Egbo Ndubuisi has been named the Coach of the Year and Sports Personality of the Year in Albania [2020].

Former Nigerian international (goalkeeper), Egbo Ndubuisi has picked up two special awards in Albania after a record-breaking 2020. Egbo made history last year when he became the first African man to coach a team to a top-flight title in Europe.

The 47-year-old led KF Tirana to a league title in Albania’s top division. After making history, Egbo also became the first African manager to manage a team in the UEFA Champions League.

Egbo manged Tirana in two Champions League qualifying games while he also coached the team in a Europa League qualifier.

Egbo was relieved of his duties in November 2020 after a string of poor performances from his side, where they managed three wins in their last 11 games across all competitions.

The former Al Masry of Egypt goalie also enjoyed success as a player with Tirana during his stay between 2001 and 2004, winning the Albanian Cup, Super Cup and Superliga before returning to the club as coach in 2014.

He had 12 caps for Nigeria and was part of the West African side that went to the Africa Cup of Nations in 2000 and 2002.
