Al Ain striker Emenike has been jeered in the UAE
Nigeria striker Emmanuel Emenike was jeered by supporters of his UAE side Al Ain for unimpressive performances for the club over the weekend.
Emenike has been heavily criticised for his performances since this summer’s one-year loan move from Fenerbahce with many thinking he can not replace legendary Asamoah Gyan of Ghana.
This criticism comes despite scoring four goals in seven matches, including two in August’s 4-2 Super Cup victory against Al Nasr.
The Nigerian, who replaced the prolific Asamoah Gyan, was jeered by sections of the Al Ain support as he was substituted in Friday’s Arabian Gulf League encounter with Al Jazira.
Al Ain, the defending champions and currently top of the table, won the match 2-0.
