The World Cup winner in ’98 ruled out rumors of never becoming a manager. The Frenchman claimed he has a lot left to give according to reports.
Zidane’s say on his future
Nevertheless, in an appearance for Telefoot, the veteran playmaker declared his intention of returning to managing soon.
When reporters tried to ask him about his career as a manager, Zizou replied by saying,
“Yes. I have a lot left to give, or at least something, and wish to continue along this path.”
“I want to continue, still have this flame, it’s my passion, football. I’m almost 50 years old, fulfilled, I’m happy, that’s the most important thing.”
The former Real Madrid player achieved the incredible feat of winning the Champions League three years in a row as a manager. This certainly gives confidence to the world of football that he’ll make a good manager wherever he goes.
PSG’s links with Zizou
However, the Parisians must no more have to cross their fingers to see Zidane leading them. PSG are taking a whole new route trying to sign Christophe Galtier from their rivals OGC Nice instead.
In the near future, the team plans to fire manager Mauricio and hire the man who led Lille to their French League championship last year.
Zidane to sideline the Roosters?
The French National Team will part ways with Didier Deschamps who managed his country to a World Cup victory in Russia four years ago.
The Roosters have won the competition twice, and are now looking bleak in winning more titles. As a result, Deschamps will no longer be there for the country after the World Cup in Qatar.
With the highly anticipated competition to commence in less than four months, there have been speculations of Zidane to lead them. He won France’s first World Cup on home soil beating Brazil 3-0 in 1998. And 8 years down the line led his country to the final after losing to Italy on penalties.
It is not yet known if he will agree to his contract as the French National Team manager following the competition.
