1994 World Cup star Daniel Amokachi has been appointed as Technical Director of JS Hercules with immediate effect, the Finnish third tier club have announced via their official webpage.
Prior to this appointment, the former Nigeria international managed the side for 14 months, and he has been promoted because Hercules higher-ups reckon that he can be of tremendous assistance with his strong personal brand and connections.
''This decision allows me to proceed with my media work and bring more global recognition to the club, where the coaching role limited me in some aspects from doing what I can do for the club to move forward,'' explained Amokachi to the club's official website.
''It was hard for me and for the players but we all know that this is better for the team.
''I still go to the training sessions and I will continue to help them with one on one sessions to improve their football skills.''
First team coach Timo Viitanen has taken on the responsibility of coaching the first team.
