Paulo Sérgio, 51, will succeed Pedro Emanuel as coach of Al-Taawon, Saudi Arabia.
It is recalled that Al-Taawon finished the championship in third place and won the Saudi Arabian Cup for the first time in its history. Despite the good campaign, Pedro Emanuel decided to end the connection to the club, and the future of the coach is still unknown.
His successor, Paulo Sérgio, guided Sanat Naft of Iran last season. He had previously been at Al Fujairah (UAE), Académica, APOEL (Cyprus), Cluj (Romania), Hearts (Scotland), Sporting, Vitória de Guimarães, Paços de Ferreira, Beira-Mar, Santa Clara and Olhanense.
