U23 AFCON: Failed Amapakabo hands future to NFF

Coach Imama Amapakabo, who led Nigeria to the U23 Africa Cup of Nations where his team could not make it out of the group stage, has handed his future to his employers.

Amapakabo is favoured by the Nigeria Football Federation as he has coached more than one national teams in three months.

He is also one of the assistants to Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr.

However, the former Rangers coach has failed to deliver results on the national front. He has now handed his future to the NFF after Nigeria crashed out of the U23 AFCON in Egypt.

“It is totally out of my hands. We have to look at the future; this has ended, whichever way we want to look at it.

“And it depends on what the federation wants in terms of going forward,” he said at the post-match conference after his goalless draw against South Africa could not secure Nigeria a place in the semi-final.

It is the second time in about three weeks that a team handled by Amapakabo has failed Nigeria.

He handled the domestic Super Eagles that was bundled out of the qualifying tournament by Togo recently. His team also failed to make appreciable impact at the WAFU Cup held last month in Senegal.
