Former Nigeria’s Super Eagles Striker and ex- African Footballer of the Year, Emmanuel Amuneke, has been appointed the new head coach of Tanzania’s national football team, the Taifa Stars.
The 47-year-old signed a two-year deal to take over from Salum Mayanga who was shown the way out for poor results.
His first task will be to get the Taifa Stars’ Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign back on track after a faulty start.
Before Amuneke’s appointment, the Tanzania FA has hired and fired four different coaches since 2014.
The former Golden Eaglets coach will make his debut when Tanzania face Uganda in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifying clash on September 7, 2018.
