Umm Salal Egyptian manager Mahmoud Gaber has won the Qatar Stars League Manager of the Month award for February and March.

The Qatari outfit played five games in February and March, winning two and drawing three which helped the team to claim the sixth spot in the league standings with 30 points from 23 games.

Umm Salal began February with a goalless draw against Al Kharaitiyat followed by a 1-1 draw against Al Ahli at home in match-day 20.

They then produced a shocking 3-1 victory over league leaders Lekhwiya and continued their fine performance by winning 1-0 against Muaither.

Umm Salal’s final game took place on the 2nd of March against second-placed Al-Sadd and it ended in a dull 0-0 draw at home.

Mahmoud Gaber, FC Basel’s Omar Gaber father, took over as the Qatari side manager last December, replacing Turkey’s Bülent Uygun, who was sacked following Umm Salal’s 8-0 loss to Al-Sadd.

Umm Salal are currently sixth in the league, and their next game will be against fifth-placed Al-Gharafa on Sunday, April 2 at Thani bin Jassim Stadium.
