Former Super Eagles star, Emmanuel Amuneke has denied rumours of his sack by Egyptian club Misr El-Makkasa, stating that he still remains in charge of the club till the end of the current campaign, AOIFootball.com can authoritatively confirm.
The former Zamalek of Egypt star, who took charge of the club last month, stated from his base in Egypt that he has been offered a bigger task by the club as they bid to expend their brand in other African countries.
“I’m still with the team nobody sacked me; it’s just that the club is a big company here in Egypt and they have their project through the Government here who is encouraging them to invest in other African countries which Nigeria is a part of the plan.
“They want to start with Tanzania, then Mali before coming down to Nigeria and since I’m already in the company, they want me to head the project through their government because my name and that of Abedi Pele came up,” Amuneke explained.
The former Tanzania head coach further revealed that he would, however, have to consider the benefits of the proposal before diving into it, but will see what happens in the coming days whilst stating that he remains in charge of the football club.
The former FIFA U-17 World Cup winner has drawn 2 and lost one of his opening 3 games in charge of the club as they remain 16th on the log after the halfway mark in the league.
