Official: Saudi Arabia Sack Coach Jose Peseiro, Nasser Al-Johar Takes Over

Saudi Arabia have confirmed they have sacked coach Jose Peseiro after their shock 2-1 loss to Syria in their opening Asian Cup match.

The loss consigned the Falcons to the bottom of Group B after one match, and the Saudi FA took the decision to fire the coach, and appoint Nasser Al Johar for the remainder of the tournament.

The story is too old to be commented.
