It’s official: Dutch soccer star Frank Rijkaard is taking over as trainer of Saudi Arabia’s national team. The 48-year-old signed a three-year contract with the Saudi FA on Sunday.

Brazilian trainer Ricardo Gomes was the Saudis’ first choice as national squad coach but that deal fell through because of disagreements about a starting date for his contract.
