Monaco Targeting Zidane As Coach

Zinedine Zidane reportedly tops AS Monaco’s wish-list to replace Claudio Ranieri at the end of the season.

The 1998 World Cup winner and three-time FIFA World Player of the Year is currently Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant coach at Real Madrid.

Zidane was tipped to replace the Italian when the coaches’ contract expires in 2016, but he could now be tempted to take the helm at Monaco.

As reported by L’Equipe, Monaco’s owner, Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, has decided to give Claudio Ranieri his marching orders after the club’s player publicly announced their unhappiness with the Italian coach’s methods.

The Russian is reportedly also disappointed with the return by Monaco’s three expensive signings, Falcao, James Rodriguez and Joao Moutinho.

Monaco currently sit in second position in Ligue 1, but with only 18 points left to play for they need a miracle to overturn their 13 point gap to log leaders, Paris Saint-Germain.

Should Zidane join Monaco it would his first position as head coach and he has promised he will continue his successful career when taking charge at the side-lines.

“I’ll be an ambitious Coach, as far as the system, and we’ll fight for titles,” the 41-year-old said.

“I was a bold player and I’ll be the same as a coach.”
