Imama Amapakabo has debunked reports of his sack from the coaching crew of Nigeria’s Super Eagles.
This comes after the former Rangers coach was left out of the Nigerian contingent to France on Monday night.
Amapakabo told journalists in Abuja that he was only ‘excused from the trip’ because he was assigned other roles ahead of the South Africa clash in the 2019 Afcon qualifier.
It has been reported that technical adviser, Gernot Rohr had axed Imama as his assistant.
But in a swift reaction, Imama described the reports as untrue and unhealthy.
The Nigerian contingent arrived in France on Tuesday morning for the friendlies against Corsica on May 26 and Togo on June the 1st.
It included Chief Coach, Salisu Yusuf, goalkeeper trainer Aloy Agu as well as NPFL players- goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa, midfielder Sikiru Olatunbosu, Adamu Hassan and striker Steven Odey.
The foreign based players are expected to join the team’s camp in Ajaccio.
