NIGERIA – Former Nigeria International, Emmanuel Amuneke, has announced that he is open to new job offers.
This is coming barely four months after he left his role as coach of Tanzania by mutual consent.
The 1994 African Footballer of the Year, who had previously managed his Nigeria’s U-17 team and Sudanese club SC Khartoum, is now seeking a fresh start.
“I’m very open to any positive offer that comes because I’ve spent the last few weeks learning new ideas and methods,” Amuneke told BBC Sport.
“As a manager, you need to be honest with yourself and even though Tanzania is a closed chapter, I picked up valuable lessons from that job.
“I want a fresh start and it has to be something that is right, and hopefully the ambition will align with mine.”
Amuneke had previously been linked with the Super Eagles job by various media. However, the former Barcelona and Portugal’s Sporting Club player is not restricting himself to the continent.
“We must respect those who currently hold coaching posts in Nigeria and elsewhere. Personally, I am just looking forward to the next challenge with optimism.
“Whether it is in Africa or anywhere that something comes up, you need to be available for it if it’s something you want to do and believe in,” Amuneke said.
