Marseille: Former France captain Zinedine Zidane, currently coach of the Real Madrid reserve side, admitted on Tuesday he would consider a coaching job with his native France.
The former World Player of the Year worked as Carlo Ancelotti's assistant as Real won the Champions League and Copa del Rey last season and is following in the footsteps of Pep Guardiola by beginning his career in management in the Spanish third tier.
"I'm ambitious. Now I'm a coach I say to myself 'why not be national coach?'," Zidane, 42, said in an interview published Tuesday in the daily La Provence newspaper.
