Noel Le Graet, President of the French Football Association FFF, sees Zinedine Zidane as a candidate for the post as a national coach-provided the 49-year-old does not take over at Paris Saint-Germain.

But at the moment we do everything we can to get the greatest possible chance of becoming world champion again.”
Rumors have long been about a farewell Deschamps’ after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Whether it would get serious with Zidane also depends on the former real coach himself.
“At the moment I don’t think: Hopefully Deschamps stops after the World Cup, then I can strive for Zidane. We’ll see what happens. Zidane could take on PSG. To be able to train France away.
