Sudanese club Al Khartoum Watani have agreed to pay Emmanuel Amuneke compensation fee after both parties severed their ties on Tuesday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Amuneke who confirmed his exit from the club to Completesportsnigeria.com, said he was owed two months salaries while in charge of the club he only joined in January.
“I wasn’t sacked. The director of the club called me to a meeting to explain why we have not been paid and he suggested that we take a pay cut as their major sponsors have not been supportive,” Amuneke told CSN.
“He was very sincere which I appreciate so well.
“But they (Al Khartoum Watani) agreed to pay what is being owed and of course what’s binding in the contract which was signed between both parties.
“The director was sincere and plain in his meeting with me on the dire financial conditions of the club. So there was no point staying on. I wasn’t sacked like they’re claiming here in Sudan.”
There were reports early on Wednesday from Sudan that Amuneke had been sacked due to poor results.
Under Amuneke’s short reign, Watani recorded three wins, two draws and three defeats in the Sudanese top flight.
