Zidane « not interested » in Manchester United, according to BBC Sport


Courted by Manchester United to take over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, dismissed from his post on Sunday, Zinedine Zidane is not interested in the post, according to reports from BBC Sport.

Zinedine Zidane is unlikely to sit on the Manchester United bench. The French coach is well courted by the leaders of the English club to take over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, dismissed from his post this weekend after the slap received against Watford (4-1). But according to BBC sources, the Frenchman is not interested in joining the Red Devils at the moment.

« Zidane was never interested in the Premier League », says Fred Hermel

His name has recently been associated with Newcastle, the nouveau riche of world and English football. But again, the track closed quickly and the Magpies chose Eddie Howe. « Zidane has never been interested in the Premier League and probably never will be, » said Fred Hermel, Spanish football specialist for RMC Sport, at the time of these rumors.

Zidane has been free since leaving Real Madrid last summer. After a first successful period on the Madrid bench (2016-2018) with three consecutive coronations in the Champions League (2016, 2017, 2018) and a Liga (2017), he took over the club in 2019 to afford a new Liga in 2020, before slamming the door, bored, last summer. In an open letter published in the Spanish press, he said he was « injured » and regretted not feeling the confidence of the club. He had left the club a year before his contract ended.

The Blues … or the PSG?

Since then, the French have been enjoying their free time. According to an article in L’Equipe last July, Zidane would even be ready to remain without a club until the 2022 World Cup, a competition at the end of which Didier Deschamps will end his contract with the France team.

The former leader of the Blues would be ready to wait for the selection. In recent days, his name has also been mentioned on the side of PSG even if Mauricio Pochettino is currently in office, and under contract until 2023.
