Instead, Zidane’s focus is on France, confessing to L’Equipe that he has ‘incomplete organization’ with Les Bleus.
“I want to come full circle with the France team,” he stated. “I knew this France team as a player, and that’s the best thing that ever happened to me. It’s the pinnacle. The France team is firmly rooted in my head.
“I do not understand [if he will replace Didier Deschamps]. If it needs to occur, it will occur, then or not then. Today, a group remains in location, however if the chance follows, then I’ll exist. It’s not up to me, however my deep desire exists. The France group is the most lovely thing there is.”
He included: “When you are offered the France group t-shirt, it’s unique. My very first call-ups were unique. There were unbelievable gamers like [Eric] Cantona, [David] Ginola and [Laurent] Blanc. When you get a taste for Les Bleus, it’s splendid. It’s so strong, effective. The France group is whatever to me.”

Coaches have much fewer choices than players. If I go back to a club, it is to win. That’s why I can’t go anywhere. For other reasons, too, I might not be able to go everywhere.
“The language, for instance. Some conditions make things harder. When individuals state to me: ‘Do you wish to go to Manchester?’, I comprehend English however I’m not a master of it. I understand there are coaches who go to clubs without speaking the language, however I work in a different way.
“To win, many elements come into play. It’s a global context. I know what I need to win so, of course, I need at least this, this and this. I want everything on my side to optimise the chances of victory.”
