Former Uzbekistan fitness coach Mahmoud Fayez was appointed to assist Jorge Luis Pinto leading United Arab Emirates for the remainder of their FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ qualifying campaign.
Egyptian Mahmoud Fayez, the former assistant to Hector Cuper, will also be included with the Pharaohs team, who moved with the coach to work for the Uzbekistan national team recently.
UAE coaching staff has a difficult task as UAE are currently fourth in Group G of the Asian Qualifiers on six points with four matches remaining.
They face Malaysia at home on October 8 before travelling to face Indonesia five days later. Their final two matches are at home to Thailand and Vietnam on November 12 and 17 respectively.
