Zidane spent five seasons with Juventus before joining Real Madrid, where he became the most expensive player in the world with a £47.5 million transfer to the Bernabeu in 2001. Zidane’s role as Real Madrid boss is still under scrutiny going into the summer, with constant pressure at the Bernabeu – particularly given that rivals Atletico Madrid currently lead La Liga. This has sparked rumors that the World Cup winner could return to Turin in an effort to resurrect the Old Lady.
Italy Is In Zidane’s Heart
The French coach wishes to return to his former club.
Zinedine Zidane, the coach of Real Madrid, has confirmed that he would like to return to Juventus to coach the team one day. Juventus has fallen behind in comparison to previous seasons and has not done well in Serie A. The burden on Pirlo has risen dramatically, after losing to Porto in the round of 16. Juventus were also knocked out of the Champions League. Zidane has expressed interest in joining the club. He played for Juventus from 1996 to 2001. Zinedine is considered one of Pirlo’s contemporaries.
“Italy is still in my heart,” he told Sky Italia. “Juventus has really meant a lot to me. I’m not sure. For the time being, I am present. Let’s wait and see.”
The greatest player in football history with a fruitful career at Juventus is Zidane. He appeared in over 200 games for the club. Winning two Serie A titles, reaching the Champions League final twice, and scoring 31 goals and 38 assists. He is perhaps one of the most prolific managers, having won three Champions League titles in a row.
Zidane will take Real Madrid to England next Wednesday. They will face Liverpool at Anfield. In an attempt to secure a spot in the Champions League semi-finals.
