Frenchman, Zidane tipped to take over role in france


Barely twenty four hours after France legend announced his retirement at the bernabau, lots of offers are already rolling in.

Frenchman Deschamps expects Zidane to Coach France in the near future after showing qualities during his time at the club, Zinedine Zidane will “definitely” coach France at some point.

Deschamps current contract runs through to 2020 and he believes Zidane is a potential successor when he leaves the post.

“If I will be proud to hand him the keys of the French team? I don’t have them,” Deschamps joked at a news conference.

“It’s up to the president [of the French Football Federation, Noel Le Graet]. I don’t know what he [Zidane] decided.

I think for now, he wants to enjoy the rest, his family and loved ones. And then after, and as I said, he will definitely be a coach of the French team someday.

When? I cannot say. But it seems logical. It will happen when it happens.
