Marcel Keizer is the new head coach of Sporting club de Portugal after signing a two-year deal on Thursday.

Al-Jazira had already confirmed earlier on Thursday that Keizer had left his position as their head coach and after Sporting’s 0-0 draw at Arsenal, confirmation came that the former Ajax boss had signed a contract until mid-2021.

José Peseiro was sacked by Sporting last week after only four months in charge of the Portuguese giants, and Keizer takes over with the club sitting third in the league and second in their Europa League group.

For Keizer it is a second chance at a big European club, having disappointed in his short spell in charge of Ajax last season. He took over Al-Jazira in the summer and was praised for his style of play with the Saudi club.
