Nigerian tactician Emmanuel Amuneke has claimed that he is still in charge of Egyptian club Misr El-Makkasa despite being assigned different roles.
In March, there were reports that he had been sacked from his post as the head coach of the Egypt Premier League club but he denied.
In an interview with SPN Africa News, the former Tanzania head coach said that he is very much in charge of the club's affairs but took issue with how his deployment.
“It is not true. I wasn’t sacked. I am still at El-Makkasa. The team has been struggling from the beginning of the season but we are improving,” he claimed.
“The club president wanted me to be in a much higher position but the only thing I disagree with is the manner in which it (the redeployment) was done.”
“I wasn’t informed before that decision was taken. But it is not true that I have been sacked because I am still with the club” he affirmed.
The Nigerian football legend explained that he was in charge of a development and expansion project at the club.
“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,” Amunike said in March.
