Emmanuel Amuneke Joins Others Eyeing Super Eagles’ Coaching Job

One of those widely tipped to replace Jose Peseiro as Super Eagles coach, Emmanuel Amuneke, has applied for the top post.

The NFF Friday announced the position of the Super Eagles head coach vacant and asked for qualified candidates to apply with a deadline of Tuesday, March 12, 2024.

Frontline Sports journalist Osasu Obayiuwana confirmed on X that Amuneke informed him he has applied to be the next Super Eagles coach.

His application comes amid growing calls for a local man to lead the country’s team away from hiring an expatriate, who in most cases has proved too expensive for the cash-strapped NFF to afford.

The former Tanzania coach has previously assisted Samson Siasia as well as Augustine Equavoen in the national team.

He led Nigeria to win a record fifth U17 World Cup in 2015 in Chile while parading the likes of Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze, who today are established full internationals.

The former Barcelona winger has also worked in Sudan and Egypt as a coach.
