Zidane at Manchester United, it’s validated!


By: Manu Tournoux

Again mentioned on the Manchester United side, Zinedine Zidane could be seduced by the Red Devils’ proposal. In any case, it corresponds to what he is looking for according to Loïc Tanzi.

After almost three years without training, Zinedine Zidane still arouses just as much desire. Or fantasies. In recent weeks, his name has been mentioned by Bayern Munich, officially in search of a new coach for next season following the announcement of the departure of Thomas Tuchel, and by Manchester United, where Erik ten Hag is more than ever in the hot seat. As much because of the results of the Red Devils as the arrival of INEOS.

Zinedine Zidane is certainly not the only technician on the short list of new Mancunian decision-makers. But according to Foot Mercato, the 1998 Ballon d’Or would be the priority of several of them, including Jean-Claude Blanc, expected to become the new general manager of Man Utd. And for Loïc Tanzi, the Red Devils have what it takes to seduce the former playmaker.

“He will have full powers”

For me, apart from Juventus and Real, it is the club in Europe that allows him to rebuild and start from scratch. And that’s what he wants. Liverpool still do not have a sporting director, there is no structure established for next season. While in Manchester, above Zidane it is very clear, thus confided the journalist of The Team on the set L’Equipe de Greg. And if he comes in behind, he will have full powers to build the team. Apart from the Blues, this is the best position. But be careful, I don’t think Ineos makes all the decisions on the sporting level.

Manchester United will nevertheless face a major obstacle: Zinedine Zidane does not master English sufficiently for his liking. “ When someone says to me: “Do you want to go to Manchester?” I understand English but I don’t fully master it. I know there are coaches who go to clubs without speaking the language. But I work differently », He confided in the columns of L’Equipe, two years ago.
