I miss everyday life as a coach – Zidane

Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane admits he misses coaching.

It’s coming up to three years since Zidane left the Real job.

“Now I’m busy in another way,” he told Carre. “Sometimes I miss everyday life. Even if everyday life as a coach is ‘hot’.

“I took a break which has become a great break. I miss it from time to time.”

Zidane also spoke at length about his relationship with Marseille.

“For me, Marseille is the capital of football and also of sport. La Castellane? Many athletes have come from this neighbourhood. That’s why we I would like to see more Marseille players at OM, coming from the neighbourhoods.”

On the regret of never having worn the OM shirt, he said: “It happened like this, it wasn’t me, but Marseille and the club are always in my heart. From the age of 11 to 14 I was at the Vélodrome stadium. I went to the virage north and I would get under the board. In any case, no one will take it away from me.”
