Emmanuel Amunike

 

Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) and the national team head coach Emmanuel Amunike have parted ways following the Taifa Stars’ failure to progress past the group stages at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Amunike has been coach of Tanzania August 2018. At AFCON 2019 in Egypt, Tanzania Taifa Stars lost all the three group matches against Senegal, Kenya and Algeria.

The country’s federation said in a statement; “The Tanzania Football Association (TFF) and the National Team Coach, Emmanuel Amunike, have reached a joint agreement to terminate the contract between us.

“TFF will announce the head coach who will lead the National Team for CHAN matches.

“The head coach will be announced after the Emergency Committee meeting meets on July 11, 2019.

“The search for the new Coach has started immediately.”

Amunike becomes the third coach to be dismissed after Egypt and Uganda also parted with their head coaches after a disappointing campaign in AFCON 2019.
