PSG: Zinedine Zidane appointed earlier than expected?

It’s no longer a secret. Zinedine Zidane is the priority of the leaders of the PSG to become the next coach of the club of the capital. And if he was not expected before next season, he could be appointed earlier than expected given the current performance of the team led by Mauricio Pochettino.

Doubts are accumulating more and more around the Argentine coach. Some locker room executives are even starting to seriously doubt the former defender’s abilities. Because if the vice-champion of France comfortably occupies the head of Ligue 1, he still does not convince. Like his new sluggish performance on Sunday in Lyon (1-1). This new outing is far from having reassured just a month to find Real Madrid in 8e first leg of the Champions League at Parc des Princes.

Faced with this situation, and to avoid a new disillusionment on the European scene, the Parisian general staff could decide in the heart of the matter. According to reports from Spain, the leaders would try to convince Zinedine Zidane not to wait until the end of the season to sit on the Parisian bench, hoping to see him at the head of PSG before the confrontation against the Madrid club. But the mission promises to be complex. For two reasons.

Free since leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season, he decided to cut for at least a year to recharge his batteries and spend time with his family before taking on a new challenge. He would also not be very motivated to start his new challenge against his old formation, which he left less than a year ago. So many reasons that make his arrival in the coming weeks very complicated.

Parisian leaders will therefore have to find the right arguments to succeed in making him change his mind. And time is running out if they want him to be in place ahead of Carlo Ancelotti’s long-awaited reunion with Real Madrid.
