Leaving Madrid, Zidane Favored to Coach French National Team

Zinedine Zidane

PARIS, NNC - Zinedine Zidane suddenly decided to resign from his position of Real Madrid coach after winning the third consecutive Champions League title.

Despite not yet deciding where he will continue his career, the French national team is favored to be Zidane’s next job.

The position of France coach is currently held by Didier Deschamps. Deschamps did not deny about the possibility that Zidane will become coach of the French national team someday.

"As someone who knows Zidane, any decision he makes is because he believes this is the best for him. Now he wants to rest and spend time with his family," Deschamps said as quoted by Marca.

"Certainly one day he will be coach of the national team. I can not say when, but this seems logical," Deschamps added.

Deschamps is still under contract until 2020. But his achievements with Les Blues is nothing special. He failed to bring France to win the 2016 European Cup champions held in their own country. While in the 2014 World Cup, Deschamps only managed to take France to the quarterfinals.

Therefore, if he fails again at the 2018 World Cup, there is a chance that Deschamps will be kicked out and replaced by Zidane.
