Zinedine Zidane has revealed that he could never take over the managerial role at Paris Saint-Germain because he is a 'Marseillais'. The current Real Madrid manager was speaking to RMC and even admitted that 'one day', he'd be sacked by his current employer.

Under the stewardship of Zidane, Real Madrid brought their season back on track last year and ended it on a high by winning the 11 UEFA Champions League title – a record that's going to take a long long time for it to be eclipsed.
Yet Zidane knows his days are numbered. "Today I am here, I am in Madrid and I am enjoying myself," he told RMC.
"I never plan too far ahead. I do not know what tomorrow will bring, and that is no bad thing.”
And when asked where he could manage in the future, the former French superstar ruled out the French national team and the Parisian giants.
"The French team are well coached at present,” he added.
"Marseille? I do not want to say it is impossible. Marseille are something mythical. You know as well as I do that, when they are in good shape, it is something magnificent to behold.
"I am Marseillais (from Marseille) - I am not objective, but we all want to see OM back at the highest level.
"PSG? Impossible. I am in Madrid and I am from Marseille. It is complicated.”
Real Madrid are unbeaten under Zidane this season in La Liga
Under Zidane, Real Madrid are yet to lose a game this season in La Liga. They’ve won four games, drawn three and sit in second on the table between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.
Yet the mood at the Bernabeu isn’t the most pleasant one given the team’s inability to nail down results faster given the amount of quality they have on the roster.
Zidane has been linked with various jobs in the past but while he might find a decent posting, Madrid are running out of high-profile options to employ at the helm of the club.
