Florentino Perez, president of Real Madrid, did not think about Zinedine Zidane on the bench of PSG where the situation of the French coach and may change since the end of his adventure at Real in 2021.
Florentino Perez has long been confined to the show El Chiringuito on Wednesday. He has obviously talked a lot about Kylian Mbappé and, by ricochet, PSG. There was also question of the Paris club about its next coach when Mauricio Pochettino, on contract just in 2023, will leave. Zinedine Zidane is one of the names coming up with the most insistence to replace Argentina. One such issue will surprise the Real manager who recalls the attachment of the former Bleus leader to Real where he marked history as a player (2001-2006), then as a coach (2016-2018, then 2019) -2019 .
“He has always been a man of Real Madrid and the French team”
“I don’t know (if he signs with PSG, ed.), But he has always been a man from Real Madrid and the French team,” Perez pointed out. That’s what I know about him. But maybe -to be in a different situation now. “
In Madrid, Zidane suspended six or so titles as a player before completing his insolent performance as a coach. In his two seasons on the bench, he has snatched eleven trophies, including three consecutive Champions Leagues (2016, 2017 and 2018) and two championships in Spain (2017, 2020). He left the club a little late in 2021, one year at the end of his contract, by publishing a long letter in the Spanish press to explain his ras-le-bol. “I was able to give the impression where the club I did not give and the confidence I did not know, otherwise I offer support for construction where you choose a medium or long term”, he said notamment déclaré .
Free, he is now in the eyes of PSG owners who are dreaming. Zidane always keeps in a corner of his head the idea of becoming the next selector of the French team in case of the departure of Didier Deschamps at the end of the 2022 World Cup. Christophe Galtier, currently stationed in Nice, is the other big promoter to become the new Parisian coach.
