THE Syrian refugee kicked by a Hungarian journalist has landed himself a job in Spain. 

Former football manager of Syrian first division side Al-Fotuwa, Osama Abdul Mohsen, will team up with CENAFE coaches’ training school in Madrid.

Mohsen hit the world’s headlines after Hungarian journalist Petra Laszlo tripped him as he ran across the Hungary-Serbia border with his son Zaid in his arms.

She was subsequently fired from the television channel she worked for.

“We are a national coaching school so we decided to help a fellow coach,” the school’s director Miguel Angel Galan said.

A member of the football school has travelled to Germany to bring Mohsen, his two sons and wife back to Spain.
