OFFICIAL: Jesualdo Ferreira announced as manager of Al-Sadd
Qatari Club Al-Sadd SC have announced former Zamalek manager Manuel Jesualdo Ferreira as their new manager just a few days after the Portuguese manger ended his contract with Zamalek unilaterally.
Ferreira had been linked with Qatari sides Al-Sadd and Al-Gharfa by Portuguese media but the 69-year-old manager is set to manage Xavi Hernandez’s team, as Al-Sadd were the quickest to his signature.
The club has stated on its official website that the Portuguese manager arrived to the Qatari capital, Doha, on Monday and has been negotiating a contract this week. On Friday, the club announced that the Portuguese manager will have his first press conference on Saturday.

It’s worth mentioning that Ferreira left Egypt and ended his contract after he informed Zamalek through a fax, before being slammed by Zamalek president Mortada Mansour as a ‘drunk‘ and through the club’s official website as a ‘lying fugitive‘. The Portuguese manager announced that he would file a complaint to FIFA against his old club as he didn’t receive his financial dues.
Ferreira did the domestic double with the Whites in his first season as he won Zamalek’s first league title in 11 years before he won the Egypt Cup after beating city rivals Al Ahly in the final for the first time since 2007.
Al-Sadd, who were previously managed by the Moroccan manager Hussein Amotta, is in 3rd place with 21 points after 9 games and only six points away from league leaders Al Rayyan.
