Emmanuel Amuneke Gets New Job 48 Hours After Zambian FA Snub

Former Super Eagles forward Emmanuel Amuneke has got his coaching career back on track after being appointed head coach of Egyptian Premier League side Misr El-Makasa to replaced sacked coach Ahmed  Mido. 

Amuneke coached Nigeria’s U17 FIFA World Cup winning team of 2015.

The 49-year-old was appointed head coach of Tanzania in 2018 where he guided them to their first Africa Cup of Nations since 1980.

Amuneke had a mutually agreed parting of ways with Tanzania following their group stage exit at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Without a job since his Tanzania gig, the former African Football of the Year applied to fill the vacant head coach role left by Sven Ludwig Vandenbroeck who was sacked in February 2019, after failing to qualify the Zambian National team for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

However, just days after he was overlooked for the role with former Uganda and Zamalek SC manager Milutin “Micho” Sredojevic announced by the Zambian FA the Chipolopolo new coach,  Amuneke got the nod at the Egyptian club-side. 

El- Makasa are in 15th position on the league table and are goals away from the relegation zone
