Amuneke Set For New Challenge In Sudan
Former Nigeria U-20 coach Emmanuel Amuneke is all set to begin another chapter in his coaching career.
The ex-international is billed to assume duty at Sudanese club, Al Khartoum Watani on Friday January 5.
Amuneke was in November hired as the new head coach for the ambitious capital-based club ahead of forthcoming season.
The former Nigeria U-17s and U-20 coach is now stepping into the shoes of Ghana coach, Kwesi Appiah, who took over the reins as Black Star's head coach for the third time.
“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.” Amuneke said during his unveiling
Among other successes as a coach, Amuneke led Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets to a fifth title at the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup title in Chile.
The Sudan Premier League will kick start in March 2018.
