France coach, Didier Deschamps, has said he expects Zinedine Zidane to take charge of the Les Bleus one day.
Zidane is now out of job after he announced his resignation as Real Madrid manager on Thursday, few days after winning his third consecutive Champions League title.
And Deschamps, who along with Zidane helped France win the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000, is convinced that his former team-mate will inherit his position someday.
“It's not me who holds the keys [to the national team], it's my president.
“I don't know what [Zidane] has decided. For now, I think he wants to enjoy his rest, his family and loved ones. He will be [France] coach at some point.
“When? I cannot say, but that seems logical to me. It will happen when it happens,” Deschamps told a news conference ahead of Friday's international friendly against Italy in Nice.
