Zidane just a rumour

Zinedine Zidane

Bordeaux are refusing to confirm or deny whether Real Madrid assistant boss Zinedine Zidane is set for the manager’s job.

Reports in France had claimed Zidane was ‘90 per cent certain’ to take over for next season and Zidane has confirmed he wants to take a top job in the near future.

Francis Gillot is currently employed as Bordeaux coach and the club’s president, Jean-Louis Triaud, told RMC that the club’s next step isn’t confirmed.

“It’s a rumour and when the time has arrived to talk about next year’s team, we’ll talk,” Triaud said, according to AS.

Zidane has been linked with replacing Claudio Ranieri at Monaco.

He was named as one of Carlo Ancelotti’s assistants last summer, when the Italian was appointed from Paris Saint-Germain.
