SAM ALLARDYCE is wanted by mega-rich Qatar to shape a team good enough to grace the 2022 World Cup.
The oil-rich Arab state shocked football when winning the right to stage the World Cup – now they want Big Sam to groom their young stars.
Allardyce, sacked by Blackburn earlier this month, has figured prominently in secret discussions held recently by the Qatari FA.
The man they choose to succeed current Qatar boss Bruno Metsu will pocket a salary of £5million a year – putting him in the same monster pay bracket as Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.
With money no object, the Qatar FA want to reach 2022 with a team who won’t embarrass their nation.
It’s a tall order – Qatar has no football tradition and the national side has won only 39 of 86 World Cup qualifiers in the notoriously weak Asian section. (Sunday People)
Can anyone see one small issue with this report? Qatar are looking for a manager to help shape a team to grace the 2022 World Cup, the problem being that we are 12 years away from that tournament! Add to that the fact that the mega rich nation obviously does not even have to qualify for the 2022 World Cup and it seems a tad early to be planning ahead for the showpiece tournament.
Big Sam will be anxiously awaiting that call that could make him a very rich man indeed.
