Paris Saint-Germain are seeking to replace Argentina’s Mauricio Pochettino as coach ahead of the 2022-2023 season and to persuade France’s famous midfielder Zinedine Zidane to coach the team.
The site said “Playish reportZidane, who has led Real Madrid for four years, is the best candidate to lead a star team led by Kylian Mbabane, Lionel Messi and Neymar.
Zidane helped France lead the team to the 1998 World Cup, the same year he was awarded the Ballon d’Or for World Player of the Year.
Real Madrid have won three consecutive Champions League titles since 2016 and 11 titles in two terms, including the Spanish League title in 2017 and 2020.
After the team was eliminated from the Champions League in the 16th round against Real Madrid, Zidane became the candidate to lead Paris Saint-Germain.
Paris Saint-Germain signed by Pochettino in January 2021. His current contract will last until June 2023.
“Europe 1” radio confirmed, “A preliminary agreement has been reached between Paris Saint-Germain and Zinedine Zidane so that the former No. 10 coach can take over the club from next season.”
If his visit to Paris is confirmed, the main task for the 1998 World Cup champion will be to win on the European stage because all those before him have failed since 2011, the Italian Carlo Ancelotti, the recent graduate. The main Continental rivalry with the Royal Club also ends with Argentina Pochettino, who could not be honored if he signed his final year with Saint-Germain.
