-Urges ‘Da Bull’ To Resurrect Career
Former national team coach, Fanny Iyakhere Amun has described as a welcome development that chances given Super Eagles assistant coach, Daniel ‘Da Bull’ Amokachi to handle the squad for a couple of international friendlies at the start of next year.
While making his views known on the report that emanated from Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), the acclaimed ‘Transformer of Talents’ said the opportunity has arrived for Amokachi to revive his coaching career.
Amokachi’s coaching duties nosedived after he failed to qualify the home-based national team for the first Championship of African Nations (CHAN) in a qualifier against lowly Niger Republic, but he will now lead the Eagles in international friendlies against Mali and Cote d’Ivoire to once again prove his coaching competence.
Amun, who guided the Golden Eaglets to victory at Japan ’93 FIFA World Cup, stated that God will give the present NFF board the wisdom to settle the issues still lingering with Stephen Keshi, but said seeing Amokachi take charge is also a move in the right direction.
“Amokachi is a respected personality in the team as well having played diligently during his days and been around the team for a while as an assistant coach.
“Weeding off completely the makeup of the technical crew of the national team is not always needed. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a golden opportunity for him to prove himself as the leader of the team and I wish him all the best,” said the former NFF general-secretary.
