Ex Nigeria international, Emmanuel Amuneke has been appointed the new manager of the Flying Eagles of Nigeria. He takes over from Manu Garba who had a poor outing at the 2015 FIFA U20 World Cup. This is a promotion and reward for Amuneke who steered the Golden Eaglets to victory at the 5th FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile.
Manu Garba will now take the reins as coach of the Under-17s. Recall that Amuneke was an assistant to Garba when the latter won the 2013 U-17 World Cup in UAE.
