Rejected by France, Zidane decides for his return

Passionate about sport, cinema and television (on screen and behind it) since childhood, Bernard has been a journalist for 10 Sport since 2018. More skilful with the keyboard in hand than with the ball, he decided to mainly cover a much-loved sport, criticized and hated both (football) and a sport that is not (wrestling).

While he had made no secret of his desire to take the reins of the France team, Zinedine Zidane will have to wait before fulfilling his objective. The extension of Didier Deschamps indeed forces the former Real Madrid technician to consider other options for his return to football, and he has already ruled out three prestigious leads.
