Zidane is learning English - Petit heats up Man Utd job rumors

Sat 20 November 2021 | 16:05

World Cup winner Emmanuel Petit has claimed that Zinedine Zidane is learning English, a claim that has fueled rumors that the former Real Madrid boss is close to the Manchester United bench.

Due to the

Red Devils

' poor results along with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the pressure on the Norwegian man is increasing day by day, and now if the rumors about Zidane learning English are true, it can be concluded that the French man may be seen in Old Trafford soon. 

"

Communication is very important, so if you do not speak the language when you arrive at a club like Manchester United, that could be a big problem," 

Petit took bookmakers.co.uk. 

"I've been told that he has been learning English recently, so I think he knows it's important for his career, but Zinedine being linked with Manchester United – I don't believe it, to be honest.

"Of course, he's a big name but he never played in the Premier League and has very little connection with it, so as I said, I don't believe it."

Zidane's inability to speak English will be an obstacle to his success at Manchester United. He won three Champions Leagues and two La Liga titles at

Real Madrid

, where he was praised for his managerial skills. It may be difficult for Zidane to make the same impact in the Premier League unless he learns the language quickly.
