OPINION: Ex-Barcelona Star Will Be A Good Replacement For Rohr

Many of the football supporters have voiced their dissatisfaction about Rohr over the past months, as they believe the national team has been retrogressing under his management.

Although there is no official communication yet, regarding the sacking of Gernot Rohr as the head coach of the Super Eagles, his days seems to be drawing to an end. This is due to the string of poor results against the Central African Republic.

Remember that, many names are already being brandished with people of varying interests, making a case for their candidates.

However, according to my point of view, the perfect replacement is the ex-Barcelona star, Emmanuel Amuneke.

Emmanuel Amunike is a Nigerian football coach and former professional football player who played as a winger.

Most importantly, being an assistant Golden Eaglets coach and then the Chief coach, which in both cases he won the World Cup, makes him suitable for the job.

Another reason to my opinion is that, Amuneke did quite well while handling the Tafia Stars of Tanzania with whom he achieved an amazing record which will always make him a hero in Dar es Salam, hence it's worthy to say that, Amuneke will be responsible for nurturing the key players of the current Super Eagles team.

With Amuneke in charge, he should be able to get the best out of Kelechi Nwakali, another one of his players with whom he conquered the world at the U-17 level some years back.

Beyond the listed reasons, Amuneke will most likely be a cheaper and effective choice, going by the limited time available, before the AFCON and the World Cup playoffs.
