The return of foreign coaches to the Syrian clubs from the portal of the Aleppo Union
Al Ittihad Club announced today the arrival of Brazilian coach Arthur Bernardesch to lead its first football team, a precedent in Syrian clubs nearly ten years ago, when the crisis began in the country.
Before the outbreak of the crisis, the Syrian clubs had previously sought and contracted players and coaches of different nationalities.
The Al Ittihad club did not disclose the value of the contract, noting that the 66-year-old Brazilian coach had previously worked in Saudi and Emirati clubs in the early 2000s and several Brazilian clubs.
Mazen Abu Saadi, a member of Al-Ittihad club management, told (AFP) that the coach's contract extends for a season and a half, "he will supervise the club's teams, especially the first team, for a season and a half, and he will choose the first team members for the next season."
It is noteworthy that the Al-Ittihad club suffers from its negative results in the local league and ranks eighth after the end of the seventeenth stage.
At the end of last month, Al-Wehda club announced the return of African foreign players to the league, who will undergo a trial before their participation in the AFC Cup, but it soon dispensed with them due to their poor quality, revealing that it was seeking to include substitutes for them.
