African Manager Makes History In Europe

A former PSL player who is now a club manager in Europe has made European history after becoming the first African boss to qualify for a place in the UEFA Champions League.

According to KingFut, Emmanuel Ndubuisi Egbo is the first African football coach to take his side to the Champions League.

The Nigerian, who was a top-level goalkeeper during his playing career, has achieved this incredible feat with KF Tirana of Albania, who will still need to qualify for the group stage of the competition.

Egbo impressively led Tirana, whom he once played for, to their first league title in 11 years this season – the Albanian club's 25th league trophy since its founding.

On top of being the only African manager in history to have achieved this kind of success, the former Moroka Swallows shot-stopper also has the chance to lead Tirana to a domestic double, with the Albanian Cup final set to be played early next month.
