Sports Desk: Zinedine Zidane is currently retired after coaching Real Madrid on two occasions. There were rumors that he was going to be the coach of PSG. However, the buzz has disappeared in the air. Why it was mixed, a spark was also found this time. The French coach said he wanted to coach the French national football team.

There have been rumors in the last few days that PSG coach Mauricio Pachettino has gone to work, and Zidane has been coached. There were also rumors of him being coached by Manchester United. However, the coaching of France is more attractive to Zidane than the coaching of the club.

Today is Zidane's 23rd birthday. On that occasion, he gave an exclusive interview to the French news outlet Le Kipke. "The Blues (France national team) chapter is not over for me," he said.

Recently, PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi spoke about Zidane in an interview with Marca. He said there was no talk with Zidane. "I want to say something important about Zidane," he said. He's the one I love as a player and coach. But we never talked to him, whether directly or indirectly. I respect him, I admire him too. There was a lot of gossip, but we never talked to him. "

However, Zidane's path to coaching France is not easy. The team's coach is now Didier Deschamps, who helped France win the World Cup in 2016 and the League of Nations last year. After such success, he will leave the coaching of France when it is in the hands of the current coach.

Deschamps, the 1998 World Cup-winning French captain, began coaching the team in 2012. After coaching the team in two World Cups, Qatar will stand in the dugout for the third time in the World Cup. All in all, he will leave the post this time after coaching in the fifth major tournament, rumors are circulating through French news.

If that happens, Zidane's path will be empty. The former French captain is also fully prepared for this role. The president of the French Football Federation, Noel Le Graet, also hinted at something similar. Last year he said, ‘He’s the one I like. Zidane will one day coach the French national football team. When? I don't know. "
