UAE sack Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk


Paris (AFP) – The United Arab Emirates have sacked their Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk after only nine months in the job.

The 67-year-old who led the Netherlands to the 2010 World Cup final took over the UAE national side in March.

His departure comes in the wake of the UAE’s 4-2 defeat to Qatar in the Gulf Cup on Tuesday. He had taken over from Italian Alberto Zaccheroni, who left also after a defeat to Qatar, in the semi-finals of the 2019 Asian Cup.

Van Marwijk, whose Netherlands side were beaten 1-0 by Spain in the 2010 World Cup final, coached Australia at the 2018 World Cup.
