Zidane to coach Brazil national team

First, Brazil wants a foreign coach with plenty of experience in Europe, that’s what attracted them to Carlos Ancelotti  earlier. But the Italian has stated that he’s happy at Real Madrid.

Zidane is among the most successful coaches in Europe after winning three consecutive Champions League titles. However, he resigned from his job at Real Madrid last year due to differences with the club’s higher-ups.

The 50-year-old is also linked with taking over at PSG and the France national team, but the Brazil job seems more likely now given that they currently don’t have a coach.
