French star Zinedine Zidane revealed that, “I still have the desire to continue training, I still have this torch, which is my passion, football,” in a television interview, leaving the ambiguity about his future as he refused to specify his future training destination.
Zizou said, “In a report dedicated to him by the program in honor of his fiftieth birthday, which he celebrates on the 23rd of this year, I am 50 years old, satisfied, I am happy, this is the most important thing.”
He stressed when asked about his desire to continue training after winning the Champions League three times in a row with Real Madrid in 2016, 2017 and 2018, “I do not dream of anything. I dreamed a lot, and got a lot of things.”
Also, the former “Rooster” star did not mention talks related to training the French national team, as his name is rumored as a possible replacement for the current coach, Didier Deschamps, whose contract expires at the end of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, which is scheduled from November 21 to December 18 next.
As for the French national team, the fate of Deschamps, who assumed his duties in 2012, will be decided after the end of the World Cup in Qatar.
Also, French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet confirmed Saturday during a press conference at the end of the General Assembly that he would meet the coach of the national team Deschamps in Guingamp in July, but “I will not discuss with him any extension of the contract.”
