French Football Federation (FFF) president, Noel Le Graet, says he expects Zinedine Zidane to coach France in the future, describing it as a “logical continuation”.
Zidane has made a seamless transition from player to coach, leading Real Madrid to Champions League and La Liga glory in 2016/2017, having also sealed European glory in his maiden campaign.
The former France captain, who won the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000 as he amassed 108 international caps, is now seen as a future coach of the national team.
“That is a logical continuation,” Le Graet told RMC radio.
“It is likely that one day he will be interested.
“For the moment I think he still has a lot to give to Real and the club suits him perfectly.
“I can’t believe what he is doing. I spoke to him two or three years ago, and at the time I was strongly advising him to go to Bordeaux or somewhere else, to start his career at a Ligue 1 club or somewhere more modest.”
