Al Gharafa to hand coaching reins to Bulent Uygun

Al Gharafa to hand coaching reins to Bulent Uygun

Doha: Al Gharafa parted ways with their coach Jean Fernandez, the QNB Stars League Club said on their website, adding that Turk Bulent Uygun will be the new man in charge.

Though Gharafa won the QSL Cup recently after beating Al Rayyan in the final, they were a massive disappointment in the first phase of the league.

Despite hiring renowned French coach Fernandez from Al Khor and bringing in a host of new players, they managed just two wins and are seventh in the table, with 11 points from as many games.

Uygun, who coached Umm Salal for three years (2013-2016), was most recently with Turkish side Osmanlispor before leaving in September, after just five weeks into the season.
