Head Coach of the Tanzania national team, Emmanuel Amuneke has said that he won’t try to force his style on the Taifa Stars but will work to upgrade the country’s football, AOIFootball.com reports.
The former Barcelona star told AOIFootball.com exclusively that he is fully ready for the challenges ahead as he hopes to take Tanzanian football to the next level.
“I’m ready for the challenge and will give my 100% percent best on the job. I know they play a particular kind of football here and I won’t try to impose my own philosophy on them.
“I will just work with what is on ground and try to understand their football and try to bring out the best,” Amunike said.
When asked how he plans to juggle the job of the senior and junior teams, Amuneke said that he was up to the task.
“I believe I can manage the situation to work together because the main aim of the TFF is to develop at youth level rather than winning at all cost.
“For our qualifiers next month, to be honest, I’m not under pressure because we have to assess what we have on ground, but I’m optimistic of a positive result,” Amuneke concluded.
The former U-17 World Cup-winning coach signed a two-year deal with the Tanzania federation earlier this week and will also supervise both the U-17 and U-20 teams.
