‘I won’t go to a team I haven’t played as a player in!’… The world’s best manager, refused to enter the EPL
Former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane, who is considered one of the world’s best players, having won three consecutive European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) titles. Having been unemployed since leaving Real Madrid in 2021, it looks like he will finally find a new job.
As the managerial vacancy of the English Premier League (EPL) clubs continued recently, expectations for Zidane’s entry into the EPL were high. Both Chelsea and Tottenham have consistently reported that Zidane has been named as a candidate for the next manager.
However, it is speculated that this wish will not come true. There is a team that coach Zidane wants. It is Juventus, the best club in Italy’s Serie A. Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is expected to step down at the end of this season.토토사이트
France’s ‘RCM’ said: “Zidane will return as manager next season. We will not push Allegri out, but Zidane wants Juventus at the helm. There is no possibility of a return. The priority is Juventus.”
Then, the media explained, “It is not certain whether Juventus will be able to go to the UCL next season. However, Zidane can take the helm of Juventus and focus on the long-term project. For Zidane, the frustration of entering the UCL will not be a problem at all.” did.
Unfortunately, the teams Zidane wanted were limited to the teams he played for.
In the meantime, coach Zidane received offers from Paris Saint-Germain and the U.S. national team, but turned them down. The team Zidane wanted the most was the French national team. He is the team he was a symbol of. However, this dream was shattered when manager Didier Deschamps succeeded in renewing the contract.
Afterwards, proposals from many teams came, but teams that they did not experience directly rejected them. Real Madrid, where he was the only manager, was the team Zidane played as a player from 2001 to 2006, and Juventus, which was designated as a priority, also played from 1996 to 2001. Juventus is a team that has made Zidane’s influence known worldwide.
