Zidane could earn £120k-a-day as Qatar boss
Zinedine Zidane is being lined as the next manager of the Qatar national team on a £50 million-a-year deal, according to reports.
However, he may not be out of work for long if reports are to be believed.
Much like former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola, the Frenchman is expected to take a sabbatical from football, but an offer of around £120,000-a-day could convince him to change his mind.
According to influential Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris, ‘Zizou’ will be offered a four-year deal by the Qatar Football Association to leave him £176 million richer by 2022.
