While his name comes back with insistence on the side of PSG, Zinedine Zidane had recognized a few years ago that it would be difficult for him to train the club of the capital, without completely excluding the possibility …
It’s an open secret: Zinedine Zidane is the top priority for the Qatari owners of the Paris Saint Germain to succeed Mauricio Pochettino, who should soon be relieved of his duties, except for a huge rebound. Several exchanges have already taken place between the 98 world champion and the Parisian management, who would even have seen each other again on Tuesday, according to the Sports world. But for the moment, no agreement has been reached.

For his part, Zidane does not speak. No comments from him, whether to deny or fuel the rumours. The last time he publicly mentioned the possibility of one day taking the reins of the residents of the Parc des Princes, it was in March 2015, on the plateau of the Canal Football Club. And here is what the former number 10 of the Blues said:
“I do not forbid myself anything, but…”
“Train PSG one day? For the moment they have a trainer who has results, and I am from Marseille. (…) But you should never say never. I don’t forbid myself anything but it’s going to be complicated… But I don’t forbid myself anything, especially as a coach. As a player it might be different, but as a coach it’s opportunities…”had thus blown the native of Marseille, despite everything leaving an open door to the leaders of Paris SG.

” Blues ? I have this goal, this ambition.
Yes but now, he says to himself that “Zizou” will not be easy to convince, he who would above all aim to take over from Didier Deschamps at the head of the France team. And why not at the end of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. A wish that he had precisely expressed during his passage in the emission of the chain Canal+.
“I was a player for this team, yes it would be good one day (to train him), but for the moment there is a coach in place (Didier Deschamps) who is doing a great job. But yes I have this objective, this ambition”let go without ambiguity this time the ex-trainer of the Real Madrid. Statements that date, of course, but clearly still relevant.
