Former Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has hinted at a possible return to management.
Zidane, who left Real Madrid in his managerial career, said he was never too far away from a job.
The Frenchman first took charge of Real Madrid in January 2016 when he replaced Rafael Benitez at the helm.
Zidane left Real Madrid in May of 2018 after winning a La Liga title and three UEFA Champions League trophies, amongst other silverware.
He was reinstated as the Los Blancos’ manager in March of 2019 and signed a contract through the summer of 2022.
However, Zidane left the Spanish LaLiga champions prematurely at the end of the 2020–2021 campaign and made way for Carlo Ancelotti.
Speaking to RMC Sport, Zidane suggested that he would be back to management in the near future.
Do I miss being a coach? No, I’m never too far away from a job. But we will wait a little bit.
Soon, soon. But hey, I’m just enjoying it now, "Zidane said.
Zidane has been a free agent since departing his role as Real Madrid’s manager last year.
The 50-year-old was linked with the job at Paris Saint-Germain this summer, but the French Ligue 1 champions ended up appointing Christophe Galtier.
Zidane could be a candidate to replace Didier Deschamps as the head coach of the French national team if they flop at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
