Ex-Nigeria international, Emmanuel Amuneke, has been relieved of his job as the head coach of Tanzania national team by mutual consent.

The Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) confirmed this in a statement on their official website on Monday.

The termination of the contract of the former Super Eagles player came on the heels of the East African ouster from the group stage of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

The Tanzania side lost all three group stage matches –  2-0 to Senegal, 3-2 to Kenya and 3-0 to Algeria.

“The Tanzania Football Association (TFF) and the National Team Coach, Emmanuel Amunike, have reached a joint agreement to terminate the contract between us,” the statement read.

“TFF will announce the TAN coach who will lead the national team for Chan matches.

“TAN coaches will be announced after the Emergency Committee meeting on July 11, 2019.”

Emmanuel Amuneke had helped Tanzania qualify for the AFCON for the first time in 39 years.
