AFCON 2019: Amuneke breaks silence after being sacked by Tanzania
Former Tanzania coach, Emmanuel Amuneke, has said he is proud of all he achieved with the team, after he left the job on Monday.
The ex-Nigeria international became the fourth coach to part company with the Taifa Stars, after they were eliminated from the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Amuneke was fired, after both parties met to review his contract.
“We talked about our contract, we looked at contents, and of course, there is always a common ground.
“They (TFF) say they want an indigenous coach. And of course, this business is about coming and going.
“I’m happy with my players, I’m proud of their achievement even in defeat. Morocco coach was relieved of his duty. Same also for Egyptian coach and Uganda. That’s how it goes and one has to move forward.
“I was somewhere before I came here (Tanzania) and of course, life is not static, it evolves so one has to think forward,” Amuneke said according to SportingLife.
Amuneke guided Tanzania to its first AFCON tournament after 39 years, but failed to win a single game.
