Amuneke expresses readiness to take over Super Eagles

Former Super Eagles winger, Emmanuel Amuneke has said he is willing to take charge of the team following the uncertainties surrounding the future of head coach, Jose Peseiro.

Peseiro led the Super Eagles to a second-place finish at the recently concluded 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The contract of the Portuguese, however, ended with the AFCON and there are calls for him to be replaced by a local coach.

Amuneke, who once worked as assistant coach to Austine Eguavoen in the Super Eagles said he is ready to serve the country again.

“I am a Nigerian, all my life I have served Nigeria as a player. If Nigerians now find me fit to add value to the team, of course, it is a welcome development,” Amuneke said in an interview on Central Television.

“But for now it is not necessary to talk about this issue.

“We have to support the team and other Nigerians, they are going through a lot of sadness.

“We all want the best for our country, the best for our football. This has to be respected.”
