Abuja - Super Eagles assistant coach, Daniel Amokachi marked
his 41st birthday, though in a quiet manner.
The strong former Eagles forward, who turned 41 on December 30,
2013, said he was not in the mood for celebration, even as he declared that God
has been wonderful to him.
In the morning match against Kano Pillars, he stayed coy
over the development until Team Administrator Dayo Enebi Achor, with the
connivance of Media Officer Ben Alaiya, hinted Head Coach Stephen Keshi that
his assistant was a birthday boy.
Amokachi smiled away and acknowledged the fact but declared
that having celebrated his 40th birthday in grand style he will wait for
another milestone to celebrate.
“I must say I give thanks to Almighty God for always being
there for me. He has blessed not only me but my family and even the team we
work for, what more can one ask for except to thank Him and ask for long life
and more prosperity”, he said in a statement.
“Honestly, God has been very good to me and I can’t ask for
more from Him. I just want Nigerians to help me praise God on my birthday”.
