Monaco considering Zinedine Zidane as manager should Claudio Ranieri get the axe in summer [L’Equipe]
- April 10, 2014
Could Zinedine Zidane be at training with Dimitar Berbatov next season?
Several days after France Football announced that Zinedine Zidane is being primed to become the new Real Madrid manager in 2016, French daily L’Equipe have today linked the football legend with a big job in Ligue 1.
According to L’Equipe, Monaco are sizing up the possibility of getting Zidane as their coach next season should they choose to sack former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri this summer.
Despite having seen their title aspirations go down the toilet with Radamel Falcao’s injury back at the start of the year, Claudio Ranieri has guided Monaco to second place in Ligue 1 and a Champions League place for next season looks guaranteed.
Whether the Tinkerman deserves the chop is up for debate, however L’Equipe believe that Monaco’s owner, Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, is not convinced that Ranieri can take the club any further and is considering a change.
Despite having never managed a team to-date, Zidane would obviously a coup for Monaco. Not only would Zizou help raise the profile and the brand on AS Monaco, but the belief is that Zidane would help the Principality attract the highest calibre of players whom the club currently still believe they cannot get.
L’Equipe close their article noting that, to their knowledge, no contact has yet been made between Monaco and Zidane.
7 – Zinedine Zidane has lost 7 Ligue 1 games against Monaco as a player, more than against any other team. Prince ?
