Real Madrid announced that Zinedine Zidane has decided to resign as the club’s manager. The former football star steps down with immediate effect and will not wait until summer. Therefore, it’s time to bet on Zidane’s next job.
On May 27, Real Madrid officially announced that its head coach Zinedine Zidane has decided to quit. The decision to resign as a manager with immediate effect was somewhat predictable after the club’s fiasco in La Liga: Real finished second with 84 points after another Madrid club, Atletico.
What will Zinedine do next? The French football star is predicted to coach another club, according to online gambling sites in France. Let’s see what awaits both Zidane and Real Madrid after its manager’s resignation.
Bet on Zidane’s next job: to coach Juventus or PSG
As soon as news about Zidane’s resignation hit the headlines, football fans started making predictions about the manager’s next club. According to one of the most popular theories, Zinedine will reunite with his favorite player next season in Italy.
Surely, we are talking about Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus. The club adores Zidane aka its former star; he has been playing in Italy from 1996-2001. In his turn, Zinedine often refers to Ronaldo as one of his favorite players. The reason is obvious: these two were unstoppable during Zidane’s stay as a manager of Real Madrid. So, the player and the coach can reunite again, this time in Italian Juventus.
Following online sportsbooks in France, Zidane can go back to his motherland and coach Paris Saint Germain. Like Real, PSG has also failed last season: the club lost the lead to Lille with just one point difference. Although the second place and 82 points don’t look like a bad result, it is a disaster for the French club that has won Ligue 1 for three consecutive years and six times in the 2010s.
Therefore, PSG is highly likely to invite Zidane to replace the club’s manager Mauricio Pochettino. Another option for him is to coach the France national team where Zidane has been playing for twelve years. Anyway, Zidane’s reunion either with the French club or the country’s national team is something everyone is waiting for.
