Roberto Carlos: 'United would be lucky to have Zidane'
- The Frenchman's former teammate has shared his views on Mourinho's possible dismissal
- The Brazilian has admitted it's very difficult for a manager to leave the club during the midseason
- Zizou is allegedly not interested in becoming United's new boss as English style of football doesn't attract him in any way
Roberto Carlos, Real Madrid's former left-back and Zinedine Zidane's teammate from 2001 to 2006 has commented on the rumours of Zizou becoming the replacement for the Special One. From the Brazilian's point of view, the Frenchman is a great manager and any team would definitely be very lucky to have the three-time Champions League winner as a coach:
"It is very difficult for a coach to leave the team at this moment [Mourinho]. But in any case, Zinedine Zidane is a great coach and any team he will go to will be very lucky."
Earlier the Frenchman has been rumoured to be reluctant to sign a contract with the Red Devils. He seems to regard English football as unattractive while also considering the potential job at United as risky. His lack of English language knowledge is also meant to be one of the obstacles that might prevent him from moving to Old Trafford.
Last June Zizou became the first ever manager to win three consecutive Champions League titles. During his time at Real Madrid from 2016 to 2018, the Frenchman won 105 games out of 149 with only 16 losses suffered.
