Michael Laudrup has been appointed as the new coach of Lekhwiya, the Qatari club have announced.
The Dane has been out of a job since leaving Swansea in February, just a year after winning the Capital One Cup -- the first major trophy in the Welsh club's history.
Doha-based outfit Lekhwiya are the champions of Qatar and were previously coached by Belgian Eric Gerets.
The club said on their official website that details of his contract would be announced at a later date.
Former Barcelona and Real Madrid midfielder Laudrup admitted he may look for a challenge beyond football management when his deal with Lekhwiya expires.
He told Danish newspaper Politiken: "I'm now entering my final phase as a coach. Although whether Lekhwiya will be my final or penultimate club I can't say.
"And I don't know either whether this phase while last two, three of four years. The answer is blowing in the wind.''
