Zidane dreams of being coach of the French national team

Zinédine Zidane dreams of being a coach of the French team, according to several sources in his environment cited by L’Equipe, for whom his future as a coach “is no longer a question of money, but of the heart.”

After his departure from the Real Madrid bench in May, Zidane has rejected “very important contracts” in England, the Persian Gulf and Asia, because the former French footballer is moved by emotions when taking elections, says a close friend in the published testimony by the sports newspaper.

What he wants today is an adventure that links him to his past: «’Zizou’ is still sentimental in his choices and there will always be four (teams) that will have preference: Girondins de Bordeaux, Juventus de Turin, Real Madrid and the French team “, details that source, whose identity is not given.

“The ‘bleus’ have been the central element of his career as a player,” says the one who was his coach at Cannes – the team with which he debuted – Guy Lacombe, who says that his departure from Real Madrid did not surprise him because “He’s tired of being a coach.”

In any case, the current French coach, Didier Deschamps, will continue to lead the team at least until the World Cup in Qatar, to be held between November and December 2022, so Zidane will not be eligible for the position at that time.

In an interview with the newspaper Le Figaro published on Thursday, the president of the French Football Federation, Noël Le Graet, explained that the relationship with Zidane is good and “I may one day be a coach. Maybe my successor will name him because I won’t stay forever either. “
