Zidane has attracted a lot of attention with his good performance on the bench of Real Madrid.
Didier Deschamps, the head coach of theFrench national team
, believes that Zinedine Zidane will one day become the head coach of this team.
Deschamps has a contract with the French national team until 2022 and has achieved remarkable success with this team. He led the Blues to their second World Cup title and became one of the three men to have won the World Cup, both as a player and as a coach. On the other hand, Zidane, who also has a contract withReal Madrid
until 2022, is the only coach who has won three consecutive Champions League titles.
“His success as a coach has given him a lot of credibility on the bench,”
Deschamps said according toDiario AS
“He had the legitimacy, but now he has the credibility. It’s probable that one day he could succeed me on the bench.”
Zidane played 108 games for the French national team between 1994 and 2006, winning the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000. He was also the star of the team that reached the 2006 World Cup final and lost on penalties to Italy.
