Emmanuel Emenike Biography
He didn’t sign a professional contract until his transfer from Delta Force to a South African side named Mpumalanga Black Aces in January 2008 – where he spent just five months.
Another transfer to a First Division team in the South African league (FC Cape Town) proved to be another wonder audition for Emmanuel Emenike. He barely played a year at FC Cape Town before Karabükspor came calling with an irresistible offer.
Of course, being a very lucrative offer, it was a no-brainer for the Nigerian international. He agreed to join the club.
He transited to the Turkish clubside and had a swell time playing there. In his two-year stay, Emenike bagged 30 goals in 51 outings and won the Best Foreign Player in the league after the 2009/2010 season – a performance that was the deciding factor in seeing his contract extended for another three years.
Soon enough, Emmanuel Emenike had become very popular in the Turkish topflight division, particularly after bagging the Best Foreign Player award the year earlier.
A move to Fernabahçe was made in 2013, but little did Emenike and the world know that the move would turn out to be a disaster; as he never featured in a competitive match for the club due to a match-fixing scandal which was eventually dismissed by a court.
Subsequently, Emenike was sold to Spartak Moscow for a fee of around €10 million in 2011.
He spent two years in Russia, playing UEFA Europa League and set a record that to date hasn’t been broken.
Emenike scored what was the fastest goal in the history of the Russian league when he scored within 10 seconds of a kick-off during a 2-1 win against Alania Vladikavkaz; coincidentally on the opening day of the season.
He would return to Fernabahçe in 2013 – a move the Nigerian striker described as a ‘dream come true’.
This time, he was able to play competitive football for The Yello-Navy Blues, scoring 19 goals in 69 appearances.
Three years later, Emenike was loaned to the English Premier League; precisely West Ham, with an option to make the move permanent.
Furthermore, Emenike had spells at Olympiakos, Las Palmas and Westerlo before his retirement in 2019.
Going by his antecedents, it clearly shows that he never played for any Nigerian clubside at the top level, thus making his international career a short one.
But as short as it was, Emenike’s international career was one that many footballers with a longer stay in the National team never had.
He didn’t play for the Super Eagles until 2013 when he was in Spartak Moscow. Emenike was invited to Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the 2013 edition of the African Cup of Nations in South Africa.
Eventually, Nigeria emerged champions of the tournament at the expense of Burkina Faso in the final – the country’s third continental title.
But despite not playing in the final due to injury, Emenike’s vital role in the success story of the team and its manager was largely noteworthy. He finished as joint top scorer with four goals alongside Ghana’s Mubarak Wakaso.
After injuries blighted his chances of featuring for Nigeria at the 2014 World Cup, coupled with several months of neglect by the National team handlers, he in October 2015 announced his retirement from international football.
Emenike made a fortune while playing for top European clubsides in his decent career. He was making around $2.9 million annually during his Fernabahçe and Spartak Moscow days.
He garnered a sum of $4.9 million during his initial two-time spells at Fernabahçe. At West Ham, Emenike earned $2.28 yearly.
Emenike was back at Fernabahçe in 2016 where he was paid $2.79 for another year before his move to Las Palmas in 2017.
Emenike net worth
What could Emenike net worth be? Altogether, the former Eagles striker played for ten clubsides in his career, subsequently becoming one of the wealthiest Nigerian footballer players.
During his days in Europe, Emenike was among the highest paid footballers from Africa and so Emenike net worth is an estimated $12 to $15 million.
Marriage, Wife & Family
Emenike’s parents are both from Anambra State, with Emmanuel being their eldest child. He has three siblings, two of which are brothers named Felix and Ebuka Emenike.
The sister’s name is unknown at the time of writing this piece.
Meanwhile, he is married to erstwhile Nigeria’s most beautiful girl winner. The two of them got married in 2016 and welcomed their first child a year later.
They had their second child in March 2020.
House and Cars
Blessed with such a huge amount of money, Emenike has got properties to show for his hard work. Reports have it that the Nigerian star owns multi-million mansions in London, Dubai and Nigeria.
He’s got luxurious cars in his garage ranging from a custom-made Mercedes Benz G-Wagon and Range Rover Sport SUV.
