Those choosing to cast a vote have until Sunday to make their selection, with a six-man shortlist from which to select.

With Al-Asaad Al-Daridi having been removed from his post, the vacancy must be filled by someone.

Among the contenders is Frenchman Bertrand Marchand and Serbian coach Ratko Dostanic, who would be taking in a second spell at the helm if appointed.
