Biography: Nigerian winger who won domestic trophies in his home country and Egypt before successful spells in Europe with Sporting CP and Barcelona. In 1994 Emmanuel was named African Footballer of the Year and was a member of the 'Super Eagles' team that competed in the World Cup and won the African Cup of Nations in the same year. Later became a scout for Manchester United and qualified as a coach. His first post came to an abrupt end when he was apparently fired for "over gross insubordination".
