Former national captain David Nakhid has taken over the head coach position of Lebanese First Division team Racing Beirut.
Nakhid who runs who runs the David Nakhid Academy, was approached by Racing who have so far this season drawn four games and lost one. He agreed to complete the move last week, according to the Daily Star.
Nakhid previously had seasons with Al Ansar and one with Mabarrah as a player, first in the mid ‘90s then again from 2000-05.
“I will bring the same philosophy [to Racing] that I use in the academy,” Nakhid told The Daily Star. This philosophy is what Nakhid calls “playing good football” which includes, “playing out of the back and recovering the ball as soon as possible.”
Nakhid added that he would bring mostly the same approach to Racing as he does to his academy. “A coach has to be a father, a teacher and a brother all at the same time,” he said.
