The French coach has not led a team in the past year and is said to be considering joining PSG.


Real Madrid

boss Zinedine Zidane has not ruled out a move to

Paris Saint-Germain

or a replacement for Didier Deschamps.

Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino has not yet been sacked, but he is expected to leave Paris this summer, with rumors suggesting he could be replaced by


boss Christophe Galtier or Zinedine Zidane. The French, who won three Champions League and two La Liga titles with Real Madrid, left the team in 2021 and did not lead any team in the past year. Now, in an interview to mark his 50th birthday, he did not deny the rumors of his presence in PSG.

He said:

"Never say never. Especially when you are a coach today, but the question is moot. This is absolutely irrelevant. When I was a player, I had a choice, almost every club.

"As a coach, there are not 50 clubs where I can go. There are two or three possibilities. This is the current reality. As coaches, we have much less choice than players. If I go back to a club, it's to win. I say this with all modesty. That's why I can't go anywhere. For other reasons, too, I might not be able to go everywhere.

"The language, for example. Some conditions make things more difficult. When I'm asked: 'Do you want to go to Manchester?' I understand English but I don't fully master it. I know there are coaches who go to clubs without speaking the language, but I work differently. To win, many elements come into play."
