Super Eagles’ Assistant Coach, Imama Amapakabo, has said he has put the drama of his exit as Technical Adviser of Nigeria Professional Football League champions Rangers International behind him and is fully focused on his national team job.
The former Enyimba assistant coach’s contract was terminated by the management of the Flying Antelopes following a string of poor results and a whole of drama ensued with the Enugu government insisting he was suspended and not sacked.
But the former Golden Eaglets’ goalie has exclusively told AOIFootball.com that he is currently holidaying and working on contributing his quota to the success of the Super Eagles and of course, scouting for players for the CHAN team.
“I’m currently holidaying and thinking about the Super Eagles. I have been doing a lot of movements locally and also trying to contribute my quota to the national team. Already, we have names compiled for the CHAN team. So it’s only the Super Eagles that’s on my mind at the moment,” Amapakabo revealed.
Speaking further, the former Rangers boss debunked media rumours that he has been contacted by Kano Pillars and Rangers, saying such reports were false.
“It’s not true. No one in Pillars or even Rangers contacted me. So, all you’re reading in the newspapers and online are not true. I’m just having a time out and when a new job comes, everyone will know,” the Okrika-born coach said.
Amapakabo and other backroom staff of the Super Eagles will begin their Shenghen visa applications later this week ahead of the team’s camping in France. The Super Eagles will open camping on May 23rd in Paris ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa.
