Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, will return to management for the first time since leaving the Gunners in January 2018.
Wenger is participating in the 2022 Riyadh Season Cup, coaching a combined team consisting of players from two of the Kingdom’s biggest clubs.
It’s Wenger’s first professional coaching role since ending his 22-year stint at Arsenal.
The Riyadh Season begins this month, with global entertainment festivals running until March next year.
The events will be spread across 14 different zones in the Saudi Arabian capital.
One of those will be the Riyadh Season Cup, where a team of Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr players will take on European heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain that boast the likes of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
Wenger will take charge of the home team as Saudi Arabia welcomes PSG for the first time in the third week of 2022.
On Sunday, Saudi Royal Court Advisor Turki Alsheikh confirmed Wenger’s role on Twitter.
He tweeted: “The great international coach Arsene Wenger was signed to lead the stars of Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr against Paris Saint-Germain in the cup.”
Wenger is currently serving as FIFA’s Chief of Global Football Development after leaving Arsenal in 2018.
The Frenchman won three English Premier League titles and seven FA Cups, leading Arsenal to an unbeaten league season in 2003/04 during his time at the club
