Announced with insistence in the viewfinder of PSG in the event of the departure of Mauricio Pochettino, Zinedine Zidane is debating in Marseille. Eric Di Meco and Samir Nasri, both trained at OM, are also in complete disagreement on the subject.
As revealed exclusively by le10sport.com, while the future of Mauricio Pochettino is debated within the leadership of PSG , Qatar still dreams of attracting Zinedine Zidane , free from any contract since the end of his second adventure on the bench of Real Madrid . The arrival of one of the best players in the history of French football on the bench of the current most ambitious club in France would obviously be an event. But above all, it would cause many debates. And for good reason, native of Marseille, Zinedine Zidane has never hidden his affection for OM , although he has never played there during his career. The former coach of Real Madrid even assured the Phocéen recently that “even if I haven't played for OM, no one is going to take away from me the fact that I'm from Marseilles (laughs). “And while some PSG supporters are showing their reluctance to welcome Zinedine Zidane to Paris, Marseille side is also talking about this subject.
Zidane at PSG? Di Meco's “nightmare”
And of course, several Marseillais are not very keen on seeing Zinedine Zidane at PSG . This is particularly the case of Eric Di Meco . Trained at OM where he evolved for 14 years, the former left side is categorical on this subject. “Even in my most terrible nightmares, I can't imagine Zizou coaching PSG. He was born in Marseille, he was young like all Marseillais. You are a fan of OM and you come to the Stade Vélodrome. Afterwards, he made his career elsewhere, if one day he trains PSG he has the right. No one is going to blame him. But, here it would be a big blow to the morale for many Marseillais. It would make me weird. […] It would hurt me a little, ”he assures me at RMC's microphone.
Nasri“ would not be shocked ”
But not all Marseillais are also closed. Asked by Le Parisien, Samir Nasri , a native of Marseille and also trained at OL , shows much more enthusiasm: “Me that would not surprise me and I wouldn't be shocked if Zizou coached PSG. (…) When we have coached Real, we don't necessarily find better than City or PSG. (…) He has managed to prove that he knows how to take care of and manage the egos of great players. (…) When a guy like Zidane goes to tell Neymar or Mbappé to do this or that, they'll be more attentive than if he's another coach. And, in addition, it can also trigger a mechanism that could allow Mbappé to extend next season. “Therefore, if Zinedine Zidane signs to PSG , there is no doubt that the club of the capital will be more than ever at the heart of the discussions on the side of the Phocaean city.
