Club careerEdit

On 25 June 2007, Emad renewed his contract with Sepahan for another season in a deal thought to be worth in the region of $600,000.[1]

International careerEdit

Mohammed made his full international debut on 31 January 2000, against Lebanon in Beirut in a 0–0 draw.[2]

Managerial careerEdit

Start with Al-ZawraaEdit

Emad Mohammed started his managerial career with hometown club Al-Zawraa. He retired from his playing career mid-season in 2014 to take over from Jamal Ali.[3] The young manager did well in the regular season, finishing second in group A, level on points with Al Jawiya. However, Al Zawra’a massively underperformed in the playoffs, finishing dead last in group 1. Al Zawra’a decided not to extend his contract for the following season.[4]

Al NajafEdit

Emad took over 7 games into the next season from the resigning Ali Wahab.[5] The team ended up finishing 7th in group B, easily avoiding relegation.[6] Emad was rehired the following season, replacing his replacement, Hatif Shamran.[7] Al Najaf finished in 9th place overall, with 49 points. The team was knocked out in the round of 16 of the Iraqi FA Cup due to the team forfeiting their match against Amanat Baghdad. Al Najaf chose not to renew his contract once again.

Naft Al WasatEdit

Emad was appointed as manager of Naft Al Wasat on February 5, 2018 to replace Adil Nima.[8] Prior to that, he rejected working for Al Talaba, due to the poor administrative state.[9] He was sacked 7 rounds before the end of the season.[10] A picture on the internet went viral the day of his sacking, a conversation between him and Al Zawraa player Ali Rehema, agreeing to fix the match for the latter. The picture turned out to be a hoax.[11]
