The former Tanzania handler will now take charge of the Egyptian Premier League side following the sacking of Ahmed Hossam Mido El Makkasa have confirmed the appointment of
Emmanuel Amuneke as their new manager.
The announcement comes days after Ahmed Hossam Mido was sacked by the club following a poor run of results.
Mido was kicked out after the club’s 3-1 defeat to
Pyramids FC to sit in 15th place in the Egyptian Premier League from 12 games played.Amuneke has been out of management since July 2019
when he was dismissed by Tanzania .
Recently, he was snubbed for the Zambian senior national team job given to Serbia’s Milutin Sredojevic.
The 49-year-old is no stranger to the North African
country having featured for five-times Caf Champions League winners, Zamalek.And the management would be hoping the former
African Player of the Year revives the club’s fortune,
and ultimately avoids relegation.
Jamar Omar is expected to lead El Makkasa against
Smouha in Monday’s Egyptian top-flight game billed for
the Border Guard Stadium – as they chase their first win
in their last eight games.
After the game, the Nigerian takes charge of the team and his first assignment will be against El Entag El
Harby on February 8.
