I Wasnt Sacked Based On Poor AFCON Outing- Amuneke

Published

on

By Augustine Akhilomen

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 fallen 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.”

My Action Was Ugly Against Crystal Palace – Nunez

Published

on

Liverpool striker, Darwin Nunez has broken the silence after he was sent off in Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace on Monday.


The Uruguayan apologised for his headbutt on Crystal Palace defender, Joachim Andersen.

He admitted it was a bad attitude from him and promised such would never happen again.

Nunez said he will ‘learn from his mistake’ after the 23-year-old lost his cool and attacked Andersen and got a straight red card.

Liverpool still managed to draw the game after Luis Diaz cancelled out Wilfried Zaha’s opener.

“I am aware of the ugly attitude I had. I’m here to learn from my mistakes and it won’t happen again,” Nunez tweeted.


The South American added in another tweet, “Apologies to Liverpool all. I’ll be back.”

A red card for violent conduct is expected to earn Nunez a three-match suspension.

Billionaire Elon Musk has said that he is buying Premier League giants, Manchester United.

Musk, who was in the midst of a political ideology discussion, ended up tweeting that he is buying the struggling club.

He wrote, “Also, I’m buying Manchester United ur welcome”.

Musk is worth around $260 billion, meaning that he could easily afford buying the Old Trafford outfit.

The Red Devils’ fans are no longer comfortable with the current club’s owners, the Glazer family and have been protesting, asking them to go.

Manchester United are languishing at the bottom of the Premier League table after two embarrassing defeats from their two opening games.

The club had a market capitalization of over $2 billion dollars as of this Tuesday’s stock market, according to Reuters.
