Zinedine Zidane would be very close to an agreement with the FFF to succeed Didier Deschamps. His arrival at the head of the France team would be almost certain, after the World Cup. The Basque would therefore play his last competition with the Blues.

According to information disclosed by the Spanish press (in particular the Mundo Deportivo and Telemadrid), Zinedine Zidane is close to returning to the benches. The technician is about to agree with the French Football Federation for the post of coach of the Blues. The former Madrid player should take the place of Didier Deschamps after the World Cup. David Bettoni would accompany him in particular in the adventure, as an assistant.

Zidane would have failed PSG

Zinedine Zidane should thus realize his dream which aimed to take the reins of the France team, after having had great success in club. As a reminder, the native of Marseille has won three Champions Leagues and two Ligas. Zizou has spent 263 games on the Real Madrid bench and hasn’t had any other assignments so far. As a player, he had also been stable and had only evolved with four clubs: Cannes, Bordeaux, Juventus of Turin and Real Madrid.

The technician would also have declined a proposal from PSG a few months ago. the Mundo Deportivo confirms that several meetings had taken place with the Parisian leaders and that his refusal came at the last moment. The Qataris saw in him the ideal coach to lead the reworked project during negotiations for the extension of Kylian Mbappé.

Provided that the information is true, Didier Deschamps therefore plays his last competition with the Blues. As a reminder, the native of Bayonne left OM for the bench of the France team in 2012: he has since led the selection 133 times, for a total of 85 wins, 26 draws and 22 defeats.
