Zidane ‘annoyed with Florentino’ & ‘could leave Madrid’ at end of season

The rumours which suggest Zinedine Zidane could leave Real Madrid. Reports in France claim the coach is weighing up the possibility of stepping down for a second time at the end of the season.

The news comes from soccerlink.fr, who say that Zidane is annoyed with Madrid president Florentino Perez. He has not forgotten that Perez tried to bring Jose Mourinho back on various occasions.

According to the same report, Paul Pogba is another source of friction between the two men. Zidane is desperate to sign the Manchester United midfielder but Perez has never done what it takes to bring him in.

Meanwhile, the president of the French Football Federation, Noel Le Graet, views Zidane as the perfect successor to current coach Didier Deschamps after the World Cup.

Le Graet has hinted as much recently but he didn’t get a positive response from Zidane: “I am really happy here, my main worry is Real Madrid because there’s a lot of work here.”
