Zidane at PSG, Marseille puts pressure on him

Holder of a Master’s degree in international law, I realized at the end of my university course that it was important to evolve in a field that we appreciate. Overnight, I decided to put an end to the dream of my parents, who saw me as a future lawyer, to live from my passion: sport. Since then, I have covered mercatos and sports news, trying to inform readers as well as possible.

Like last year, Zinédine Zidane is announced in the sights of PSG. He could land in Paris to replace Christophe Galtier, in the hot seat. But in Marseille, we refuse to see the local icon join the Parisian opponent. At each of his appearances in his hometown, the 1998 world champion is challenged by OM supporters.

As announced by 10Sport.com exclusively, the PSG has not yet contacted any coach to replace Christophe Galtier. But several names have already been noted on the management’s shortlist, in particular that of Zinédine Zidane. The 1998 world champion remains an old dream of the emir of Qatar, who wishes to attract him to Paris. But for a native of Marseilles, join the PSG almost an act of treason. And the supporters of theOM do not hesitate to recall it, affectionately, to Zidane.

OM supporters challenge Zidane in the street

Present at Marseilles for the inauguration of a medical center in February 2022Zinedine Zidane had been challenged by many Marseillais. “Not in Paris, not in Paris”, “Not in Paris Zidane”, “Please, not Paris!” could be heard in the crowd. Almost a year later, the same message was sent to the local star, present in the city. “Zidane we love you, don’t go to PSG” chanted a supporter of theOMwhile Zidane was jogging in the streets of Marseilles.

“In his head, he is too Marseilles”

But according to his former teammate, Lionel Charbonnier, Zinedine Zidane remains deeply attached to his hometown. ” To coach, you must have personal ties “ would have entrusted him the former coach of Real Madrid. A strong link also mentioned by Samir Nasry. “In his head, he is too Marseilles” said the former nugget of theOM. THE PSG is warned in this case.
