Zidane expresses interest in coaching Bangladesh

Zinedine Zidane has expressed interest in coaching the Bangladesh national football team.

The French legend, who is in the country at the invitation of 2006 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Muhammad Yunus, was speaking during a visit to the villages on the outskirts of Dhaka City, where he addressed members of the Grameen Bank at its Kamal Bashulia Landless Women's Association.

'I'm overwhelmed with the enthusiasm of the people of Bangladesh,' said the 34-year-old star, according to The New Nation newspaper.

Zidane, who retired from the sport after the World Cup final earlier this year, has become even more famous around the world following his headbutt to the chest of Italian player Marco Materazzi in the final in Germany.

Upon being asked if he had any interest in Bangladeshi football, Zidane responded: 'I am not interested in playing here.

'But yes, I am interested in training the Bangladeshi team,' he added.

Zidane also took part in a football match for a few minutes, after which he departed the village.
