Zinedine Zidane set for big money move to Qatar national team: report

Former France captain Zinedine Zidane has been linked with a shock move to Qatar to take over their national team, one day after he quit his post as Real Madrid manager.

Reports say that Zidane could earn up to £50m per year in the oil-rich country as they prepare to host the 2022 World Cup.

Zidane, fresh off his third Champions League victory in a row could be tempted by the move.

According to influential Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris, he will be offered a four-year deal to lead Qatar to their first ever World Cup.

As hosts, the country have qualified automatically for the controversial tournament, set to be played in Winter.

The current Head Coach of Qatar is former Barcelona youth coach Félix Sánchez.

Speaking on Thursday Zidane said he would not manage a club side next season and had been expected to take a sabbatical from the game.

“I’m not going to coach any other team next season. I spoke with (Sergio) Ramos who respected my decision and wished me luck," the French icon said.
