Zidane announcement: Henry not expecting Juventus job

Zinedine Zidane has announced that he wants to return to coaching soon. Massimiliano Allegri has been heavily criticized after Juventus was eliminated from the Champions League. However, former France international Thierry Henry doesn't think Zidane could envisage a return to Turin.

In the summer of 2021, Zinedine Zidane stepped down as Real Madrid manager for a second time. In his first term, the Frenchman had won the Champions League three times in a row with the Madrilenians. Now the former world-class playmaker has announced his comeback as a coach. "When will you see me on a bench again? Soon, soon. I'm not far from doing it again," Zizou said meaningfully at the launch of his wax figure at the Musee Grevin in Paris.

Juventus could then become an option for the 50-year-old. The Italians were knocked out of the Champions League on Tuesday evening and coach Massimiliano Allegri is increasingly coming under criticism because the old lady is also falling short of expectations in Serie A. Only eighth place is currently recorded there.

Although Allegri has the full backing of the club's chairman, Andrea Agnelli, the football business is too fast-moving for the Turin team not to be able to part with their boss should there be another slide in the league. But whether Zidane is available for the post at his ex-club, where he worked from 1996 to 2001, is highly questionable - in fact, Zizou seems to be lurking for the France national team."I will [coach], I hope, be one day. My deep longing is there. The French team is the most beautiful thing there is," he told L'Equipe in June.

And his former teammate Thierry Henry doesn't believe that Zizou could end up in Turin either. "He's been linked with a lot of clubs but it never happened. I don't think Zizou wants to do that [at Juve]," said the former star striker, adding: "I think Zidane is waiting for the France national team - it would make perfect sense."
