‘Zinedine Zidane will return to coaching’
- Enzo Zidane has backed his father, Zinedine, to return to football management in the near future, with the Frenchman linked heavily with Manchester United.
Zidane senior quit Real Madrid in the summer just days after winning the Champions League - his ninth trophy in two-and-a-half years at the Bernabeu.
And Enzo, who currently plays for Rayo Majadahonda in the Spanish second division, believes his dad has been reinvigorated by a spell away from the sidelines.
“My father loves football and he loves to coach, this is clear,' Enzo told Diario AS.
“It seems likely that he will return to
coaching soon but right now he is resting, and this is something that he needed to do. “Managing Madrid was beautiful for him but it was also hugely demanding and involved a mass amount of work, so he is now recovering.'
Enzo, 23, is one of four sons and started his career in Real Madrid's academy, but left for fellow Spanish side Alaves in 2017. He quit the club in January 2018 and joined LausanneSport in Switzerland, before agreeing to spend this season back on loan in Spain.His younger brother Luca is still at Real Madrid and is currently fourth choice goalkeeper.
