Al Khartoum Sacks Emmanuel Amunike as Coach

Emmanuel Amunike has been removed as the coach of Sudanese side Al Khartoum SC following a string of bad results.

The former Nigeria winger joined Al Khartoum in November on a one-year contract. He had some fine results in the pre-season matches but his side have later shown terrible performances on the field as they gained only eleven points from 8 matches in the Sudanese Premier League.

The sacking came after a 1-3 loss against the newly promoted team Ahli Meroe, which led the club to terminate the contract with Emmanuel Amunike. The Al Khartoum-based side are now fourth on the league table while Ahli Meroe are second in the league below leaders Merreikh Al-Fasher.

Amunike was a former Zamalek legend who led Nigeria to the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup title. He played for Zamalek from 1991-1994 before moving to Sporting CP and later FC Barcelona.  He represented Nigeria in her first ever FIFA World Cup in 1994.
