As Pochettino’s future remains uncertain, Zidane has been linked with the coaching position at PSG.
According to the most recent information circulating in France, Christophe Galtier is the favorite to succeed Pochettino, who has previously expressed his desire to coach the Parisian club to Nice officials.
Despite rumors tying former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane to Paris Saint-Germain, French President Emmanuel Macron has backed him to return to the country as a manager.
“I haven’t spoken to Zidane, but I have immense admiration for him as a player and as a manager, and we really want to have him in our championship.” he told RMC Sport in an interview.
He went on, saying: “We really want a sportsman and a coach of this talent in this championship- one who was able to win three big cups (the Champions League) that we covet for our clubs. I hope that, for the standing of our championship in France, he comes back, and that he comes and manages a big French club. That would be great!”
“My role is to say that France is a huge sporting nation, a huge footballing nation, that has a great sport-loving public. It’s important for us that the best that we have trained, who have then perhaps shone internationally, can come back.”
History of Zidane as a coach
From 2016 to 2018, and again from 2019 to 2021, the French icon was the manager of Real Madrid.
He was the first coach to win the Champions League three times in a row, as well as two La Liga titles and two Club World Cup titles.
