France coach Didier Deschamps thinks it likely that Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane will one day take over the Tricolore team.
“His success as a coach has given him great credibility in this business. He already had the legitimacy, now he also has the credibility,” said Deschamps at a press conference, adding: “It is likely that he will turn me on one day the bank. “
Deschamps, who became world and European champion as a player together with Zidane, still has a contract until after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Zidane’s working paper at Real expires in summer 2022.
A report by Telefoot According to Zidane, he wants to stay in Madrid for another year after the end of the contract, after which he would theoretically be available as Deschamps’ successor. The 48-year-old, who played 108 times for France as a player, has already signaled that he can envision the job as a national coach.
