The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has congratulated Emmanuel Ndubuisi Egbo on becoming the first Nigerian and African to oversee a domestic title triumph with a European club.

Egbo, former Nigerian goalkeeper has coached his team, KF Tirana to Albanian top tier league glory with three matches yet to be played.  The gaffer has also led the team to UEFA champions League qualification.

Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick, President of the Nigeria Football Federation on Monday sent a message to Egbo saying, “I congratulate you and wish you only the best. This is also to say that we are very proud of your wonderful achievements”.

The former goalkeeper replied: “Thank you Sir, I appreciate it so much. We thank God for his Grace and goodness. It is not my achievements; it’s our achievements as Nigerians, Africans and the Black race. Glory be to God Almighty. Na God win Sir. Thank you again for the best wishes”.

Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, NFF General Secretary commended Egbo for the feat and expressed optimism that the achievement of Egbo will inspire other Nigerian coaches to global exploits.

Sanusi  said, “It was with a huge sense of pride that the NFF and the entire Nigerian Football family learnt of your exemplary achievement as the first-ever Nigerian, Black and African Coach to win a major European League, as you have steered KF Tirana to the Albanian top tier championship with few matches left in the on-going season. In the process, you also became the first African to qualify a team for the UEFA Champions League competition.

“The fact that KF Tirana was unable to win any silverware since the year 2018 until your arrival in December 2019 puts your accomplishment in proper perspective.

“Certainly, your rare character traits of sobriety, quiet confidence, seamless application and effortless brilliance, so evident in your days with the Senior National Football Team, Super Eagles, steered you and your team to glory. This achievement is no doubt a marker for other Nigerian Coaches, including your fellow ex internationals, that by working assiduously and diligently in a noble way, they can indeed go out there and break the proverbial glass ceiling.

“On our part, we wish you and KF Tirana an enriching and fulfilling experience in the UEFA Champions League, where you are bound to come across much tougher encounters, but you have already demonstrated that you have the capacity to be unflappable when the going gets tough”
