Zinédine Zidane caused heatstroke in Marseille. One more. By posting a photo on Instagram on Tuesday at the airport, suitcase in hand, followed by the message "let's go", OM supporters inevitably, even for a short moment, imagined the arrival of the idol on a bench abandoned by Marcelino and temporarily occupied by Jacques Abardonado. Missed.

The Iberian daily Mundo Deportivo mentioned this Thursday that Pablo Longoria tried to seduce the former Real Madrid coach after the departure of the Spanish technician from OM.

Another possibility, a return to the White House at the end of this season, knowing that Carlo Ancelotti is announced as Brazil coach in the next few years. month. In recent days, various media have announced that Xabi Alonso, who manages Bayer Leverkusen, would be in the running to take over from the Italian technician in Madrid? And Zidane in all this? The main person concerned, discreet about his intentions, waits patiently. But OM does not enter into his reflection. No more than Paris SG, who have dreamed of him for years and continue to be rejected.
