Zinedine Zidane has not agreed to take on the managerial job at Paris Saint-Germain, according to his representative.
The French champions are expected to part ways with current boss Mauricio Pochettino – a process that will likely be accelerated after Luis Campos was appointed as the club’s sporting advisor.
90min understands that as previous reports have suggested, Zidane is indeed in Qatar right now, though it’s not known whether this is to meet with PSG’s hierarchy despite their long-term interest in appointing him.
And Zidane’s advisor, Alain Migliaccio, has told L’Equipe that his client has not agreed to take the reins at Parc des Princes despite fresh reports claiming otherwise.
“All these rumours circulating are unfounded, To date, I am the only person admitted to represent and advise Zinedine Zidane. Neither Zinedine Zidane nor I have been contacted directly by the PSG owner,” he said.
Listen now to 90min’s brand new podcast, Talking Transfers, with Scott Saunders, Graeme Bailey & Toby Cudworth. This week Harry Symeou steps in for Scott and the trio discuss the futures of Bukayo Saka, Rafael Leao, Romelu Lukaku, Kalvin Phillips, Youri Tielemans, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Raphinha, Gabriel Jesus and more.
Migliaccio went on to cast doubt over PSG’s interest in Zidane, adding: “I also strongly doubt that His Majesty the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamin Bin Hamad Al Thani, is used to going through social networks or the media to manage his affairs and make crucial decisions concerning the future of PSG. I’m not even sure he’s really interested in Zinedine Zidane coming.”
