The former politician also claimed that the journalists were very friendly towards Zidane. He added sarcastically: “Create a brochure for him so he can find a new club.” Lou Greet’s disrespectful remarks brought a lot of criticism.

Los Blancos, who have strongly supported “Zizou”, may stand out as the beneficiaries of history.

Rumors of a real comeback

In addition to a possible participation in Brazil, Zidane is linked with a return to Los Blancos. According to the Spanish newspaper “Sport”, club president Florentino Perez is trying to find a job for Zidane at Real Madrid. It is not explained in more detail what the post should be.

Of course, the job as a coach would be obvious – Zidane’s job title. With the 50-year-old, who has already served twice as Madrid coach (from January 2016 to May 2018 and from March 2019 to June 2021), Real Madrid have won the Champions League three times and two Spanish Championships.

But with another stint as a real coach, it could be tough – at least for the time being. Carlo Ancelotti, who led Real Madrid to victory last year, still has a contract until 2024. According to the Italian, he would like to fulfill it.

Ancelotti: “I won’t budge”

“My contract runs until June 30, 2024. If Real Madrid doesn’t fire me before then, I won’t move.” He said recently when there were rumors about Brazil. From a sporting point of view, Perez and co have little reason to sack Ancelotti these days.

Although it was recently the second defeat of the season (1: 2 against FC Villarreal, ed.), which resulted in a three-point deficit against leaders Barcelona, ​​​​in general, Real plays with the aim of achieving ambitious goals in all competitions. in target.

What other options can Zidane have? The former world class player is said to see his future in football after Deschamps’ extension, according to information from L’Equipe. However, he just wants to sign up with a club where he can win trophies right away.

A job at Juventus is unlikely

This would refer to Italian heavyweight Juventus Turin, Which Zidane has been linked to recently, incorrect. The Old Lady, whose coach Massimiliano Allegri has been counted out for some time, missed the Champions League last 16 as they finished third in the group. Juventus are second, but leaders Napoli are already seven points ahead.

Due to the current lack of vacancies, Zidane’s job search will likely continue for the time being.
