Lagos - Golden Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amuneke has cast
doubts over his impending ‘promotion’ to the U20 as assistant coach, as he
claims the NFF have made it look like they have done him a favour.
The Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick had
announced shortly after the Golden Eaglets won the FIFA U17 World Cup that Amuneke would be ‘promoted’ to work as
assistant to Manu Garba at the U20, while still retaining his position as U17
Speaking in a radio interview on Thursday, Amuneke thanked
the NFF for their gesture, but said he has other important things to think

“One has to ask a lot of questions because it is not just
about announcing people because the thing in Nigeria is that they think they
are doing you a favour by giving you a job,” Amuneke said.
“They make it look like you don’t know what you are doing,
like they are just doing you a favour but I am a professional and I am glad for
the opportunity to serve Nigeria.
“I’ve been here for four years and we have been able to do
what we know and also set a structure, so it’s not for me to continue. Where
I’ll be tomorrow, I don’t know.
“It is a good thing from the president (Pinnick), but it is
not just about announcing it and one will not be there. There are a lot of
things one has got to put into consideration. I have my own family that I have
to take care of and a lot of things I have to do, but it is a good gesture from
him,” he submitted.For
