Brazilian coach Jorvan Vieira will lead Kuwait’s national soccer team after the departure of Serbian Goran Tovgi last June, Kuwait’s Football Association said on Wednesday.
FA chairman Sheikh Talal al-Fahad will hold a press conference to announce the deal and disclose details, the association’s media coordinator Talal al-Mahtab told Reuters.
Vieira led Iraq to win the Asian cup title in 2007. Late June, he left his position as coach to Egypt’s Premier League Football Club Zamalek due to political unrest in the country.
He began his career coaching the Brazilian teams Vasco de Gama and Botafago. Vieira spent more than eight years in Morocco training domestic league clubs.
In the late 1990s, he led Qadisiyah to win the Kuwaiti premier league. Vieira also coached Omani and Malaysian teams, in addition to youth clubs across the Gulf, between 2001 and 2007.
