I was told he had learned English recently, so I think he knows it’s important for his career, but Zinedine at Manchester United? I don’t think so, to be honest. Sure he’s a big name, but he’s never played in the Premier League and has very little connection to her, so like I said, I don’t believe it ”, declared Emmanuel Petit in remarks relayed by the Daily Mail.
