Zinnbauer Wanted By Saudi Club

Saudi Pro League side Al Wehda has shown interest in Raja Athletic Club head coach Josef Zinnbauer.

The club, who parted ways with Georgios Donis after a 13th-place finish in the league, are keen on the German who led Raja to an invincible domestic double in the 2024/25 season.

While Zinnbauer has reiterated his commitment to continue with the Botola Pro giants and continue the project with their return to the CAF Champions League, the lucrative Gulf region could be a tempting prospect.

iDiski Times understands the club has made him as their priority target and this comes during a time where Fadlu Davids, his first assistant coach, is close to joining Simba SC as their new head coach.

The former Orlando Pirates mentor stated he hopes his technical team will stick with him beyond this season after a historic campaign in Morocco – but it appears their incredible success at Raja will come with several options during their brief off-season.

They won the first-ever Golden Botola Pro and the Throne Cup, with a 35-game unbeaten domestic campaign this past season.
