Zinedine Zidane is considered the favorite to replace Didier Deschamps as France coach after the Blues failed to make it through the knockout stages of Euro 2020.
The Frenchman is gone Real Madrid this summer after an unsuccessful season in which he did not win any trophies but reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.
According to various reports, when he made the decision to leave Real Madrid, Zidane excluded from coaching another elite European club in the near future.
As reported by Italian media, the 49-year-old coach was approached by Juventus when they were looking for a talented technician to succeed Andrea Pirlo and before rehiring Massimiliano Allegri.
Noel Le Graet, president of the French Football Federation (FFF), confirmed that the current boss of the Blues Didier Deschamps will be in charge of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, but doubts have grown and Zidanethe odds decrease with the bookmakers.
Coaching a national team seems ideal for Zidane at the moment, as he would be allowed to stay in Madrid and travel to watch matches, attend training camps and participate in tournaments with France.
Plus, he’ll avoid the stressful daily routine of a club and everything to do with training sessions, constant movement and games week after week.
Should Deschamps quit his position as boss in France, Laurent Blanc, Arsène Wenger and Thierry Henry would also be in contention.
