According to several concordant sources, Mauricio Pochettino, under contract until 2023, will not be retained by PSG at the end of the current season and the Parisian club will therefore have to find a new coach. On this subject, many names have been circulating in recent weeks (Tale, Löw, Motta) but no track seems very concrete at the moment.
Free of any contract since leaving Real Madrid in June 2021, Zinedine Zidane is also regularly associated with PSG, the newspaper Le Parisien recalling a few days ago that the Frenchman was still the priority of the club of the French capital. “But if the project proposed by PSG interests Zizou, the 1998 world champion has never given an agreement for next season”, tempered the regional daily. This source also reported that the 49-year-old still hoped to take the reins of the France team at the end of the calendar year, at the end of the contract of Didier Deschamps, the current coach of the Blues.
“Zidane may take PSG”
Rightly questioned by L’Équipe on this possibility, Noël Le Graët, president of the French Football Federation, replied: “Already, you have to be careful what you say. Zidane has shown in Madrid that he has qualities that you hardly imagined. In the minds of the French, he can be a successor. But this n “It’s not my goal. We’ll see. If Didier and I separate, he will surely be one of the options”. A priority option? “I’m not saying to myself: ‘As long as Didier says no to me and I go see Zidane'”, replied the boss of 3F.
Without really knowing whether it was a simple intuition or an indiscretion, Noël Le Graët then mentioned a possible signing of Zidane at PSG: “Do you see me saying today: ‘Is Zidane going to replace Deschamps? We’ll see. Zidane might take on PSG. For the France team, you have to be free. But today, we are going to do everything to put Didier in the best conditions to win this World Cup”.
