The name of Zinedine Zidane has reappeared in the radars of PSG while Mauricio Pochettino has been criticized in recent weeks, in particular because of the game produced by his team. But the arrival of the former number 10 of the Blues on the Parisian bench seems however compromised.

A wish shared by Christmas Le Graët which would however have set a condition, namely that Zinedine Zidane be free at the end of 2022, when the World Cup in Qatar comes to an end and the contract of Didier Deschamps will end.
