Former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane open to managing PSG in the future

The ominous handwriting on the wall is pointing to OGC Nice manager Christophe Galtier being touted as the next Paris Saint-Germain boss.

French tactician Galtier wasn’t their first choice as the capital club had its eyes first on former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane but their pursuit was in vain as Zidane’s gaze is fixated on the France national team job. In the possible event of Didier Deschamps deciding to exit from his role following the FIFA World Cup, the former Real Madrid manager will unquestionably want that position as his first choice.

Nonetheless, the 49-year-old was queried by L’Equipe whether he would ever consider taking the job at PSG in the future and Zidane left the door open on the possibility of leading the capital club down the road if the situation is thumbs up all the way for him.

“Never say never. As a manager, there aren’t 50 clubs where I can go. There are two or three possibilities,” Zidane said.

In the event that Deschamps stays with Les Bleus past this World Cup, it will then depend on how Galtier fares as PSG manager, whether he succeeds or not, to see if PSG are still keen on Zidane.
