Former Chelsea midfielder Emmanuel Petit has explained why Zinedine Zidane will not replace Graham Potter as Chelsea head coach.
Petit told RMC Sport: “I might be wrong, but I don’t believe it for one second, for various reasons.
“You spoke about it when you introduced the topic: Zizou doesn’t speak English, and while he might be learning it, knowing his style of management and how he works with players, he likes being close, and you need communication for that.
“I’ve had feedback from fans who have said that they don’t want Zinedine Zidane because he’s never declared his flame to the Premier League and he’s openly said that he much prefers a technical game, which I can completely understand when you look at the manager he is and player he was.
“The one argument I agree with is that he needs a job after being two years without one, and he might be Boehly’s choice, but Boehly, pardon me, he knows nothing about football.
“If he’s just flashing on the bling bling of the name, then there’s plenty of other managers out there who don’t have a job and know the Premier League better.”
