TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Saudi Arabia’s Al-Taawoun FC announced the appointment of Frenchman Patrice Carteron as its new head coach ahead of Matchday Four of the 2020 AFC Champions League against Persepolis.
The reigning Saudi King’s Cup champion is currently top of Group C with six points from three matches, having lost its last match to Iran’s Persepolis 1-0 on Tuesday.
Al-Taawoun faces the Iranian side again on Friday.
Carteron, 50, had resigned from his post as head coach of Egyptian giant Zamalek SC after just nine months in charge. In his short spell in Cairo Carteron led Zamalek to the 2020 Egyptian Super Cup and CAF Super Cup titles while also guiding the team to the semi-finals of the CAF Champions League.
