Qatari club El Jaish have rubbished reports claiming that they in negotiations to sign Emmanuel Emenike from Turkish giants Fenerbahce.
Reports from Turkey during the week claimed that former Ivory Coast manager Sabri Lamouchi, who is the current coach of Doha side El Jaish, had asked the owners of the Qatar Crown Prince Cup champions to sign the former Nigeria striker.
But El Jaish administrator Ismail Ahmad has stated in clear terms that they have to plans to bring Emenike to the Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium.
“El Jaish management did not enter negotiations with Emmanuel and all rumors are incorrect,” Ahmad told the club’s official website
“El Jaish currently has four high level professional players including Lucas Mendes, Abdelrazzaq Hamedallah, Sardor Rashidov and Romario. The club management is committed to their contracts and has no intention to replace any of them during the new season” he added.
Emenike’s career has been on a downward trend ever since he returned to Turkey to don the colours of Istanbul giants Fenerbahce after spending a season at Russian Premier League outfit Spartak Moscow.
His last spell was in the English Premeir League where he had an uneventful loan spell with London side West Ham; scoring just two goals in a Cup game all through his stay.
