Dunga in Qatar

UAE-Pro League has Diego Maradona as coach of Al Wasl? No problem, now also Qatar Stars League has appointed a star coach. In fact, Doha's side Al Rayyan, seven-time Qatari champions, hired Carlos Dunga as its new head coach. The 47-year-old Brazilian replaces compatriot Paulo Autuori, who changed his position to coach the Qatari Under-23 team. A former holding midfielder for the Brazilian winning side at the 1994 World Cup, Dunga played in Brazil, Italy, Germany and Japan. "His name was recommended by Autuori," a club source said. Dunga is the second former Seleção head coach to work in Qatar: this summer, the country that will host the 2022 World Cup named Sebastiao Lazaroni as national side coach after Serbian Milovan Rajevac was sacked. The 2011-12 QSL season will start next September 14. Dunga will have the goal to reach the title with Al Rayyan that haven't won the league since 1995. With Al Rayyan play four Brazilians: Moisés, Nathan, Afonso Alves and Rodrigo Tabata. Forward Alves has been called up by Dunga when he was in charge of the seleção brasileira. Tabata, coming here on loan last January from Turkish club of Besiktas, helped the team to win the Prince Cup last season. Centre-back Moises also went in Qatar last January, coming from Sporting Braga. Also in the team are Fabio Cesar, a Brazilian born player naturalized Qatari and Korea Republic international Cho Yong-Hyung.
