While Zinedine Zidane is urged to take over as PSG coach, his connection to Marseille comes up often in the debate. Can this then be a brake for the native of Castellane? Reply.
This Tuesday, at a press conference, Mauricio Pochettino assured him, he is happy at PSG . A clear response to rumors about him leaving and on the side of Manchester United . However, there is no smoke without fire. An Argentinian arrival at the Red Devils is becoming more and more believable and at the same time, Qatar is also looking to the future as 10sport.com has revealed to you. And to replace him, Doha has a dream: Zinedine Zidane . Currently free, the former Real Madrid manager seems to be getting closer and closer to finishing at the Parc des Princes. A problem in the eyes of some, the image of Zizou is associated with Marseille. Although he has never played OM , he was born in the Phocaean city and his attachment to this city is very strong. Moreover, recently, Zinedine Zidane had once again proclaimed his love for Marseille, releasing: “Marseillais one day, Marseillais always? Ah yes! I am from Marseilles, to be sure. Even though a lot can happen… I left very young, I don't live here… But I come back from time to time and I know that I am Marseillais and that I will remain so for life ”.
The Marseille obstacle does not exist!
Obviously, given the rivalry between OM and PSG , this attachment of Zinedine Zidane to Marseille is talking. And that would also give rise to certain reflections for the main interested party. Indeed, as Le Parisien revealed, although he would be inclined to accept the challenge of PSG , he would have some fears about the possible repercussions this could have on those around him. Could this then block the arrival of Zidane on the Parc des Princes bench? In the eyes of Parisians, this would in any case not be a problem if we are to believe the information unveiled this Tuesday by Marca. Indeed, as explained by the Iberian media, this Marseille past of Zizou would not be an obstacle for PSG , given that the former number 10 of the Blues did not wear the jersey of OM during his career. If some Marseille voices are raised and oppose this arrival of Zinedine Zidane to PSG , the main party could therefore be reassured about the position of the Parisian management in this topic. To see now what will be the outcome of his reflection on this subject. And still it is also necessary that Mauricio Pochettino leaves his place on the Parisian bench. Although courted by Manchester United , the Argentine is under contract until 2023. Thus, compensation must be provided. To be continued…
