Zidane says no to Qatar!

After Newcastle and Manchester United, this is the third refusal by Zinedine Zidane.

Without a club since the end of his adventure at Real Madrid last spring, Zinedine Zidane does not seem in a hurry to resume service. Determined to recharge the batteries and take advantage of his free time, the former world champion returned to the south of France where he notably launched a padel center. ” For us who are getting older, to stay in the business, it’s a perfect thing. There is no longer any need to do long races and it’s technique, all I like. It is pure passion. To be a padel coach? I’m going to stay in football ”, he explained.

As for football, the French technician is waiting for the right project. The Marseillais has no shortage of proposals. Solicited by Newcastle and Manchester United in the heart of the autumn, the French technician was also requested by Al Saad, in search of a coach to succeed Xavi, returned to Barça. But like the Magpies and the Red Devils, the Qatari club quickly had to be right, ZZ opposing an end of not receiving.

Zinedine Zidane has, it is true, other projects in mind. If he risks having to give up on the France team, which Didier Deschamps does not seem willing to give up after the next World Cup, the former Madrid player would be in advanced contact with PSG. Less and less convinced by the merits of Mauricio Pochettino, the Qatari owners have made the French their priority to take over from the Argentine technician and this time the French is much more receptive to the Doha arguments.
