Al Ahli name Jorge as Caparros’ successor


Al Ahli appointed their youth team coach George Jorge as successor to Joaquin Caparros, who quit his post on Wednesday while on vacation in native Spain citing personal reasons.

The club management took the decision to promote Spaniard Jorge till the end of this season after holding an emergency meeting.

Former Al Ahli midfielder and Qatar international Younis Ali will assist him.

Caparros’ resignation came when The Brigadiers were doing pretty well, occupying the sixth position in QNB Stars League standings with 14 points after 11 matches (four wins, five draws and two defeats).

Al Ahli will host Al Gharafa in the 12th round on 12th January.
