Imama Amapakabo has insisted that he is satisfied with his achievement as a coach in the outgoing year.
Amapakabo was in charge of home based Super Eagles, which failed to qualify for next year’s Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) in Cameroon. The team lost 3-4 aggregate on aggregate to Togo.
The disappointment was followed by other defeats in the West Africa Football Union Cup (WAFU).
Also under his watch, the National U-23 team failed in this year’s U-23 AFCON, which was meant to be the qualifiers for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics football event.
However, the former Rangers coach believes 2019 has been great for him.
“It is the best year for me,” Amapakabo told Brila FM.
“Imama Amapakabo had the opportunity that many others had never had. Assistant coach of the Super Eagles, head coach of CHAN Eagles, head coach of U-23, whatever the results are, all glory to God I think it’s a blessed year for me.
“I am a coach and I try to do my best at all times and get results as much as I possibly can.
“Like I say all the time I’m like a gravedigger, the day I win games I dig four shovels, the day I lose I dig 200.”
The NFF has since refused to renew his contract as the head coach of the home base Eagles and the national U-23 team.
However, it is not clear if he will continue in his role with the Super Eagles main team.
