Qatar: Al Sadd Appoint Cosmin Olaroiu As Coach

The Romanian gaffer will take charge of the Gulf powerhouse...
Al Sadd have appointed Cosmin Olaroiu as their new coach.

The 11-time Qatar champions have entrusted the Romanian with the task of leading them through the upcoming Crown Prince Cup and Emir Cup campaigns.

The 39-year-old left Saudi Arabian giants Al Hilal last month in controversial circumstances. After leading his team to a cup win, he supposedly insulted Saudi royalty during the after-match celebrations.

Olaroiu was upset by the security arrangements during the ceremony and abruptly stormed out. On his way, he placed a club shirt bearing the Crown Prince’s image onto a podium in what was seen by some as a disrespectful gesture. 

Al Sadd’s website announced that the Romanian had signed a two-year contract and has already attended a training session.
