Tirana fired him, but Egbo is elected "Coach of the Year" in Nigeria

Tirana fired him, but Egbo is elected "Coach of the Year" in Nigeria

Tirana won the 25th champion title last year, a title that corresponded to the 100th anniversary of the club's founding. In these 100 years of its existence, Tirana has won 25% of Albanian football titles, something extraordinary for a club. But over the years the white and blue environment produces even more crises and in recent years these internal crises have not allowed the teams to maintain stability and be at the top of the championship. The coach who made Tirana the champion was the Nigerian Emanuel Egbo, who, despite the success he had with the white and blues both in the championship and in the European Cups, was fired within the first weeks of the race, leaving a bitter taste to all sports fans who praised the African for the work done and the success he had with white and blue. Then came Nevil Dede and then Orges Shehi, but the team has not found peace and is not in as good a position as last season. But while Tirana did not properly evaluate Emanuel Egbona, the technician is respected in his country, Nigeria, where he was announced the coach of the year.

Evaluation of Egbo

As we said, in Tirana they did not evaluate properly, not fully recognizing the merits that restored the champion title in the white and blue house after 11 years, turning the 100th anniversary of the founding of the club into a great celebration. Emanuel Egbo was fired from the bench of Tirana at the beginning of this season after only 3 matches in which he recorded 2 negative results, a loss to Teuta in the championship and the elimination from the Albanian Cup by Korabi, and now the white and blues are suffering the consequences of this change with the team. who is not responding on the field and is currently out of seasonal targets. However, in his native Nigeria, they know the value of Emanuel Egbo, who became the first African coach to win a title in Europe. Egbo was recently named the Nigerian Coach of the Year for 2020 at The Ballers Awards 2020 gala evening, where the best Nigerian footballers and coaches of the last year are honored. In Tirana, they must have regretted that they fired him anyway, Egbo can now enjoy his achievements in his debut season as the first coach at the head of a great team like Tirana.

The victory with Vllaznia was a positive turning point for Tirana

A victory is sometimes enough to make the big turn, but for that to happen it takes a "heavyweight" victory. Exactly such a victory was reaped by Tirana in the weekend we left behind, which removed for the moment the shadows of the severe crisis that has gripped this season, expressed with the sixth position in the ranking of the Superior Category. It against Vllaznia was not just an ordinary victory for Tirana, it was a success achieved in a derby match. Consequently the value is even greater and goes beyond 3 points. Before the challenge, the technician Orges Shehi said that he wants the team to go down on the field with the mentality of a champion team. And so it happened. Maybe the fact that the red and blues are not experiencing a good moment, influences the white and blues to get 3 points, but in a race the reasons and reasons to achieve something are worth a little, the key is to meet the goal. Excess costs in the markets should be translated into results. After two consecutive losses, this success against Vllaznia was the ideal answer for a team like Tirana that is experiencing a season with ups and downs. Of course, this success should serve as a motivation for the future because if this does not happen, then the satisfaction of 3 points in the Albanian derby will quickly fade. Quality in the ranks of the white and blues is not lacking, despite the fact that you lose the class of a striker like Ernest Muçi, but the individual can not make a difference if the team does not have the spirit of the group.
