Zinédine Zidane would make the owners of PSG dream and they would be ready to get rid of Leonardo to install a new strong man at the head of the sports sector.
the PSG is visibly in the midst of the fall crisis … While Lionel messi has been in slow motion since his arrival, that Neymar is stopped for two months and that Kylian Mbappé seems to be preparing his departure for Real Madrid, the football offered by the Red and Blue is destitute. If the lead in Ligue 1 is wide, the recent defeat against Manchester City (2-1), in the Champions League, hurt morale.
Mauricio Pochettino, disillusioned after being unable to impose his ideas (like his predecessors), is in the hot seat. But now Leonardo would also be in the crosshairs of Qatari owners. The sporting director is the main decision-maker of the club, alongside Nasser al-Khelaïfi, but, according to Cadena Ser, Doha would be ready to get rid of a Brazilian who has become omnipotent and who would overshadow a certain… Zinédine Zidane .
Zidane-Wenger, the winning duo?
This Monday, Foot Mercato adds that the PSG staff still dreams of handing over the reins of the club’s sports sector to Arsène Wenger. The former Arsenal iconic coach had already been approached in 2018 but refused, to take a vacation and ended up joining Fifa (to become Gianni Infantino’s spokesperson for the World Cup every two years) .
This time around, the 72-year-old Alsatian could be convinced to form a smashing duo with “Zizou”, with whom he would very much appreciate working. And vice versa, probably. Zidane, on the sidelines since leaving Real last spring, is obviously waiting to take theFrench team after the 2022 World Cup next December. But can the replacement of Leonardo by Wenger be a game-changer?
