Emmanuel Amunike in Action
Former Misr El-Makkasa head coach Emmanuel Amuneke revealed his new role at the club after being replaced by Ehab Galal.

Following a disappointing start to their season under Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’, El-Makkasa appointed former Tanzania national team manager Emmanuel Amuneke in hopes that he can save the club’s season.

However just one month into his new position, El-Makkasa announced that Egyptian manager Ehab Galal will replace Amuneke.

The club then released a new statement revealing that the former Nigeria international won’t be leaving as he became the director of the club’s academies across Africa.

Talking to BBC Sport, Amuneke explains details regarding the academies project and further elaborate his new role with the club which is a better one for him.

" I’m still with the team, there is no sack involved as reported by some media outfit earlier, Makkasa Football Club is a massive group and the past year has seen them trying to create projects across the continent,” said Amuneke.

" When I was still working with the Tanzania National team, they came to the country to discuss with the government about investing in the east African country. They plan to invest in Tanzania, Mali and possibly in Nigeria in the future.

" We’ve been discussing about the academies, we are still looking at the contractual options because this is a long-term project and I wouldn’t want it to affect any other coaching opportunities in the future.

" The decision to bring in a new coach is only logical and some level of professionalism because accepting to work on this big project means it will be very difficult for me to combine both roles.

" We shall see how things pan out but I am still here working with Makkasa,” he concluded.

El-Makkasa currently 16th on the league table with 14 points from 17 games, just three away from bottom-placed FC Masr. They were also knocked out of the Egypt Cup in the round of 16 by El-Gaish.
