QNB Stars League — October, 2018 — Milan Macala (Al Ahli)


Milan Macala of Al Ahli has been named as the QNB Stars League’s best coach for the month of October, 2018.

Under Macala, Al Ahli played three games and won all of them during the month.

The Brigadiers completed a hat-trick of victories in Weeks 8, 9 and 10, against Al Shahania (2-1), Al Arabi (3-0) and Al Sadd (4-1), in that order.

The nine points from those three wins helped Al Ahli climb up to the sixth position in the standings with 15 points.

During the period, Al Ahli scored nine goals while conceding just two.

They had 13 shots on target and 14 against.

At the start of this season, veteran Czech Macala returned to coach Al Ahli, where he was at the helm from 2012 to 2015.

Macala, who was born on 4th August, 1943, has vast experience coaching in many countries. He was appointed coach of Czechoslovakia in 1990.

He moved to Kuwait in 1994 to train Kazma and then won the 1996 Gulf Cup with the Kuwait national team. 

Macala is perhaps the coach with most Gulf experience as he has also managed the national teams of Saudi Arabia, Oman, the UAE and Bahrain.
