The Zinédine Zidane soap opera at Paris Saint-Germain unleashes passions. This Friday, Europe 1 learned that an agreement would have been reached between Zinédine Zidane and Paris Saint-Germain for the Marseillais to become a coach in the coming days. Information denied by his agent. The file should evolve in the coming days.
This is information that has triggered a tidal wave in the world of football. At the end of the morning on Friday, two very reliable sources announced to Europe 1 the existence of an unsigned verbal agreement in principle between Zinédine Zidane and Paris Saint-Germain to become the coach or join the club next season. .
But at the start of the afternoon, Zinédine Zidane’s historical agent, Alain Migliaccio, told the newspaper The Teamthat there is no direct contact with the leaders or the owner of Paris Saint-Germain. “Neither Zinedine Zidane nor myself have been contacted by the owner of PSG,” he categorically denied. And the nuance is important: that does not mean that there were no contacts.
An outcome that should take a few days
This Friday evening, Europe 1 spoke on the phone with a member of the PSG management who initially declared that “no”, there was no verbal or principle agreement with the Marseillais. But when this same member was again asked by the editorial staff of Europe 1 about any contact between the club and Zinédine Zidane, he replied: “That, I cannot deny it.”
We will have to wait to know the outcome of this soap opera: the evolution of the file may take a few days because of the weekend, but also because Mauricio Pochettino remains the current coach of the club. And if Zidane accepts, they will have to fine-tune the terms of his arrival in Paris.
