John Terry could be the latest English figure to end up in Saudi Arabia as he is reportedly set to take over as Al-Shabab coach.
The former Chelsea and England defender could begin his managerial career in the Saudi Pro League, as The Sun reports he has reached a verbal agreement with Al-Shabab.
Talks are said to have started around a month ago and will end with him signing a contract for at least two years, though it could end up being four.
Terry, who is currently working as a consultant at Chelsea’s academy, will go head-to-head with former England co-star Steven Gerrard, who is in charge of Al-Ettifaq and managing Jordan Henderson.
Ex-Liverpool hero Robbie Fowler is also working in Saudi Arabia as Al-Qadsiah manager.
Former Premier League stars Cristiano Ronaldo, N’Golo Kante, Edouard Mendy, Kalidou Koulibaly, Ruben Neves and Roberto Firmino are also playing in the Middle Eastern country.
The 42-year-old could be in charge of Al-Shabab by the time they play their next game – against Al-Feiha on September 15.
The Riyadh club have just two points from their first five matches in the Saudi Pro League this season.
