Amuneke: They told many lies to stop me

Emmanuel Amuneke has reacted to losing out on the Super Eagles top coaching post, insisting many lies were said against him so that he will not be appointed.

“You see, I never wanted to join issues with detractors because I am a very serious person who is engaged working and learning. But, you see, they have said many falsehood against Amuneke,” he told PromptNews

“These jobless guys have even accused Amuneke of unethical conduct, saying he was directly involved in the transfer of several of the Golden Eaglets players under him but all lies”.

Amuneke: They told many lies to stop me

He added: “They succeeded in smearing my name in the media because of the Super Eagles job.

“They can continue with their propaganda, but I will remain disciplined. It’s not a do-or-die job. I have even congratulated my good friend Finidi and wished him well on the job. 

 “All those allegations made in the media especially online (bloggers) because of the Super Eagles job are obviously not true.

“This is how they are murmuring that I made Nigeria not to qualify for Qatar FIFA World Cup when I was neither the chief coach nor drew any team list. So, how was I the cause of the team’s failure?

“They are fabricated lies merely to deceive the Nigerian people. 

“Perhaps, my crime was that I raised talented young players from the U17 and U20 for Nigeria; players like (Victor) Osimhen, (Samuel) Chukwueze, (Kelechi) Nwakali and others who have become the mainstay of Super Eagles today, yet these detractors do not see any merit in my contributions to the status Nigeria has acquired today in the African football.” 

Amuneke insisted he will continue to be his own and reach the heights in his career destined by God. 

 “But those who recommended candidates for the Super Eagles job know I will not be easily bullied. I cannot compromise standards,” he insisted.

“I know there is still bad blood with these officials, but it’s fine. We will continue to strive to be better and one day our work will earn us our right to lead.”
