Consultant for Prime Video Sport, Thierry Henry is also in England for Sky Sports and CBS Sports. On the occasion of his presence on the set of the last media in question, the 98 world champion spoke about the future of Zinedine Zidane, his former teammate with the Blues, and on the rumors linking him to PSG./p>
What if Zinedine Zidane was the next PSG coach? Without a club since leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season, the French technician saw his name come back with insistence on the side of Paris Saint – Germain as part of a possible departure of Mauricio Pochettino who is for his part sent to Manchester United . Le10sport.com revealed to you exclusively on November 9 that the owners of PSG were keeping a close eye on the situation of Zinedine Zidane . Nevertheless, and although the first discussions seem to have already taken place between the Zidane clan and PSG , Thierry Henry is not optimistic about Zinedine Zidane coming to Paris because of his affiliation with Marseille.
“Zidane is still associated with Marseille, where he comes from, the team he supported when he was young…”
“If Zidane can be a good choice for PSG? I think so. The only problem I see and I know people will tell me it's not a big deal, but it is. He is regularly associated with Marseille. And we all know the rivalry between Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille… Manchester United? Zidane would not be interested at the moment. Why ? Because in the back of his mind, it seems to me that he is patient for the position in the national team, I am not saying that Didier Deschamps is about to leave or wants to leave. But I think he's got it in the back of his mind. Even if I don't see Pochettino leaving, I no longer see Zidane arriving at PSG. If Pochettino leaves, then the PSG post will be vacant for Zidane. But he is still associated with Marseille, where he comes from, the team he supported when he was young. And it would be a huge surprise if he went there (editor's note at PSG) “. said Thierry Henry , during a speech on the set of CBS Sports this Wednesday evening.
