Bauza replaces van Marwijk as boss of saudi arabia
EdgaRdO BaUza left his post with the United Arab Emirates’ national side to replace Bert Van Marwijk as coach of Saudi Arabia. The former Argentina boss was only in charge of the UAE for four months, having replaced Mahdi Ali in May.
Despite steering Saudi Arabia to their first World Cup in 12 years, Van Marwijk was shown the door after a disagreement over the Dutchman’s role in the run-up to next year’s finals in Russia.
Russia bound... Edgardo Bauza
