Lee Clark Resigns As El Merreikh Coach

Sudan Premier League giants El Merreikh have confirmed that Lee Robert Clark has resigned as the head coach of the club with immediate effect.

The Englishman was unveiled at the East African side in mid-March as a replacement of Tunisian coach Nasreddine Nabi who was sacked after a series of poor results.

Reports indicate that the club’s difficult financial situation led to his decision to tender the resignation which was reluctantly accepted by the club’s hierarchy.

“The journey of our boss Lee Clark with us comes to an end after he resigns as head coach of our club and the Board of Directors announces its acceptance of the resignation,” El Merreikh confirmed.

El Merreikh have been struggling to pay player salaries on a regular basis this year on top of outstanding sign-on fees.

Clark last managed in non-league at Blyth Spartans but parted company with the National League North side in March last year.

He started out in the dugout at Huddersfield Town and spent four years with the Yorkshire club in League One before Birmingham City lured him to the Championship in 2012.

He was snapped by Blackpool but won just three games in 33 with the club before quitting his role at Bloomfield Road as they were relegated.

He has since had spells at Kilmarnock and Bury, as well as Blyth and his job at El Merreikh was his first outside Europe.
