“We all understand the situation in Europe,” Amuneke told Saturday PUNCH.


“They find it difficult to give the confidence to a black man to coach in their league.

“It’s very annoying and frustrating that you did your coaching qualification in Spain but when it comes to the opportunity you are not getting.

“But at the same time, you cannot lose hope in what you believe; you just have to stick to your plan.”
