Zinedine Zidane has decided to break the silence, on the interest of PSG, and on the path he prefers, that of the French football team which makes him totally dream.
In a very long interview with the newspaper L’Equipe, Zinedine Zidane took stock of his life, he who is now 50 years old. If his name has often been mentioned at Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks, the Emir of Qatar has come to understand that Zizou has made his choice. The 1998 world champion will not join PSG to succeed Mauricio Pochettino, and he explained it verbally. The French technician, triumphant on his debut with Real Madrid, does not want to close the door definitively on PSG, especially since he considers the club of the capital as a possible choice in the future.
But right now, it’s no. “ If I can train PSG? Never say never. Especially when you are a coach today. But the question is moot. This is absolutely irrelevant. When I was a player, I had the choice, almost all the clubs. Coach, there aren’t fifty clubs I can go to. There are two or three possibilities. This is the current reality. Coach, we have much less choice than player. If I go back to a club, it’s to win. I say this with all modesty. That’s why I can’t go anywhere. For other reasons, too, I might not be able to go anywhere “Said Zidane, who also assures that the German and English championships may not be made for him given his difficulties in speaking the language of the country.
France is the pinnacle for Zidane

PSG therefore still have hope in the future, but for now, what is clearly tempting Zidane are the Blues. The former maestro of the France team does not hide it, and if he does not particularly want to push Didier Deschamps towards the exit, he is applying to become the boss of the world champions. “ I want to, of course. I will be, I hope, one day. When ? It’s not up to me. But I want to come full circle with the France team. I knew this France team as a player. And it’s the best thing that ever happened to me ! (He puts his hand on his heart.) But really ! It’s the pinnacle. And so, as I experienced that and today I am a coach, the France team is firmly rooted in my head. The France team is the most beautiful thing there is.”, delivered Zinedine Zidane, who seems ready to give up everything to lead the Blues. For the moment, the question does not arise since Didier Deschamps is still under contract, and he seems more eager to continue the adventure. All of this will be discussed with the French Football Federation in January, a few weeks after the World Cup in Qatar.
