Seen from Spain, the arrival of Zinedine Zidane at the head of the Blues is no longer in doubt. An agreement would even have been found between the former Madrid player and the French Federation.
As the Blues prepare to launch their World Cup this Tuesday against Australia, Mundo Deportivo dropped a bomb on the other side of the Pyrenees. According to the Catalan daily, Zinedine Zidane will succeed Didier Deschamps on the bench of the France team at the end of the World Cup. An agreement has indeed already been reached between the former playmaker of the Blues and the French Football Federation. Information confirmed by Telemadrid.
Without a club since the end of his adventure at the head of Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidane no longer hides his wish to take the reins of the France team. “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,” he had asserted at the beginning of the summer, adding: “The France team is firmly anchored in my head. “And more recently, on the occasion of the inauguration of his new statue at the Grévin Museum, Zizou had assured that he would “soon” resume service. “I’m not far off. We wait, we wait a little bit »he added.
However, according to Noël Le Graët, to see Zinedine Zidane sit on the bench of the Blues, it will take a big underperformance from the men of Didier Deschamps in Qatar. ” We both agree, we will see each other immediately after the World Cup. If we go to the semi-finals, it is he who has the choice. If he feels motivated to continue, we don’t even argue. If we are not in the last four, we discuss. In this hypothesis, it is I who have the hand, recently declared the president of the FFF. If Didier is not in the last four, he does not stay in place for sure… Afterwards, I do not feel any weariness on his part. His thing is the France team, the love of the jersey. I have absolute confidence in him. »
