Saudi Arabia star Al-Qahtani offered Chelsea chance

The Saudi Arabia captain, who received the award at a gala dinner in Sydney, Australia earlier on Wednesday, has the option to train at their Cobham headquarters as a result of the partnership between the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) and Chelsea.

That partnership, the first of its kind between a global confederation and a top European club, is aimed at the promotion and development of Asian football.

The training offer is subject to the agreement of the player's club, Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia, the player himself and calendar commitments.

The 25-year-old forward played in the 2006 World Cup where he scored against Tunisia and led his team to the 2007 Asian Cup final.
