THE BALL – After euphoria around Mbappé, Al-Khelaifi suffers setback (Paris Saint-Germain)

This Sunday, Telefoot announces that, after all, Zinedine Zidane will not be the coach of Paris Saint-Germain next season, as the former ace has a priority to command the French national team after the 2022 World Cup.

It had already been reported that the former Real Madrid coach had been postponing a decision on succession to Mauricio Pochettino beyond the Qatar World Cup, which is now confirmed and, worse, defrauds not only the plans of Chief Executive Nasser Al-Khelaifi but also the expectations of Kyllian Mbappé, whose renewal was announced yesterday, at the end of the game with Metz, with great pomp and circumstance, as if it were a question of winning a title.

According to the French press, Zinedine Zidane had been used by the Qatari millionaire as a trump card to convince Mbappé to remain in the Parc des Princes, but now, PSG will have to turn to other targets, with several alternatives having been pointed out to Mauricio Pochettino: the former -German coach Joachim Low, Spaniards Roberto Martínez (Belgian coach) and Julen Lopetegui (Seville), Italian Antonio Conte (Tottenham), former Parisian player Thiago Motta, a Brazilian naturalized Italian who has done interesting work at Spezia (Serie A) and also the experienced Frenchman Christophe Galtier.
