Emmanuel Babayaro defends Daniel Amokachi for rejecting Super Eagles Assistant Coach Job under Finidi George

Former Nigerian international, Emmanuel Babayaro has defended Daniel Amokachi after he rejected the Super Eagles assistant coaching job under Finidi George

Amokachi is not part of the Super Eagles camp in Uyo ahead of their upcoming 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin.

Babayaro, a former teammate and friend of Amokachi and Finidi revealed that the former Everton striker turned down the job because of “demeaning terms” including no salary, while his involvement with the team will be based on the discretion of the head coach.

“Amokachi was appointed Super Eagles assistant coach under these conditions –and his appearance in any Super Eagles engagement is on needs basis and subject to the head coach’s discretions,” claimed Babayaro on his Facebook page.

“How demeaning can these conditions be?

“Amokachi said yes to the appointment as the Super Eagles assistant coach but an emphatic no to the demeaning conditions attached thereto.

“And yes, the conditions were only just communicated recently.”
