Since the Award Ceremony Last Night, a lot of Allegations have been flying round the Internet regarding Emmanuel Amuneke Voting for Mohammed Salah to win the CAF Award ahead of his Country Man, Victor Osimhen. 

These Allegations have drawn the attention of Emmanuel Amuneke who coached Victor Osimhen at the U-17 Level and the Former FC Barcelona Man has made it clear that False News are being Spread across the internet, he went on to explain himself.

“Good morning house, I want to use this opportunity to clear what some of you are saying in this platform. With all due respect to every one of you that I owe with high regard,” He said on Nigerian Sports Village Square moderated by journalist Osasu Obayiuwana.

“First of all, I want you to understand the rumours that you guys are [spreading] concerning me not voting Osimhen. I was never elected to vote.

“On our way to the novelty game that we played in Marrakech here, a former player and captain of the Egyptian national team  – who is preparing himself to become a TV producer in Egypt – with his group, he was debating on the Arabian team, and he raised the question between Hakimi and Salah.

“There was a time Osimhen was mentioned in that discussion. He came to me and asked ‘Hakimi or Salah’. I have to say Salah. And the reason why I said Salah was because I played in Egypt, I lived in Egypt and I know some of the guys there.”

Amuneke continued: “So, there is nothing like voting against Osimhen. Osimhen is our player and our boy. We are happy about what he has achieved, and we hope he would continue to dream and achieve more for the betterment of his career and the betterment of Nigeria.

“It has come to a time in our culture in Nigeria – with all due respect to you guys, we should stop spreading false news and stop creating false impressions among the people. We are journalists, and our responsibility is to inform the public what is right.”

It could be recalled that Amuneke Coached Victor Osimhen at the U-17 World Cup where the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria Emerged as World Champions in 2015. Victor Osimhen during the CAF Award Ceremony Dedicated his win to Emmanuel Amuneke specially for the Impact he has had in his Career.
