Rene Meulensteen, a former first team coach at English Premier League side Manchester United, has confirmed his new role as technical director at the Qatar Football Association.
The Dutchman, who worked under Sir Alex Ferguson at the Premier League champions, recently vacated his role as manager at Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala after just 16 days in charge.
He had also been linked with jobs at London side Fulham and UAE Arabian Gulf League team Al Ain.
"My new job will be technical director of the Qatar FA," Meulensteen wrote on his Twitter feed.
"A venture I have given much thought to. Thanks again for your support and kind words."
He has spent previous spells in the Gulf state, including roles at Al Gharafa and Al Sadd.
In 2010, Qatar was awarded the rights to host the FIFA 2022 World Cup.
