Rabat – Former Barcelona player Rivaldo Ferreira has denied signing a contract with the Moroccan football club of Chabab Al Mohammedia.

The renowned Brazilian footballer took to his Instagram to dispel some rumors and thank the president of the football club for sending him a Chabab Mohammedia jersey.

He also expressed gratitude for president’s offer to serve as a coach for Chabab Mohammedia.

“I would like to thank the president of Chabab Mohammedia football club for the jersey and also for the invitation but I am still not a coach, maybe in the future,” he said.

Rivaldo’s post contradicts several announcements the Moroccan club posted on its Facebook page.

Yesterday, the club wrote on its Facebook page that the former footballer is now a “Chababi.”

“We are delighted to announce the signing of the Brazilian legend Rivaldo as the coach of the team starting from the next season,” the post added.

In another post, the club wrote that Rivaldo joined the technical staff of the team.

The posts received several reactions on Facebook from hearts to laughter.
