Ready to wait for the coaching position to become available, Zinedine Zidane has not yet contacted the French Football Federation. President Noël Le Graët first wants to discuss with the current coach Didier Deschamps.
Zinedine Zidane shows his ambition. Transparent, the former Real Madrid coach has confirmed that he wants to become coach of the France team. And why not in a few months after the 2022 World Cup, when Didier Deschamps’ contract will end? This is obviously not Noël Le Graët’s priority. Invited on the set of Télématin, the president of the French Football Federation denied any contact with Zinedine Zidane.
Le Graët and his friend Deschamps
But above all, the leader emphasized his special bond with the current coach. ” Zidane, I know him well but for the moment, you know my attachment to Didier Deschampstempered the boss of French football. He (Zidane) says ‘if the place is free’ so he doesn’t want to steal from him. I never broached the subject with Zidane, that’s not correct. I get on perfectly well with Didier, we are living an unusual adventure, we have been working together for ten years. Ten years of friendship and ten years of good results. »

” If Didier Deschamps will be there after the World Cup? We do not know. It will depend on his desire, I will receive Didier in the coming days at Guingamp to chat and see what state of mind he is in.said Noël Le Graët. We can’t decide like that, it will be after the World Cup. For the next coach, it will be up to the next president of the FFF to decide. I can’t decide. Nothing very reassuring for Zinedine Zidane who has just refused an offer from Paris Saint-Germain.
