Sudanese side, Al Khartoum, sacks Amuneke

Former Super Eagles’ star, Emmanuel Amuneke has been sacked as coach of Sudanese side, Al Khartoum SC, following a string of bad results, reports Egyptian website, kingfut.com.

The former manager of Nigeria’s U-20 team joined Al Khartoum in November on a one-year deal. He had some fine results in the pre-season matches but his side’s performances on the field later became poor, as they gained just 11 points from eight 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 the Nigerian coach. The Al Khartoum-based side now stands fourth on the league table while Ahli Meroe hold the second spot in the league below leaders, Merreikh Al-Fasher.

The former Zamalek legend previously led Nigeria to the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup title. He played for Zamalek from 1991-1994 before moving to Portuguese side Sporting CP and later FC Barcelona and represented Nigeria in the 1994 World Cup – the first time Nigeria appeared in the competition.
