Former Super Eagles international Emmanuel Egbo has earned African legendary status after making KF Tirana champions of Albania.

The Aba-born coach took over in December 2029 with the club sitting on eight position, before going on to lift the championship with 69 points from 34 games.

“I was happy we emerged champions of the league. I wasn’t following the statistics, it was when people were talking about it that I realized the enormity of what we have achieved,” Egbo told NSM as reported by Brila.

“When I left the club as a player and they saw what I was doing with other teams in the course of my goalkeeping coaching career and I was invited also to come because they know that I have the mentality, character, personality and philosophy that the team need and I was given the opportunity from the goalkeeping coach to the assistant coach before they asked me to take over as the head coach,” added the 46-year-old.

Egbo’s entire coaching experience has been at Tirana where he began as a player. His playing career included spells at El Masry SC (Egypt), Julius Berger, and NEPA Lagos (both Nigeria).
