A recent report suggested that former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane won’t be taking over the managerial role at Paris Saint-Germain with his eyes on the France national team. However, the rumor might not be entirely dead.
RMC Sport reports Zidane does not want to join Paris this summer; within the club, some people are still active in trying to recruit the 49-year-old. The French media outlet adds that behind the scenes, hope has not entirely disappeared.
“Today, at the club, there are people who are working for the arrival of Zidane,” Daniel Riolo said on After Foot RMC. “I will say something sure and certain – to as we speak – extremely important PSG players, those who stayed when we didn’t think they were going to stay, are convinced that Zidane will be their coach.”
