All roads lead to Zinedine Zidane being the next PSG coach. The former Real Madrid coach is the one targeted to replace Mauricio Pochettino, who is unable to make a difficult dressing room and where the atmosphere is strange.
Pochettino himself is also not comfortable and has already tried to leave for Manchester United as a replacement for Ole-Gunner Solskjaer, but he did not receive authorization from Qatar.

Zinedine Zidane’s shadow has been hovering over Paris for some time, where it seems that he will finally land. According to the RMC journalist, Daniel Riolo, in the After Foot program, Zizou will be the next PSG coach from next season, whatever happens this year.

It would not matter even if the Parisian team wins the long-awaited Champions League. The decision seems taken and the only coach to win the top club competition three times in a row would sit on the bench in the Parc des Princes.
Another of the burning points is that Zidane, according to Riolo, would sign regardless of whether Kylian Mbappé is still in Paris or leaves in June. The signing of the Madrid legend will occur regardless of what happens to the French star.

On the other hand, it remains to be asked if all these rumors will become true for a reason that is publicly known: Zinedine Zidane is a fan of Olympique Marseille, at odds with Paris in the last decade.
Will the world champion score this controversy in his career? It is true that he has enough back for such an act of treason, but perhaps he plays this detail on paper.
