Amuneke rejects assistant role to Rohr

Former Golden Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amuneke has emphatically declared he is not interested in becoming an assistant to Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr.

There are reports that an assistant is been shopped for Rohr but Amuneke wants to be counted out of such a role because he is of age and should no longer be seen as a rookie coach.

Speaking during an interview with Brila, Amuneke said becoming an assistant to Rohr is ‘belittling’

He said: “Rohr is the coach of Nigeria, I was once a coach of Tanzania not the youth team, so why must I come back to assist Rohr. Why are we trying to belittle ourselves.”

Amuneke qualified Tanzania for the 2019 AFCON which was their first since the 1980 edition held in Nigeria.

He led the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria Nigeria to win the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile
