The Saudi Arabian football coach, Herve Renard, has said that the reports that his entire team would be gifted Rolls Royce by the Crown Prince, Mohammed Salman, for their shocking win over Argentina is false.
According to the New York Post, the coach said there was no truth to the report. Renard said, “There is nothing true about this, we have a very serious federation and ministry of sport and it is not the time to get something at this moment.
He said we only have played one game, have two very important [group stage] games and we are hoping for some more.”
Saleh al-Shehri, who plays forward for the Saudi Arabian team also confirmed that the report was false.
New York Post reports that the claim surfaced from the tweet of a Pakistani dentist who was ill-informed.
