Amuneke working hard despite not being paid by NFF

23 July 2015, 10:12

Lagos – Golden Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amuneke has explained how he has been striving to ensure he produces a good team that will represent Nigeria at the FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile in October, despite being owed backlog of unpaid salaries by the Nigeria Football Federation.

Speaking to News24 after it emerged he is being owed by the NFF, Amuneke said he has been working day and night, under the rain and sun, to ensure he builds a team capable of representing the country when the time comes.

“We are doing the best we can and everything humanly possible,” he began.

“We have been here since May and we have been under the rain and the sun from 9am to 5pm every day and maybe we are not complaining because we know what we want to achieve.

“We know it takes a process to achieve something in life because suffering brings endurance and endurance brings character and character brings hope and what we are doing now is to prepare ourselves as a team.

“Hopefully when we get to Chile we will be able to give a very good account of ourselves because the road to success is always under construction and nothing works in a day,” Amuneke stated.
