1. Who is Emmanuel Emenike? Highlights of his career
The Nigerian-born Emmanuel Chineye Emenike is a professional football player who played as a striker for the Super Eagles of the Nigeria national team.
Emenike began his football career with the lower division club Delta Force, where he made a shocking revelation on how he used to attend training on foot despite the long distance. His service to the club was free as the club complained of a lack of financial support from the Delta State government.

He began to earn money when he moved to Mpumalanga Black Aces, a first division club in South Africa, in 2008. Emenike was part of the team that lost in the Nedbank Cup final against Mamelodi Sundowns. He later moved to F.C Cape Town in May 2008.

Emenike took his footballing trade outside the African continent when he secured 1-year loan deal with a Turkish side Karabukspor in 2009. His spell at the club was quite successful as he went on to score 16 goals in the TFF First League, winning the title and getting the club promoted to the Super Lig.
During his time with Karabukspor, Emmanuel Emenike was involved in a legal battle with Haber Turk, a newspaper in Turkey, over possible “malicious” and “misleading” information, claiming his age to be seven years different from what is displayed on his travel passport.
The Nigerian attacking player later joined Fenerbahçe S.K. in 2011 for an undisclosed fee, and later was sold to Spartak Moscow for a sum of €10 million as a result of allegation against him and his former club on possible match fixing.
One of the highlights of his time at the club was when he scored a hatrick against Lokomotiv Moscow, later to score a brace against the same club in the repeat fixture. In a fixture that ended in a 3-0 loss to Celtic in Champions League, Efe Ambrose, who was his country’s teammate, was full of praise for Emenike’s brace.
Emenike has played for quite a few other clubs such as Al Ain (loan), West Ham (loan), Olympiakos, and Las Palmas. He last played for Westerlo but both parties couldn’t reach an agreement to get him a contract.
