While his name has been mentioned with insistence in Brazil, where the Seleçao is in search of the successor of Tite, Zinedine Zidane would have been inspired to say yes, according to Christophe Dugarry.
More than three months after the disappointment experienced against Croatia in the quarter-finals of the World Cup and the resignation of Tite, the Seleçao is still without a coach. While waiting for the appointment of the technician in charge of winning the sixth star, which has been awaited for more than twenty years by an entire country, it is Ramon Menezes who has been responsible for providing the interim, in particular for the friendly match against Morocco, the March 25.
But for many observers, there is little doubt that Carlo Ancelotti has already agreed with the leaders of the Brazilian federation to reach the end of the season. The Italian technician was high on the shortlist of Ednaldo Rodrigues, the president of the federation. But the Real Madrid coach was not the only coveted technician. Zinedine Zidane quickly became one of the CBF’s priorities. In vain, the native of Marseille not following up on the advances of the five-time world champions. To the great displeasure of Christophe Dugarry.
He’s the most Brazilian of the French
“Me, it’s personal, I would have loved him to go with Brazil. Brazilians love Zidane, he’s the most Brazilian of the French. They have a great generation. I would have loved him to go there. I didn’t tell him about it. But when I saw that his name came out for the Brazilian selection, I thought the story would have been magical.” thus entrusted the great friend of ZZ to the microphone of RMC.
According to the former Milanese, there is in any case no doubt that the 1998 Ballon d’Or is determined to find a bench. “It’s been tickling him for a while now, since he was ready to take over as coach of the France team if Deschamps left. He wants to come back to a club or a selection, he confirmed. If Deschamps remains four years, Zidane will not remain four years without doing anything. The logical next step is that he finds a club.
