Reports in L’Equipe today suggest that Real Madrid Assistant Coach Zinedine Zidane could be set to take over at Monaco.

The Ligue 1 big spenders are currently second in France’s top flight but it is rumoured that numerous players are unhappy with current Coach Claudio Ranieri’s methods.

Should the Italian be sacked, Russian billionaire owner Dmitry Rybolovev is said to be likely to turn to the former French international.

It is hoped that Zidane’s exploits as a player would enable him to handle the egos of the club’s star players.
