NFF may not wish getting Emmanuel Amuneke as the new head of technical department though the topic has made headlines. The information is according to a close confidant of former Barcelona winger. To NationSport on Tuesday, the reliable source dismissed the news according to which the Nigeria Football Federation is about to appoint Amuneke as replacement for Bitrus Bewarang.

That he would not jump at any offer without sorting out a formal contract with anybody that needs his service. And I don’t think that hurdle has been crossed by both parties.

The 49-year-old who led Tanzania to the 2019 AFCON in Egypt, is currently the head of the technical department of Egyptian club Misr Lel Makkasa.

“I’m always grateful that I was given the opportunity of coaching the Golden Eaglets. And I’m always ready to serve in any capacity.” The former Zamalek winger told Television Continental (TVC)
