It’s not like they are looking for someone to replace Didier Deschamps, even if they were they wouldn’t hope for Zinedine Zidane to be his successor, but judging by what the president of France’s Football Federation said, they have the Real Madrid coach in the back of their mind as a future boss of the national team.
That is a logical continuation. It is likely that one day he will be interested
Noel Le Graet told RMC radio, when asked about how possible it is to see Zidane one day lead the national team of France from the bench.
Interestingly, even funnily, Le Graet admitted that last time he talked to Zidane he advised him against taking up the job at Real Madrid, thinking that he should start off his coaching career at a more ‘modest’ club, preferably Bordeaux.
I can’t believe what he is doing. I spoke to him two or three years ago, and at the time I was strongly advising him to go to Bordeaux or somewhere else, to start his career at a Ligue 1 club or somewhere more modest
the FFF president said, surprised himself at how successful Zidane has been in his first two seasons as a Real Madrid coach.
