Former Tanzania coach, Emmanuel Amuneke says he doesn’t feel sad being sacked by the Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) due to the team’s poor performance at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Amuneke, who qualified the Taifa Stars of Tanzania for the AFCON 2019, failed to pick a point in the group stage that consists of Kenya, Algeria, and Senegal.
In his reaction, Amuneke stated that coaches are meant to be hired, fired and he happens to have fallinng victim as well.
“We talked about our contract, we looked at contents, and of course, there is always a common ground.
“They (TFF) say they want an indigenous coach. And of course, this business is about coming and going.
“I’m happy with my players, I’m proud of their achievement even in defeat. Morocco coach was relieved of his duty. Same also for Egyptian coach and Uganda. That’s how it goes and one has to move forward.
“I was somewhere before I came here (Tanzania) and of course, life is not static, it evolves so one has to think forward.”
The ex-Nigeria international became the fourth coach to part company with the Taifa Stars, after they were eliminated from the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Amuneke was fired, after both parties met to review his contract.
