Former England midfielder Ray Wilkins hired as coach of Jordan's national soccer team
AMMAN, Jordan - Former England midfielder Ray Wilkins has been hired as the coach of Jordan's national soccer team.
The 57-year-old Wilkins' last coaching position was as an assistant with Fulham in the English Premier League last season. He also had the same role with Chelsea and was manager of both Queens Park Rangers and Fulham in the 1990s.
The Jordan Football Association says on its website that Wilkins will take charge after the team's friendly matches against Uzbekistan on Thursday and China on Tuesday.
Jordan is No. 56 in FIFA's rankings — the fourth-highest country in the Asian Football Confederation.
Wilkins, who played for Chelsea, Manchester United and AC Milan in his 24-year career, will be assisted by former Arsenal and Ireland striker Frank Stapleton.
