Ex-Zamalek player Emmanuel Amuneke revealed that he would like to manage Zamalek, if given the chance.

The former Nigeria international joined Zamalek in 1991, before going on to score 26 times in 71 league appearances for the Whites, where he was also crowned league champion.

The winger made 27 appearances for the Super Eagles between 1993 and 2001, scoring nine times.

Following Zamalek’s loss against Al Ahly, club president Mortada Mansour had claimed that Emmanuel Amuneke alone with three other managers were being considered for the managerial role.

This was followed up by Mortada claiming that the Nigerian got in touch with Zamalek so that they would consider him for the job, something which Amuneke later confirmed to KingFut.

“If am giving the opportunity, I will like to coach Zamalek. It is my club,” Amuneke stated.

Zamalek president Mortada Mansour is best-known for his hobby of changing managerial staff frequently due to result, something which Amuneke was not phased by.

“With hard work, Zamalek can be great,” Amuneke said.

If Amuneke was to be chosen for the seat, he would be the first sub-Saharan African manager to take helm of a club in Egypt, to which Amuneke concluded by stating: “There’s a first time for everything.”
