Antonio Mohamed, an Argentine coach, has confirmed that he turned down an offer from Al-Nassr after Rudi Garcia was sacked.
Mohamed, who is presently the coach of Liga MX side UNAM, said he had four discussions with the Riyadh-based club to become their new manager, but he didn’t want to break his contract with UNAM.
Al-Nassr recently parted ways with Garcia after the Frenchman was in charge for 26 matches, winning 18, drawing five, and losing three.
“I had four talks with Al-Nassr, and just yesterday morning, I arrived at the club and received a call from the CEO of that team, and he told me that he loves me because they fired Rudi García. Besides, it was a lot of money. I told him that I already had a commitment to Pumas, that it was a matter of loyalty,” Mohamed told TV Azteca (via Mundo Deportivo).
“I would never leave one team to go to another. I [am] here at Pumas for a reason.”
