Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane continues to be linked with Paris Saint-Germain. The capital club wants to bring in the French tactician as it seems they’re ready to move past Mauricio Pochettino, who has one more year left on his contract.
A recent report suggests that the Emir of Qatar is in regular content with Zidane. During an appearance on Cadena Ser, Luka Zidane was asked about the possible arrival of his father on the PSG bench next season.
The son of the former Real Madrid boss didn’t dive too much into the conversation, stating that football is the last thing on their minds when they’re together.
“I don’t talk about that with him. We talk about family, and not much else, not much football,” Zidane said.
“Like a father-son relationship, we talk about things in the house. Would it surprise me to see him in Paris? If he is happy, I will be happy. If he’s happy to coach PSG, that’s a good thing.”
Zidane reportedly wants the France national team job, but should Didier Deschamps remain at the post; then he’ll have to look at another job, possibly with PSG, if he wants to get back into coaching.
Furthermore, if the French giants want to pull the ultimate wild card that can keep Kylian Mbappé, hiring Zidane might entice the 23-year-old to remain in his hometown.
