Amunike reached an agreement with Tanzania football authority to end his stay in charge of the country ‘s senior national team and said he’s proud of what he achieved with team.


“We talked about our contract, we looked at contents, and of course, there is always common ground,” Amunike said.


“They (TFF) say they want an indigenous coach. And of course, this business is about coming and going.


“I’m happy with my players, I’m proud of their achievement even in defeat. Morocco coach was relieved of his duty. Same also for Egyptian coach and Uganda. That’s how it goes and one has to move forward.


“I was somewhere before I came here (Tanzania) and of course, life is not static, it evolves so one has to think forward.”


Amunike added that he’s leaving his role with the tiny East African nation in order to move forward.
