According to lionsdelatlas.net, former Olympique de Marseille trainer Eric Gerets fancies both his current job at Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal and the one being offered to him by the Moroccan Royal Football Federation who are looking to fill their coaching void with someone of his stature.
However, it appears that this is not a very likely scenario
considering that his current employer, Abdulrahman bin Musa’ad, isn’t thrilled
by the idea.
“The Moroccan Federation proposed a four and half year
contract as head coach. I considered holding both posts but it seems
complicated. Plus the prince isn’t keen on it," explained Gerets while
speaking to Het Laatste Niews.
"In him I’ve found a friend for
life. He doesn’t let any opportunity pass to demonstrate this. This includes
expensive gifts. In fact, he already gave me a car.”
The well traveled coach is currently on a two year contract
with Al Hilal and earning 250,000 Euros a month in Saudi Arabia which may
explain his hesitancy to leave such a lucrative situation in favor of a
Moroccan side that does not have any major competitions to partake in imminently.
