Former Nigerian international winger, Emmanuel Amunike says he is relishing his new appointment as Zanaco technical consultant.
The 1994 AFCON winner was unveiled on Thursday in Lusaka on a long-term deal.
“I can guarantee you that we will work hard, at times you will see me play on the field with players so that we can give them confidence and that they can be better than us coaches. I want to help the players to grow,” Amunike said.
“But we have to bear in mind that whatever we do in life, it goes with a process. Before someone runs you first have to walk, before you can walk, you have to stand.”
Amunike is returning for his second high-profile appointment after steering the Taifa Stars of Tanzania to their first Arica Cup of Nations appearance in 39 years at the 2019 tournament.
The former Zamalek star will be seeking to steer the club back to winning ways after losing their last two games.
The Nigerian will begin his reign on Saturday with a Lusaka derby between Zanaco and defending FAZ Super League champions Red Arrows at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka..
