Hussein Amotta (Arabic: الحسين عموتة‎ – born 24 October 1969 in Khemisset) is a former Moroccan footballer and current coach, presently coaching Al-Sadd in the Qatar Stars League. He previously played as a midfielder, and had spent his entire playing career in the Middle East and Africa.

Playing career

He started his career in his hometown club of Ittihad Khemisset in 1988.[2] He joined Al Sadd in 1997, helping them win the Emir Cup and the Crown Prince Cup in his second season at Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium. He was also the league top goalscorer that season.

He also had spells in United Arab Emirates with Al Sharjah and Saudi Arabia with Al Riyadh.[3]

Managerial career

He first started his managerial career as a player-coach at Zemmouis SC in 2003.[3]

A year later, went back to his first club, Ittihad Khemisset, winning the league in 2007. He left in the 2007/08 season. However, in 2008, he took over the reins of a well-known club, [4]

His first test came in the 2012 Sheikh Jassem Cup. Al Sadd, playing most of their matches with their second team, achieved the runners-up position when they lost to Al Rayyan SC in the final. In the league, his teams form won the appraisal of many pundits, with them winning all of their first nine games, setting a new league record.[5] Sadd were eventually held to a goalless draw by Al Kharaitiyat on 8 December 2012.[6] Al-Sadd won the league on 13 April 2013, one match before the end of the league. It was the first Al-Sadd's championship since 2007.
