Zidane wants to manage Manchester United

As the French newspaper L’Equipe reports, Zinedine Zidane, who left Real Madrid head coach post on 31st of May, has expressed his desire to become the manager of the English Manchester United.

The Frenchman began his coaching path in Los Blancos’ youth team Real Madrid Castilla and was chosen the acting manager of the first team after the dismissal of Rafael Benitez. In two and a half years of management of the Madridian club, the Frenchman brought the team to three victories in a row in the Champions League, which no previous coach managed to do for the same period. Apart from that, Los Blancos won the Spanish championship, the Spanish Super Cup, two UEFA Super Cups and two cups of the Club World Cup.

After saying goodbye to Santiago Bernabeu due to disagreements regarding the further future of the club and transfer campaign with Florentino Perez, the manager has been without a job for two months. Whereas Zidane had an offer to lead the national team of Qatar ahead of the home World Cup in 2022, but the manager refused even the salary of 50 million euros a year. As it became known on Wednesday, the reason for that is the interest of the three Ballon D’Or winner in Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho manages the Red Devils, however, constant disagreements in the team, the absence of a clear picture of the game on a distance and the championship in England lead to a fast departure of the Portuguese. It is predictable that Manchester United management doesn’t mind getting the best UEFA footballer for the past 50 years and the phenomenon in the team manager status to their head coach post.

Zidane feels players on the pitch and skillfully uses substitutes, which happened numerous times during the Champions League tournament path. However, whether the Frenchman needs such a challenge is still an open question. THe former Real Ten won various club trophies and returning only to repeat similar achievements with principal management under sights of British and World media is a dubious activity. More logical would be Zidane’s arrival to the national team of France with the task to win trophies on the international arena. However, the manager would have the support of sir Alex Ferguson, who back in the time of being Man Utd manager said, “give me ten logs and Zidane and I will win the Champions League.”
