Jurgen Streppel is the new head coach of United Arab Emirates side Al-Jazira.

The 49-year-old was a candidate to take over at a number of Dutch clubs this summer including VVV Venlo. However, he has decided to continue his career in the UAE.

Streppel takes over from fellow Dutchman Damiën Hertog at Al-Jazira, who previously had Marcel Keizer and Henk ten Cate in charge. He signs a one-year deal but has the option to remain for another.

The former Heerenveen, Willem II and Helmond Sport coach was most recently in charge of Cypriot side Anorthosis Famagusta.
