“Zidane? Why not?,” the Frenchman indicated in the pre-match press conference. “He has shown his qualities as a coach and has been a great player.

“He is a great coach, so why not?”

In addition, Varane compared Zidane with current national team boss Didier Deschamps.

“They have a lot of experience, they both have the peace of mind when they need to tackle important games.”
