Foot: Zidane would have refused to take the reins of the United States selection


Without a coach for a few days, the American selection, qualified for the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar, would have tried Zinédine Zidane. In vain.

Where will “Zizou” end?

While for many observers and supporters, the France team held out its arms to him, the 1998 world champion will have to wait.

His former captain, Didier Deschamps, was extended until 2026 at the head of the Blues.

Zinédine Zidane must therefore take his troubles patiently before finding the team vice-world champion in title.

In the meantime, the former Real Madrid coach (2016-2018, then 2019-2021) has been unemployed for 18 months and the end of his contract on June 30, 2021 in the Spanish capital.

If the former number 10 of the Blues seems to be playing the card of patience, the desire rises every day a little more among his followers to see “ZZ” take up a bench.

And his name is circulating everywhere.

Zidane would have refused a selection

Coach or coach?

Doubts remain over Zidane's next job.

In recent weeks his name has returned with insistence on the side of Brazil.

The country with five World Cups has been an orphan since the departure of Tite, following his failure in Qatar.

It is another selection, present in the round of 16 at the last World Cup, which came to the news.

According to


, the American selection would have approached Zinédine Zidane.

Beaten 3-1 by the Netherlands in the round of 16 in Qatar, the United States have not had a coach since December 31, 2012. Appointed in December 2018, Gregg Berhalter was not extended at the end of the last World Cup.

So here are the Americans, who will host the 2026 World Cup along with Canada and Mexico, without a coach.

Zinedine Zidane reportedly simply and politely rejected the proposal.

Expecting certainly more enticing.
