Al Wehda are currently sixth in the Saudi Pro League with 21 points, only three behind third-placed Al Taawoun.

They have announced on Sunday that Mido has been appointed as their technical advisor until the end of the season and will manage the first-team until the arrival of the new manager.

The Saudi club have Egypt international goalkeeper Mohamed Awad in their ranks, as well as Turkey international Emre Colak and former Fenerbahce forward Fernandão.

Mido has previously had a few managerial stints, taking charge of Egyptian clubs Zamalek, Ismaily, and Wadi Degla.

The former Tottenham forward was also the technical advisor of Belgian club Lierse and Wadi Degla between June 2016 and November of the same year.

His only silverware as a manager came during his time at Zamalek, when he helped them lift the Egypt Cup in 2014.
