Super Eagles legend, Emmanuel Amuneke has picked ex SA coach, Carlos Queiroz over Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho, as the best coach he worked with during his football career.
Emmanuel recently came out to admit that the coaches he worked with while he played were all very impactful but Carlos is his choice because he had complete faith in him.
According to Amuneke, he cherished his time with Queiroz because the manager believed that he could deliver on the pitch and had total confidence in his footballing ability.
He added that Pep Guardiola was intelligent as a footballer so he is not surprised that he is doing very well as a manager today.
His words, “I have worked with many coaches like James Peters, Carlos Queiroz, Louis van Gaal, Sir Bobby Robson and Jose Mourinho,”
“If I am to select one, I will choose Queiroz who I worked with while I was at Sporting Lisbon.
“He knew what I could do and believed in my abilities.
“However, I appreciate all the coaches I worked with because I learned a lot of things from all of them.”
On Pep, “He always showed the capacity and intelligence to understand and interpret the game,”
“Guardiola was given the best conditions to work irrespective of the fact that he did not have so much experience in the beginning.
“The people he worked with deposited confidence and belief in him and it paid off.
“As a footballer, Pep was quite intelligent and I am pleased he is doing very well as a manager today.”
