‘Zinedine Zidane should become Monaco’s Head Coach’
Michel Platini feels Zinedine Zidane should start off his profession as a manager at AS Monaco. The Uefa chief executive has advised his fellow Frenchman to consider the reins at the Ligue 1 team, with the Real Madrid assistant expected to imminently take his initial leading employment.
Zidane is at the moment operating as Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant at Real Madrid and has been verbal of as a possible successor to the Italian at Santiago Bernabeu.
Even so, Platini thinks that his fellow French legend is now all set for a top job and is convinced that the Stade Louis II would be an perfect spot for the World Cup winner to cut his teeth, granted Les Rouges et Blancs are supported by Russian millionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev.
“If Zinedine wants to be a coach, it’s good to start with Monaco,” Platini told L’Equipe. “It is a good club that has means.
“He has spent a year with Carlo Ancelotti at Real. So, he’s ready. If he wants to do the job, he has to take the step.
“And if he wants to take charge of the French national team one day, it’s better that he starts with a club.”
Platini stated that Zidane does not lack aspirations and thinks the former Madrid attacking midfielder has what it takes to become a major coach.
“I have spoken to Zinedine and I know that he wants to commit himself,” the Uefa president continued.
“He has a name, he’s intelligent. He’ll be a very good coach.”
