Amuneke: El Makkasa Won’t be  Relegated Under My Guide⭐

Emmanuel Amuneke, has told Completesports.com that his immediate priority is to save Egyptian club, Misr El Makkasa from relegation in the ongoing 2019/2020 Egyptian Premier League.

Makkasa are currently 16th in the 18-team Egyptian Premier League table with Al Ahly as runaway leaders with 45 points after winning all their 15 matches so far played with two games in hand, one of which is the Cairo derby versus Zamalek which will be decided on Monday, February 24.

Amuneke joined the Egyptian side in January 2020 as a replacement for Ahmed Hossam Hussein Abdelhami, who is popularly called Mido, following poor run in the domestic top flight.

With the 2019/2020 season on mid season break, Amuneke who penned a renewable one and a half year contract on arrival at the club, says that his immediate task is to steer the club to safety, insisting that the club will be rescued at the close of the current campaign.

“When I came, the club was in deep relegation position. My immediate priority is to ensure their safety in the campaign,” Amuneke told Completesports.com.

Amuneke has taken direct charge of two games since his arrival. One was a 1-0 defeat in a Cup game and a scoreless draw against Enppi in a league clash.

The former Zamalek and Barcelona winger had previously had coaching spell at Khartoum SC, Sudan and Tanzania national team- the Taifa Stars, as well as leading Nigeria U17 squad, Golden Eaglets, to win the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile.

Amuneke remains optimistic of achieving the El Makkasa’s immediate goal which is to get out of the relegation zone.

“I’m confident we can achieve that objective. We’ve started the movement upwards. With the league on break, we have to use the opportunity to work on the players’ physical and mental fitness,” Amuneke said.

“Everything lies in the hands of God. He knows how and why He does His things, especially in bringing me back to Egypt.

“I’m privileged to be amongst the first African coaches, outside of Egyptian origin to coach a club here.”

He added: “Don’t forget that I played here in Egypt and for me to come back now in the capacity of a coach is an honour.

“So, the success I make of it will open doors for, as many others as possible. But everything lies in the hands of God,” Amuneke concluded.

Amuneke is in good company of his former Zamalek teammates as assistant coaches at Misr El Makkasa.

    Its only time that will tell where this man would be in a few years time and then some people would think he just fell from heaven and started performing magic. Success comes through painstaking efforts and patience not through the back door. U can’t buy experience with money. He’s taking his time to build and equip himself for the future whilst equipping himself with the necessary badges and exposure he needs in his career as a coach. There is always a price to pay to attain success and he’s already paying his dues. More grace to you, Amunike.

    See profile….. They didnt even mention him being a former coach of Bridge boys and NEPA Fc as well as assistant coach of the U17 national team back in his homeland. Ask some people to show us the coaching profile of the Asst COACH of the Nigerian national team now, they will tell you he had 100 caps for SE. Dasall…!!! Lolz

      [email protected] drey, the thing tire me o. The point is, corruption, nepotism, jealousy and wickedness have made some us not to understand the meaning of “shame” again. when it was said (celebrated) that the GDP of Nigeria grew by 2.4 percent last year while that of other countries like Niger, Benin, chad etc grew by 6.7 percent and 4.9 percent respectively, someone asked a very important question on telly: what is actually wrong with Nigeria??? Honestly, really don’t know what is wrong with this country.

      Lolz. Ah, Dr. Drey You have a point though but what works for one person might not be working for another. In Yobo’s case, he might surprised you o.

      Let’s wait and see. But I would have preferred Yobo to under study coach Rohr and some one but this is Nigeria, anything can happen. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

       
  • “I’m privileged to be amongst the first African coaches, outside of Egyptian origin to coach a club here.”

    Carry go! The next indigenous coach of the SE (probably after Rohr). You’ve proven yourself over & over again – within and outside Nigeria more than any other Nigerian coach at the moment. Yobo can at best only be an assistant to you then cos las las water go find im own level.
