Zidane eying French job

PARIS (AP) – Former France great Zinedine Zidane says he would be interested in taking charge of the national team once he’ll get more experience under his belt.

Zidane, 42, served as an assistant coach to Carlo Ancelotti last season at Real Madrid and is now coaching the club’s reserve team.

Zidane, who had been linked to the head coaching position at French club Bordeaux before taking over Madrid’s reserves, told La Provence newspaper that he is interested in the job.

The former Juventus and Real midfielder said “I’m ambitious. I wore this shirt and now that I’m on the other side of the fence, this is an option.”

The France team is currently coached by Didier Deschamps, who played alongside Zidane when France won the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000.
