Head Coach of Sudanese top division club, Al-Khartoum Watani, Emmanuel Amuneke, believes his team still needs to improve if they are to break the stronghold of Al-Merrieikh and Al-Hilal in the Sudanese league.

The former Eagles’ star, who spoke to shortly after his team’s 4-0 bashing of second division side Sporting Club Shabia in a friendly match, said he was happy with the attitude and overall play of his team but believes there is still a lot of work needs to be done before the kickoff of the new season.

“It’s always a nice feeling when you get your first win in a new club, though it was a friendly match, I am happy the boys played to instructions and the result is there for all to see.

“We have to work more on the physical and technical aspects of the team, hopefully with the more friendly matches we play I am confident the boys will adapt well ahead of the new season,” Amuneke added.

The former U-17 world cup winning coach further revealed he was keeping his transfer targets close to his heart as he does not want to rush into any panic buy.

“For now I am happy with the players I am working with; if the need arises for new players to come in I will definitely add them to help beef up the team,” he concluded.
