has been under intense pressure as they lost the game against third-tier side


in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday and it was after they were defeated to

in the Supercopa de Espana semi-finals.


Didier Deschamps

, who guided France to World Cup success in 2018, believes Zidane could replace him after his contract expires next year.

When he was asked whether Zidane could replace him, he said:

"Yes, obviously.

"I know this will be discussed again and it makes sense. It would be like going full circle.

"He always had a decisive element to his game and I never had a problem with that.

”Afterwards, everything he has done... Zizou is Zizou.”
