Erected in priority by the Qatari owners, Zinedine Zidane seems to have once again to escape from PSG. A blow for the champions of France.
Failed again! The efforts of the leaders of the PSG will not have been enough. The owners of the capital club have not spared their efforts for six months. But if the former Madrid player did not remain insensitive to the interest of the Red and Blue, he finally stuck to his first idea: despite the forcing of the champions of France, the native of Marseille has indeed decided to favor the team of France, counting on a departure of Didier Deschamps at the end of the World Cup in Qatar.

A snub for Parisian leaders
Disappointment is obviously in order in the Parisian camp. The refusal of the former playmaker sounds like a terrible snub for the leaders of PSG, who did not manage to convince the 98 world champion. And this despite a five-star workforce, the extension of Kylian Mbappe and a salary proposal that would have made him the highest paid coach in the world.
Once again, PSG therefore failed to convince one of the coaching leaders. This was already the case in the past with José Mourinho, Diego Simeone or Pep Guardiola, moreover still in the sights of Doha, but also Zinedine Zidane, who is on his third refusal… And once again, the club of the capital will therefore have to refer to a second-rate coach, as was the case with Laurent Blanc, Thomas Tuchel or Mauricio Pochettino.
Campos not unhappy…
Zinedine Zidane’s refusal is undoubtedly not to displease Luis Campos. Since his arrival at PSG, the sports adviser of the capital club has indeed been active in favor of Christophe Galtier, with whom he has already teamed up for two seasons at Losc. The Portuguese leader therefore seems to be on the way to winning his case since according to many experts on the matter, PSG has agreed with OGC Nice about the former Stéphanois, for whom the Parisians have agreed to pay some 10 million euros to buy out his two-year contract.
