Former Super Eagles star, Emmanuel Amuneke has declared that he is ready for a fresh challenge in his coaching career, as handler of Tanzania’s senior national team, and says he is happy with the opportunity to gain more experience in the job.
While describing his appointment by Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) is a huge honour for him, the 1994 African Footballer of The Year said he is eager to make the best of his new duty post and help The Taifa Stars regain their lost glory in the continent.
The 47-year-old player-turned-gaffer, who was named Taifa Stars’ new coach on Monday, in a two-year agreement with the TFF, said he wants to help Tanzania qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
It would be only the second time Tanzania would reach AFCON, after making it to Nigeria 1980, but Amuneke stated on social media that he wants to make the best of his chance to develop football in the East African country.
Amuneke stated: “As a coach you always want to take on new challenges and keep improving. Honoured to be given this opportunity to develop Tanzania football. #futurefootball #Tanzania #Bethemovement #TMC.”
