Paris Saint-Germain reportedly reunited with Zinedine Zidane to make the 49-year-old their new coach. The two parties are said to have met at the Royal Monceau Hotel, one of the most luxurious in Paris, to discuss prospects.
The PSG side reportedly attended with sporting Director Leonardo and JeanClaude Blanc, general manager of the club and good friend of Zidane, at the meeting.
The idea that was discussed is that Zidane, which is not ready to break his Sabbatical, would take the reins in the Parc of the Nence next summer.
The Argentine is already on shaky ground after his team’s poor performance in the Champions League this season (there was another one for Manchester United on Wednesday night) and there are many rumors that he could leave Paris for Manchester United.
The former Spurs manager was elusive when asked after that loss to City if he would be on the knockout bench of the Champions League.
“The players know our situation very well,” said Pochettino. “I think we live in a business where there are rumors, sometimes negative, sometimes positive, sometimes positive, sometimes negative. That’s what we say about the rumors.
Zidane seemed hoping to become the next French coach and Didier Deschamps seemed ready after the World Cup in Qatar. That’s what we say about the rumors.
