  • Bravo!!! I’ve always believed in Anuneke’s coaching ability. From Khartoum FC in Sudan to FIFA technical study group and now to the Tanzania senior team, Anuneke is the real deal. He should be the one assisting Rohr. His World Cup winning U17 team in 2015 played some of the most beautiful football by a Nigerian or even African side.

    I rate this guy ahead of any other indigenous Nigerian coaches. At leasr, FIFA and outsiders know his worth. Nigerians don’t yet.

    Good one, I wish success in all your endeavours Coach Amunike.

  • It is news that gladdens my football-heart. That was how Stephen Keshi (of blessed memory) gained valuable coaching experiences outside Nigerian shores.

    More greese to Amuneke’s elbows.

  • Amuneke will be successful in Tanzania. That I am very sure.

    Thumbs up Amuneke. You’ve earned respect….unlike Some people who will be waiting for NFF to give them coaching jobs.
