Interesting article in The Peninsula today saying firstly that the QFA have denied offering Felipe Scolari a job in Qatar and secondly confirming the launch of a revamped Q-Legaue next season.

The writer also interestingly emphasises the influence of the Asian Football Confederation on the decision to 'professionalise' the game here in Qatar.
