Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson was on Sunday named as technical director at Dubai side Al Nasr, the UAE Pro-League club announced.
The 64-year-old, who will work on the development of the team which is coached by Italy's Walter Zenga, will be unveiled at a news conference on Monday.
Eriksson had been expected to take up a post with German second division side 1860 Munich, but pulled out of the deal on Friday citing a change of heart.
The Swede has an extensive coaching resume having managed Mexico and Ivory Coast as well as a host of European clubs including Manchester City, Benfica, AS Roma, Fiorentina and Lazio.
