PSG remains open to the future regarding the technical command. Zinedine Zidane, who made history at Real Madrid as a coach, is rumored to be at the club. Despite being distant, according to information in the French press, he did not rule out coaching the Parisians one day.
“Never say Never. As a manager, there aren’t 50 clubs I can go to. There are two or three possibilities”, he told L’Équipe when asked about PSG.
At the moment, Christophe Galtier, from Nice, is the favorite to take the place of Mauricio Pochettino. The Portuguese Luis Campos, the club’s new director of football, shows interest in hiring the coach. According to L’Equipe, PSG has not yet defined how it will pay for the coach’s termination, but talks continue.
The same vehicle assured that Zidane will not take over Paris Saint-Germain at this time, despite speculation: “Zinedine Zidane will not be on the Parisian bench this time. But everything remains open to the future. His main objective is to become coach of the France national team. It is the end of a suspense that lasted several weeks,” the newspaper said.
Zidane dreams of coaching the French national team soon. Recently, the president of the French national team, Noel Le Graet, spoke about the possibility of the former player running the Les Blues: “He will make it to the national team one day. When? I don’t know,” he stated.
He has been without a club since leaving Real Madrid, where he made history with three Champions League and two La Liga titles, as well as other trophies. Zidane is an idol in French football and has won a World Cup and a European Cup as a player.
Still without a definition regarding the coach, PSG remains in doubt about some players. An outbound ‘barge’ may occur in this transfer window. Neymar, on the other hand, generates repercussions about a possibility of going to Juventus, but he must remain in France to play alongside Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi.
