The Nigeria Football Federation recent announcement of Emmanuel Amunike as new coach of the Nigeria U-20 team have thrown the football house into confusion.
After the announcement Manu Garba who was demoted to the U-17 from his U-20 role decline the offer of returning as coach of the U-17 as directed by the NFF.
On his part Amunike spoke to owngoalnigeria.com from his base in Spain to deny the appointment insisting he is yet to be informed and he wasn’t contacted before the announcement was made.
“I am not aware of my recent appointment as the coach of the U-20 and I dare say that is not how to employ a coach as negotiations were not done before the announcement” He told owngoalnigeria.com.
He however didn’t sound like he was going to reject the offer but if he does then the NFF will starting looking for coaches to handle the U-20 and U-17 national team.
