‘The best possible successor’ – Zinedine Zidane backed to succeed Didier Deschamps as France boss by Toni Kroos

TONI KROOS claims Zinedine Zidane is the “best possible successor” to France boss Didier Deschamps.

And the German midfielder reckons his former Real Madrid manager has a “70-30 chance” of taking over the beaten World Cup finalists.

Didier Deschamps is undecided on his future after a decade in charge of France and just failing to land two successive World Cups

Deschamps admits he is uncertain if he’ll stay after narrowly failing to land the ultimate trophy twice in a row.

But Kroos believes French legend Zidane is eager to return to management, having regularly been linked with his national job.

Diario AS report the 32-year-old as saying: “I definitely think Zizou would not only be a good successor but the best possible successor

“The big question is: what does Didier Deschamps want? 

“I’d say there’s a 70/30 chance for Zizou to become France’s new coach.

“I think he really wants to get back onto the training field.”

Deschamps is thinking over his future after Argentina won Sunday’s final in Qatar 4-2 on penalties following a 3-3 draw.

The 54-year-old, who took the job in 2012, said immediately afterwards: “Even if we had won, I wouldn’t have been able to answer that question.


“Of course, I am very sad for all my players and staff but I will have a meeting with the president at the beginning of next year and then you will find out.”

French Football Federation chief Noel Le Graet told RMC Sport he hopes to meet Deschamps “as soon as possible” to clear up the situation.
