Zinedine Zidane refused huge $13 million managerial offer from another team
Zinedine Zidane is about to lead Real Madrid for the first time in his life in the upcoming weekend, as the Whites will be going against Deportivo La Coruna. However, things could have been a lot different if the French legend had chosen to sign a $13 million contract with another team just a few months ago.
According to reports, a Saudi Arabian club had offered Zidane the huge $13 million deal, but the ex-Real Madrid midfielder turned them, as it was a dream of his to manage the Whites someday. Moreover, Marca captured that perfectly:
Zidane is Real Madrid through and through, and his dream was to also one day step up from Castilla to the first team.”
However, it will be quite curious to see whether Zidane can handle the pressured at the Santiago Bernabeu, given how little managerial experience he has.
