Amuneke appointed coach of Sudanese club



Amuneke dumps Sudanese club over unpaid salaries

Former Nigeria international, Emmanuel Amuneke has been appointed as new head coach of Sudanese top division club, Al Khartoum Watani ahead of the forthcoming season.

The former winger and Nigeria’s U-17s and U-20 coach signed a two-year deal at the club to replace Kwesi Appiah who took over Ghana’s national team for the third time earlier in the year.

Confirming the appointment to Complete Sports, the former Barcelona star said, “Yes I have been appointed.”

He added: “It’s a challenge for me and I believe my wealth of experience as a player and a coach will help the team.

“The target is a herculean one but we will try as much as we can to break the dominance of Al Merreikh and Al Hilal, who between them have won every league title since 1970 except in 1992.”

The 46-year-old led the Golden Eaglets to a fifth title at the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile, but failed to lead the same set of players at the U-20 level to the 2017 African Youth Championship in Zambia.
