Ex Super Eagles star becomes Nigeria’s first coach to win the League title with Europe’s top side

Nigerian professional football manager Ndubuisi Emmanuel Egbo has become the first African coach to win a title with an European side.

This was after the former Super Eagles goalie helped his club Tirana to win the 2019/20 Albania League title in a remarkable style.

Egbo and his wards are also in the final of the Albania Cup and this could be another landmark achievement for the 46-year-old if his side should win it.

Tirana fans are all in joyous momentum with this latest achievement which they have been looking for since the past 11 years.

The result means that Tirana is now seven points ahead of Kukesi on 62 points with two games left to play, currently on 69 points.

Another big record for Ndubuisi Egbo is that next season his club will play in the Champions League and he is the first African to qualify a club for the prestigious contest.

Egbo started his football career with defunct Nitel FC of Enugu and was among the Super Eagles stars who campaigned at the 2000 and 2002 African Nations Cup.
