretary Dr Mohammed Sanusi, is part of efforts to restructure the national team’s technical committee.
“The NFF Board has approved a recommendation from the Technical and Development Committee to keep Augustine Eguavoen as Technical Director/Technical Adviser (interim) while Emmanuel Amuneke takes over as Chief Coach of the Super Eagles,” the statement adds.
“Salisu Yusuf will be the 2nd Assistant Coach/Chief Coach of the CHAN team and Joseph Yobo will be 3rd Assistant while Aloysius Agu remains the Goalkeepers’ Trainer.”
Sanusi added: “We acknowledge and appreciate the interest that Mr Jose Peseiro has shown in Nigeria Football during our very cordial discussions and have absolutely no doubt about his capacity. We believe that perhaps in the future, there could be an opportunity to work with him.
“However, in view of the positive performance of the Super Eagles at the just-concluded Africa Cup of Nations which has given hope to Nigerians and boosted our confidence in the present coaching crew to qualify us for the World Cup in Qatar, we have decided to accept the recommendation of the Technical and Development Committee to retain the Eguavoen-led coaching crew and strengthen it with the addition of Emmanuel Amuneke.”
