Zinedine Zidane Has His Eyes On A Managerial Job, It's Not Manchester United

Zinedine Zidane has no intention of taking the Manchester United job despite the club putting the feelers out following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Frenchman is one of the leading candidates for the vacancy after leaving his post as Real Madrid manager for the second time at the end of last season.

But according to Guillem Balague, reporting for BBC Sport, Zidane, who won three Champions League trophies on the trot, is not interested in taking the reins at Old Trafford anytime soon despite being out of work.

Instead, he would prefer to manage the French national team or take over at Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino has also been linked with the United job and Zidane would consider replacing the Argentine if he was to move on.

Although the hierarchy at PSG want him to stay put and he signed a contract extension in July, the general consensus from the media is that the 49-year-old is keen on returning to English football with United.

After a break from management following his Spurs dismissal, Pochettino was appointed as PSG manager earlier this year when Thomas Tuchel was sacked.

But as per the Daily Mail, Pochettino is unhappy at the club and frustrated at having to manage big egos like Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi.

His family are still staying in London while he is based in a hotel in Paris.

Others names mentioned include Brendan Rodgers, Ajax boss Erik ten Hag, Sporting CP manager Ruben Amorim, Julen Lopetegui and Ralf Rangnick.

For the time-being, Michael Carrick has agreed to manage United on a caretaker basis after being kept on.

United are seeking an interim, manager, however and former captain Steve Bruce is believed to be "very keen" on the position.

It's said Bruce, who only recently left Newcastle, thinks he could destabilise the dressing room at United.
