Madrid, Dec 25: Syrian citizen Osama Abdul Mohsen, received in Spain as a refugee, will make his debut as a football coach when he leads Villaverde Boetticher club in a friendly match against Sant Cugat Esport on January 3, next year.

The friendly game will be held within the framework of an initiative launched by CESAL NGO, Coaches Training Centre, Sant Cugat Esport, Sant Cugat district municipality and Ramon Llull University, with the aim of raising awareness about the refugees and fundraising, reports Efe.

Mohsen came under the media spotlight when he was kicked by a jourlist and fell over while he was carrying one of his sons at a border crossing.

The photographs were widely circulated around the world and the jourlist was fired from her job, while Mohsen and his child were received in Spain as refugees.

However, Mohsen does appear to be having a few problems in Spain because of administrative procedures he faces to obtain visas for his wife and two other children, who are still in Turkey, so that they can all be reunited in Spain. IANS
