The name of Zinedine Zidane begins to sound strongly in some of the main benches of European football, especially in the Juventus of Turina team that after confirming the failure in the Champions League, would look for a replacement for Massimiliano Allegri and that is where the three-time winner of the highest European fair with Real Madrid is required.
In this situation, the ex-partner of Zidane in the French team, Thierry Henryanalyzed the future of “Zizou” and during his participation in the CBS Sports analyst panel, the former Arsenal player ruled out seeing the former captain of the French team at Juventus.
According to Henry, Zidane is just waiting for the opportunity to manage the France teama national squad in which a change is expected after the 2022 Qatar World Cup due to the imminent departure of Didier Deschamps.
“He’s not going to go there (Juventus), I think he’s waiting for the national team. So he’s not going there. I think he is waiting for only one thing and that is the France team. You won three Champions Leagues with Real Madrid. Why are you going to bother managing other clubs when you can have the national team? Henry told CBS Sports.
Although he said he did not know what Zidane’s future as a coach will be, Henry interpreted the recent refusal of ‘Zizou’ as an obvious sign with which he expresses his desire to lead his country’s team.
“I really don’t know what’s going to happen with the national team, but Zizou has been waiting. He has been linked with various clubs and never happened. I don’t think he wants to do it, I can see him waiting for the national team and it makes a lot of sense.”Henry added.
Henry sees a big problem inside Juventus
On the bad moment that the ‘Vecchia Signora’ is going through, Henry assured that the problem does not only go through the coach, as he recognized Allegri’s experience and talent, but said he was unaware of what happens inside the Italian squad.
“I said it when Pirlo left and when Sarri left. It’s not that they’re bad coaches. Now what’s going on behind closed doors we don’t know, but like I said, sometimes it takes time. We have seen it with Arteta, it took him two years to put a decent team on the pitch. At Juve they have to think about it carefully, because you never know what could happen. They thought that by bringing Allegri, things were going to change and it hasn’t happened,” said the former international for France.
