What Zinedine Zidane Said about Becoming Manchester United Boss

What Zinedine Zidane Said about Becoming Manchester United Boss

Zinedine Zidane has since indicated that he has no plans to take over at Manchester United because he has no desire to manage in England.

That’s according to his agent Alain Migliaccio, who previously spoke out about the prospect of the legend one day managing at Old Trafford, saying: “It does not really attract him”.

Zidane was once loosely linked with the Manchester United manager’s job towards the end of Jose Mourinho’s tenure in 2018, following his first stint in charge of Los Blancos.

He later returned to Real Madrid after a year out, with Manchester United missing out.

Zidane’s agent Alain Migliaccio said at the time: “I do not think that he will manage in England. It is much less his style. I have discussed it with him, it does not really attract him.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been in charge of Man United since 2018 but is yet to win silverware at Old Trafford.

The Norwegian came close last season, with the Red Devils losing in the Europa League final to Villarreal.

This time, Solskjaer has the likes of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo to call upon.

But the arrival of these three players has only put further pressure on the Man United boss to finally win a trophy.

Last time out the Red Devils were beaten 2-1 by Swiss minnows Young Boys in the Champions League.

United did lose a man after Aaron Wan-Bissaka was shown a straight red card for a late challenge, but some poor tactical decisions from Solskjaer saw the Red Devils throw away their lead.

Solskjaer said after the defeat: “We need 12 points to go through.

“You need to win your home games, win one away from home and go through. A missed opportunity tonight, of course, but then again last year we won our first two games against PSG and Red Bull [Leipzig] and everyone thought we were through.

“So we have five games to get the 10 or 12 points.”
