French coach will have rejected the possibility of guiding the team where Cristiano Ronaldo lines up.
Zinedine Zidane will have rejected a proposal from Al Nassr, a club in the Saudi championship where Cristiano Ronaldo plays, to guide the team.
The French coach has been unemployed for two seasons, since leaving Real Madrid at the end of the 2020/21 season, but does not seem willing to return to active duty to coach the team where Cristiano Ronaldo plays.
According to the French media outlet Foot Mercato, the Saudi club would be willing to offer Zidane a two-year contract, worth 150 million euros (75 million euros per season), an amount that will not have been enough to convince the former midfielder to move to the Arabian Peninsula. Zidane will be waiting for an opportunity at a top club, in one of the top five European leagues (England, Spain, Germany, Italy and France), to resume his career.
Al Nassr, who are in second place in the Saudi league, with three points behind leader Al Ittihad, led by Nuno Espírito Santo, two days from the end of the championship, are looking for a new coach to replace Dinko Jelicic, who took over, on an interim basis, when the head coach, Rudi Garcia, agreed to terminate his contract with the club, in April.
