Former Real Madrid Manager Zinedine Zidane has insisted he did not leave his Real Madrid post just so he could take over as France coach.
“The most important thing is to support the team of France,” Zidane said. “I didn’t stop to want to take the team of France. I stopped to make a parenthesis. I’m behind the French team. We want it to bring back a second title.”
Zidane claims to have made no decision on his immediate future as yet, with a welcome break being enjoyed after a stressful but successful period at the Santiago Bernabeu helm.
Zidane made the shock decision to resign as Madrid head coach just days after leading the Liga giants to a third straight Champions League title.
