Fajr Ibrahim (Arabic: فجر إبراهيم‎) is a Syrian football coach and former footballer.[1][2]

Club career[edit]

Fajr started playing in the Syrian League with Al-Wahda team in 1979. He remained with the club until he retired from the playing. He won the Syrian Cup in 1993 with Al-Wahda team and won the title of best left back in 1986 season.[3]

International career[edit]

Fajr played several international matches with Syria for five years from 1982 until 1987.[3]

Coaching career[edit]

He managed the Syrian first team more than 50 matches between 2006 and 2019, however, he didn't achieve great things with the team. Lately, he did an emergency mission and replaced the German manager Bernd Stange in the last match for the team in 2019 Asian Cup against Australia. Many pundits referred that he had the UAE visa since the middle of December[4], so he could be ready to replace the manager if the things went wrong.
