Nigerian footballing legend Emmanuel Amuneke revealed that he is keen to ply his trade outside of Nigeria, reporting that he is open to coaching Egypt’s Zamalek SC.

Amuneke led the Nigerian U-17 squad to the World Cup trophy in 2013 before leading them to a fifth U-17 title two years later in Chile.

After being promoted to U-20 squad manager, his results weren’t as promising, partly due to off the field issues. Now, the former Zamalek player is welcome to coming back to the club, this time as a manager.

He told BBC Sport, “For the past six years, I’ve been engaged with the Nigerian youth teams to produce a new generation and I’m happy we’ve done that. I’m a coach that is open to every option. If I am opportune to go to Zamalek that will be a happy elevation but there is a man in charge at the moment.”

He continued, “I am open to any offers. In football, you cannot limit yourself and wherever I get an offer I will evaluate it.”

Amuneke played for Zamalek from 1991 to 1994, scoring 26 goals in 71 appearances, before moving on to Sporting CP, and, eventually, Barcelona.
