Shortlisted to captain the Saudi Arabia national team in 1977 included Bob Paisley, Bobby Robson and Brian Clough

In 1977, Bob Paisley had just won the first of three European Cups with Liverpool; Bobby Robson’s classy Ipswich Town had finished third in the First Division; and Brian Clough had returned Nottingham Forest to the top flight.

All three went on to further incredible success with their respective clubs, but their careers could all have taken a different turn had they taken up an offer from Saudi Arabia to become their national team manager.
