Zidane: Will be back ‘soon’

Former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has confirmed that ‘I’ll be coaching again soon’.

Zidane is currently out of work after leaving Madrid at the end of last season, despite leading them to three consecutive Champions Leagues.

Nonetheless, he told TVE: “Certainly I’ll be coaching again soon because it’s what I like doing and what I’ve done all my life.”

The Frenchman was speaking from La Rioja in Spain, where his son Elyaz played for Los Blancos’ Infantil A side, managed by Xabi Alonso.

It comes after the 46-year-old was linked with Manchester United and on the same day that The Mirror reported the Frenchman had already earmarked Toni Kroos, Thiago Alcantara, James Rodriguez and Edinson Cavani as targets.
