Former winger Emmanuel Amunike has been sacked as coach of Sudanese side Al Khartoum SC following a string of bad results.

The former manager of Nigeria U20 joined Al Khartoum in November on a one-year deal. He had some fine results in the pre-season matches but his side have later shown poor performances on the field 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 stand 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.
