Several Arab and Syrian websites shared lately news saying that the ex-Real Madrid coach ZinedineZidane will coach Qatar national team after he announced leaving Real Madrid two days ago.

The websites cited a tweet by Egyptian businessman Naguib Sawiris saying "Zidane joining Qatar to coach national team for World Cup 2022. 50mn à year over 4 years ... Money talks”

Verify-Sy contacted Qatar Football Association and asked him about these news but the association denied such claims without giving more information or comment.

Worth to mention that Zidane announced in a press conference on May 30 he resigned and he said he left Real Madrid because he needs a new path but he won’t coach any team next season and he’s looking for some rest before coaching again.
