Zinedine Zidane 'to manage next season'

World Cup winner Zinedine Zidane is set to take on his first head coaching job next season, according to his former international teammate Didier Deschamps.

Zinedine Zidane has much to teach Gareth Bale, on and off the pitch.
Zidane is rated as one of the greatest players to have graced the game.

Zidane, 41, is currently assistant manager at Real Madrid but he has been strongly linked with replacing former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri at Monaco.

That speculation is set to intensify after Ranieri’s side were beaten in the French Cup semifinal on Wednesday by relegation-threatened Guingamp.

Deschamps, who won the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000 playing alongside Zidane, told BFM TV that the former World Player of the Year is ready to begin his managerial career. 

“He’s decided to start,” the France national team manager said. “He wants to start from next season but I don’t think he knows where at the moment.”

UEFA president Michel Platini recently suggested that Monaco would be a suitable place for Zidane to begin. Deschamps, a former manager of the principality club, agreed that it could be a good option.

“He needs to be with a team with which he’ll be able to be efficient, because you see the expectation," he added.

“From one day to the next Zizou the player will disappear and he will be judged on his role as a coach and his results.”

Zidane admitted earlier this season that he would like to become a manager and Deschamps said that he did not see him starting off at a small club.

Former Marseille coach Elie Baup said last month that Zidane could follow in his footsteps by taking charge of his hometown club.
