It has been reported that Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola has urged Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli to join him in Qatar.
Zola is this season in charge of Al Arabi.
“There are extraordinary resources here,” Zola told Sky Italia.
“The federation headquarters are really cutting-edge, but we have to build the right culture of hard work.
“Cassano and Balotelli? They are two top players, and it could be an excellent opportunity for them to play in a League with less scrutiny, recharge their batteries, and return to Europe as protagonists.
“I’d recommend it as an experience. We have a lot of players, but if I had the opportunity [to sign them] I’d so it without a second thought.”
