Former U-17 World Cup-winning coach, Emmanuel Amuneke has ended his stint with Sudanese side Al Khartoum after the club failed to meet the terms of his contract financially.
The former Super Eagles’ star, who revealed this much in an exclusive interview with AOIFootball.com from his base in Sudan on Wednesday, said the inability of the club to pay him for the last two months led to the mutual termination of his contract.
“The true picture is that after our last game, I had a discussion with our club director and he told me that the team is struggling financially.
“The team is in financial crisis and both the players and coaches have not been paid for two months. He told me the situation and suggested we work on half payment, but of course, you know that won’t be possible,” Amuneke revealed.
Amuneke further added that both he and the club came to an agreement that will suit both parties and end his contract, with Al Khartoum paying him all in outstanding debts.
“We came to an agreement that the best option for both parties is to end the contract and for them to pay me what they are owing and all other things involved in the contract. This is the clear situation of things,” Amuneke said.
He further revealed that he was in no way sacked because of poor performance on the pitch as results are there to prove the club is not struggling in the league.
Amuneke took over Al-Khartoum last November and signed a two- year contract with a mandate to bring continental football to the side.
He has however left the team 4th on the log, with 11 points from 8 games played so far.
