Emmanuel Amuneke Weeps

Former Super Eagles player and Golden Eaglets coach, Emmanuel Amuneke has expressed his bitter experience with the fans from northern part of Nigeria over his selection during the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile as coach.

The ex-Barcelona FC winger and winning coach said; “I feel I’m still persona non grata to most football fans in the northern part of Nigeria over my decision in 2015 to drop several players.”

“I know what I experienced when I was coaching in the U17s. I was public enemy number one; particularly, people in the North, a lot of them believe I am an enemy to them. But none have asked the players that did not make it, what really went wrong and why they could not make it.”
