Speaking to NationSport, he revealed: “I will be engaging with coaches in three Cities in Nigeria and I’m looking forward to it. I love sharing knowledge and there’s a lot in modern football to expose these coaches to.

 “I hope the coaches come with an open mind to learn a lot because I’m prepared to bless them with some fantastic details about the latest techniques in modern coaching.”


Amuneke was in charge of the Golden Eaglets when they defeated all-comers to win the 2015 FIFA World Cup.
