Ivan Jovanovic has been named the new coach of the UAE national football team.

The 57-year-old Serbian replaces Dutchman Bert van Marwijk, who was sacked earlier this month.

Jovanovic has been tasked with reviving the UAE’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign.

The Whites will take on Malaysia at home on March 26 before playing Indonesia away five days later.
