Zinedine Zidane ruled out of major managerial job – leaving Frenchman to reconsider his options

Zinedine Zidane will have to reconsider his options after one key managerial role has been ruled out for him. 

The Frenchman hasn’t managed since leaving Real Madrid in the summer of 2021, despite being linked with jobs such as Manchester United, Chelsea and the Brazil national team in recent years.

Instead, it seems Zidane has been waiting to take charge of the France national team, despite Didier Deschamps still being in situ ahead of Euro 2024. And, Zidane might have to wait a little while longer – or even consider his options entirely – after being ruled out of the role for at least another two years.

Indeed, Philippe Diallo, president of the French Football Federation (FFF) closed the door on the former Real Madrid and Juventus legend, suggesting Deschamps will continue until at least the 2026 World Cup – regardless of how France perform in Germany this summer.
