According to Libertad Digital, Zinedine Zidane would not hurry back into management but is interested in guiding the French squad when the position becomes open.

The Frenchman’s second term as Real Madrid manager terminated at the conclusion of the season, when he was replaced by Carlo Ancelotti.

Zidane won three Champions League wins and one La Liga trophy during his first tenure as Madrid manager.

His second spell was less successful, as he won only one La Liga title in 2019/20 and finished the previous season empty-handed.

At the moment, none of Europe’s heavyweight clubs are seeking to employ a manager, and Zidane intends to wait until the French national team management position becomes open.

Didier Deschamps, Zidane’s 1998 World Cup-winning teammate, has been in charge of Les Bleus since 2012.

France reached the final of the 2016 European Championships under his supervision before winning the World Cup two years later.

Les Bleus are one of the pre-tournament favorites to win the forthcoming European Championships. If they succeed, Deschamps will have won the World Cup and Euros with his native France as a player and manager.

Deschamps is set to lead France to the 2022 World Cup but may resign after the tournament, allowing Zidane to take over.
