And while the federation is yet to announce Super Eagles coach, it has announced a Golden Eaglets coach.

According to the Spain based former striker, who played for Sporting Lisbon football club in Portugal and Barcelona football club in Spain, expressed confidence that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) would eventually appoint the ideal coach for the Super Eagles top job.

According to the former Super Eagles forward, it will be an ideal thing if the NFF goes ahead and appoint a coach based on performances.

Amuneke argued that with a plethora of Nigerian talents scattered across the globe, a lot of professional capacity, technical expertise and consultation would be required to harness the talents. Of course, combine them and achieve the needed balance.

“The Super Eagles’ upcoming World Cup qualification matches against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa and their counterparts from Benin Republic would necessitate the appointment of a substantive coach who would also need some time to put the house in order for best results.

“I am not desperate to be Super Eagles coach, though I nurse the ambition to coach.

“If I have the opportunity to serve my fatherland , I will accept it and deliver my all,” he said.
