If he does not completely close the door to a return alongside Zinedine Zidane, David Bettoni has other priorities than playing the assistants …
The timing seemed ideal. Landed by FC Sion after a heated altercation with its sulphurous president, David Bettoni returned to the game while Zinedine Zidane, with whom he held the role of assistant throughout the adventure of the 1998 world champion on the bench of Real Madrid, no longer hid his desire to return to service. But according to the former Cannes resident, evolving in the shadow of his friend is not his priority.
The native of Saint-Priest indeed has other ambitions and in particular that of coaching in Ligue 1, which could have been done last fall. “I had one or two proposals from Ligue 2 clubs last season but I hadn’t followed up because the ambitions… I didn’t really feel the project. I had a Ligue 1 club in October, the name of which I will not mention, which I could not accept for personal and family reasons. he thus revealed at the microphone of RMC.
My desire is to continue as number one
“I know that in the French market, it’s difficult because there isn’t a lot of room. I know my name is often checked off. Afterwards, there are not necessarily appointments. There have been a few. I do not despair that in a few weeks, I will have proposals to finally attack a career in France “, he continued, not however closing the door on Zinedine Zidane: “The future in football, we don’t know. Everything is possible, a return with Zizou, why not. »
But David Bettoni repeated it, his priority is elsewhere. “But my desire is to continue as number one and train in France”he asserted.
