The French president Emmanuel Macron has already admitted that he had a role in convincing Kylian Mbappe to stay at PSG.

Now, he has been asked about the possibility of returning Zinedine Zidane to the French football - also to PSG.

"I haven't spoken to Zinedine Zidane, but I have immense admiration for him as the player, as the coach," Macron told RMC Sport.

"We really want to have, in the French championship, an athlete and coach of this talent who has been able to bring back three major cups that we covet a lot for our clubs. 

"I wish for the influence of the French championship and for France that he comes back and that he comes to train a big French club, it would be great."

It has been rumoured that one of the conditions in Mbappe's new deal with PSG was Zidane's appointment as the manager.

Too bad that they had not asked the former Real Madrid boss in advance as now it's claimed that Zidane is not convinced by the project in Paris.
