Daniel Amokachi

Where is Daniel Amokachi now?

Forever remembered by Everton fans for substituting himself onto the pitch when he was only ordered to warm up and then scoring two goals, Amokachi retired from playing professional football in 2000 at the age of 28.

In retirement, Daniel Amokachi has pursued a career in football management and has had spells in club management with Nigerian sides Nasarawa United and Enyimba.

Amokachi has spent most of his managerial career with the Nigerian national side working as assistant coach between 2007 and 2015. He also had two games as interim manager.

In 2015 Daniel Amokachi relinquished his duties with the national side to take on the manager’s job at Nigerian club side FC IfeanyiUbah.

He was only in the role for five weeks before leaving the club after some poor results and irreconcilable differences with the owner.

Since 2016, Amokachi has been working in Finland as head coach of Finnish second division side JS Hercules.

Amokachi’s twin sons have followed their father into professional football and currently play in the Turkish league.

In July 2017 Amokachi will be representing Nigeria in Star Sixes, a new six-a-side indoor international tournament at the O2 in London featuring some of the world’s most iconic footballers.
