Tanzania sack Emmanuel Amuneke

Former Nigeria international, Emmanuel Amuneke, has been sacked from his role as the head coach of Tanzania national team.

His contract has been terminated after the Taifa Stars’ poor performance at the African Cup of Nations.

The East Africans were eliminated in the group stage of the biennial tournament, losing all their games to finish bottom of Group C.

“The Tanzania Football Association (TFF) and the national team coach, Emmanuel Amunike, have reached a joint agreement to terminate the contract between us,” read a statement on the TFF website.

“TFF will announce the TAN coach who will lead the national team for Chan matches.

“TAN coaches will be announced after the Emergency Committee meeting on July 11, 2019.”

Emmanuel Amuneke had helped Tanzania qualify for the AFCON for the first time in 39 years.
