A few days ago, French legend Thierry Ory said that Zinedine Zidane is waiting to take charge of the French national team after the World Cup. However, the board of France poured water on Ori’s prediction. France Football Federation (FFF) signed a new contract with Didier Deschamps until 2024 after reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup. And on Saturday (January 7), Desham’s contract was extended by another two years till the 2026 World Cup. Then the question arose, where is Zidane’s future?
He left Real Madrid in 2021 after serving as coach for two terms. After that, the 50-year-old French legend did not join anywhere else. Zidane’s name was sometimes linked with the Italian club Juventus. But it remains a rumour. Zidane played five seasons at the Italian club.
Many people started questioning Zidane after Desham’s new contract. The question now is whether Zidane’s future will be stuck at the club or which national team the French legend will take charge of. However, for some time now, the talk of taking charge of the Brazilian national team with Zidane has been coming up. But even though it has been a rumor for so long, the rumor has given birth to a new branch in Desham’s new deal.
Tite stepped down from Brazil after the Latin superpowers’ exit from the World Cup quarter-finals. Zidane’s name came up as his alternative. With France’s door closed, many believe the five-time world champions could now turn their hand to Zidane. However, Zidane has many hurdles to become the coach of Brazil. Because the selectors of Brazil do not want foreign coaches to come to their team. Apart from this, there are linguistic problems.
But now another new rumor is being heard about Zidane. And that is the responsibility of the US national team. However, several European media, including Lekip, say that Zidane has already turned down the interesting offer made by the United States.
