Bonfrere Joe endorses Amuneke for Super Eagles job

Former Super Eagles technical adviser, Jo Bonfrere has endorsed Emmanuel Amuneke for the team’s vacant coaching job.

The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, declared the position vacant following the expiration of Jose Peseiro’s contract.

Peseiro was in charge of the three-time African for 22 months.

The Portuguese guided the West Africans to second position at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Amuneke, who is one of the coaches favoured to take over from Peseiro confirmed he has already applied for the job.

Bonfrere believes Amuneke has what it takes to lead the Super Eagles.

“Yes, I agree Nigeria needs a local coach at the moment. Not a foreigner,” Bonfrere told VON.

“But the country will have everything to gain if the authorities should appoint Emmanuel Amuneke for the job. I know him very well.

“He has a very strong mentality. He has the discipline and technical savvy to achieve results. In fact, if the Federation calls me to provide technical backup to Amuneke, I will gladly accept the task.”
