Former Super Eagles forward, Emmanuel Amuneke has revealed that developing the younger generation and helping build their talents are his motivation as a coach, AOIFootball.com reports.
The two-time FIFA U-17 World Cup winner, who spoke to AOIFootball.com exclusively, stated that football has always been a joy for him and he would definitely want to use his wealth of experience to inspire the upcoming generation.
“Football has been my joy and all my entire life I have been involved in the game, from playing as a footballer at the highest level and then now adventuring into coaching. For me, football is all that gives me joy.
“I see myself as a teacher and I would want to teach my students so that they can progress and that makes me happy on the job,” Amuneke said.
Now working with Egyptian side Misr El-Makasa, the 49-year-old, however, hopes to keep learning and growing on the job in order to lead the nation to glory at senior level after twice conquering the U-17 both as an assistant and head coach.
His exploits have seen him take up jobs in Sudan with Al Khartoum after also guiding Tanzania to their first AFCON in nearly four decades before moving to the Egyptian League in the winter.
