Algeria is communicating with Zidane to succeed Belmadi, and revealing his response

L’Equipe newspaper revealed that the Algerian Football Federation has contacted Zinedine Zidane in order to coach the Algerian national team in the coming period.

Djamel Belmadi resigned from coaching the “Desert Warriors” following Algeria’s exclusion from the African Cup of Nations groups for the second time in a row.

As part of the search for Belmadi’s successor, Walid Al-Sadi, president of the Algerian Federation, tried to attract former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane, and offered him the task of training the “Greens.”

Zidane expressed his great happiness at receiving an offer from his country of origin, but he rejected it.

Algeria is not the first team that Zidane has rejected. L’Equipe reports that Brazil and America tried to sign the Frenchman, but he refused.

The challenge that Zizou dreams of is to coach the French national team, and the dream remains possible to become a reality next summer if France’s participation in the Euro is negative and Didier Deschamps may leave.

As for the Algerian national team, the options now offered to train Riyad Mahrez’s teammates are Hervé Renard, Vladimir Petkovic, Vahid Halilhodzic, and Jorge Sampaoli.

It is noteworthy that Zidane only coached Real Madrid for two periods in his career, during which he achieved many achievements, most notably 3 consecutive Champions League titles.
