Saudi Arabia Coach Denies Players Will Get Rolls Royce After Argentina Win

Saudi Arabia forward Saleh al-Shehri also called the report false.

The Saudi Arabia head coach Herve Renard has denied claims that his entire team was being gifted Rolls Royce by the country's royal family after their stunning World Cup victory over Argentina. 

It had been previously reported that Saudi Arabia's crown prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud would present each of the players with RM6 million Rolls Royce Phantom when they return from Qatar. However now, Mr Renard struck down the report saying, "there is nothing true about this". 

According to New York Post, Herve Renard said, "We have a very serious federation and ministry of sport and it is not the time to get something at this moment. We only have played one game, have two very important [group stage] games and we are hoping for some more." 

"I don't know if you remember the press conference before Argentina. I said the Argentina game is one of the three important games we have to play. The only good thing at the end of this group stage is to finish No. 1 or No. 2," he added.
