- Zidane's agent has since dismissed the Frenchman's links to the Premier League club
Ex-Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane's agent, Alain Migliaccio, has provided an important update on the Frenchman's constant links to Manchester United's top job.
Zidane has widely been tipped in recent times to take over managerial reigns at Old Trafford from Manchester United tactician Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho's tenure at United came under sharp focus as the club recorded a string of poor results, including an embarrassing early Carabao Cup exit in the hands of lowly-ranked Derby County.
However, Migliaccio has refuted the links, asserting his client has no current plans to manage in the English Premier League.
Speaking during an exclusive interview with Journal du Dimanche, Migliaccio revealed to the publication England's football does not fit Zidane's style.
“I do not think that he will manage in England," he candidly stated.
“It is much less his style. I have discussed it with him, it does not really attract him. He has chosen to have a year out, he will not dive in again before that is over," he added.
On his part, Zidane hinted that he could be lured back into coaching before a 12-month sabbatical is over.
“Certainly I’ll be coaching again soon because it’s what I like doing and what I’ve done all my life," he divulged to the media in September.
The Frenchman enjoyed considerable success during his time with at the Santiago Bernabeu, including a hat-trick of European triumphs before eventually calling it quits.
