Announced on the bench of Paris Saint-Germain or the France team, Zinedine Zidane has never discussed the Blues with Noël Le Graët, assures the president of the FFF.
However, the way seems clear… Long coveted by Paris Saint-Germain, Zinedine Zidane did not become the new coach of the capital club this summer, a position which was awarded to Christophe Galtier. And it bolsters the prospect of seeing the former Real Madrid boss take charge of the France squad after the 2023 World Cup.
Questioned this Thursday in the program Télématin, on France 2, Noël Le Graët however wished to calm the game. “Zidane, I know him well, but you know my attachment to Didier Deschamps. I get on perfectly well with Didier. We live an unusual adventure, we have been working together for ten years. Ten years of friendship, ten years of good results »recalled the president of the French Football Federation.

We can’t decide it like that.”replies Le Graët, indicating that it will be above all a question “envy” for “DD”, and that the decision will in any case be made ” after “ the World Cup in Qatar.
Even if he has already confided in the past that Zidane had everything he needed to one day become coach of the Blues, Le Graët assures that he has not ” never “ directly discussed the subject with the former number 10 of the Blues. “That wouldn’t be right”added the Breton leader.
