Former Real Madrid tactician Zinedine Zidane has hinted that he is willing to return in managerial career after his long-term break.

The 50-year old has been out of active football for 17 months but he said the wait is over and he will be back soon.

Speaking after revealing his own statue at the Grévin museum in Paris, the French man said the plans are set for him to take a new position soon.

Zidane was recently linked with PSG and the French national team manager job but he denied the rumours saying he was happy to wait for the right job at the right time and it seems like a moment may have come based on what he stated.

The Real Madrid legend is one of the modern successful managers having won three consecutive Champions League trophies with the Spanish giants from 2015-2018.

In May 2021, Zidane left his role as Los Blancos head coach for the second time after claiming that there was a disconnection between the club’s board and himself.

His next step may land in Italy following his heavy links with Juventus who were eliminated from Champions League in group stage on Tuesday.
