Nigeria football legend, Emmanuel Amuneke, has been appointed by the Tanzania Football Federation as the new national team coach.

The appointment was confirmed the Tanzania Football Federation on their official Twitter handle, with Amunike being unveiled by TFF President Wallace Karia in Dar es Salaam on Monday.

The 47-year-old, who has been without a job since leaving Sudan’s Al Khartoum SC in March, signed a two-year deal with the East Africans, replacing former coach Salum Mayanga.

He will work to help his team get their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign back on track.

Amunike won the African Cup of Nations with Nigeria in 1994 and the Olympic gold with the Super Eagles two years later.
