Frank Rijkaard to coach Saudi Arabia eleven

29th June 2011, Comments 0 comments

Holland's former international player Frank Rijkaard has signed a contract to coach Saudi Arabia's national squad.

Sources close to the Saudi football federation told the AFP agency that the contract will not be formally announced until all details have been finalised. An earlier contract between the Saudis and prospective coach Ricardo Gomes bounced at the latest moment, and the federation would not want to go through that again, the source said.

Rijkaard's contract with the Saudi federation would be for three years. He was available for the job after being fired by Turkey's Galatasaray after a string of poor results.
