Coach of Enugu Rangers Imama Amapakabo has reacted angrily to stories making the rounds, that he has been sacked by newly appointed Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr.
Reports broke out last night, that the Franco German has ordered the former Nigeria U17 goalkepper to stay away from the team, as he is comfortable with the three assistants he brought in.
Imama and Salisu Yusuf were appointed as assistant coaches to the German by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), but the German flew into Nigeria with three of his own assistants in Jean- Luc Royer,Nabil Trabelsi and Everton Ferreira.
Aside from goalkepper trainer Alloy Agu, Rohr picked Yusuf as the only Nigerian trainer he wants in his coaching crew according to various reports, but Imama says he left the camp out of his own volition, not because he was asked to leave by the German.
” I left to prepare my team for today’s game against MFM FC, we are in a title race, we need all points we can gather, am shocked to hear stories that Rohr has sacked me, even the NFF are not aware” Imama said to our correspondent on phone.
” Hopefully I will return to the team after our game, maybe that will give people a better picture of what am saying”.
