Al Khartoum appoint Zamalek legend Emmanuel Amunike as coach
Sudanese side Al Khartoum have hired former Nigeria winger Emmanuel Amunike as their coach starting next season.
Amunike played for Zamalek from 1991-1994 before moving on to Portuguese side Sporting CP and later FC Barcelona. He represented Nigeria in the 1994 World Cup, the first time Nigeria appeared in the competition.
The 46-year-old manager famously scored the winning goal in the match between Nigeria and Argentina in the 1996 Olympics as Nigeria took home the Gold medal.
“I am very happy to return to Sudan, after I visited it last year with the U20 Nigeria National Team,” Amunike commented.
“I will try to do good work, and will put in much work with the team,” he concluded.
Al Khartoum are currently in sixth place in the Sudanese Premier League with 46 points from 29 games. They have won 12 games, drawn 10, and lost 7 others.
