The former Nigeria international stated that his departure from the Sudanese outfit was due to financial problem

Emmanuel Amuneke has disclosed why he left SC Khartoum after just four months of being in charge.

The 47-year-old joined the Khartoum Stadium outfit in November 2017 after signing a two-year contract. Within that duration, he won three matches, drew two and lost three in the Sudanese top-flight.

And the former Nigeria U17 and U20 coach has revealed that the inability of the club to pay him for two months made both parties part ways 'amicably'.

“After going two months unpaid, I had a meeting with the club director on Tuesday and he explained their financial struggles," Amuneke told BBC Sport.

"He admitted difficulties in fulfilling their financial obligations and we both agreed to end things amicably.

"I came with high hopes to help the team, unfortunately we could not complete that objective due to the financial problems.

"I learnt a lot during the three months I spent here, I also got to know more about Sudanese football and gained a huge insight on how it operates.

"I left the club in a good position, in the play-off zone, but I wish I had more time to finish what we started."
