Close to the 1998 world champion, the artist does not see him one day sitting on the bench of Paris Saint-Germain.

It’s an open secret. Qatar dreams of convincing Zinédine Zidane to take the reins of Paris Saint-Germain. But despite a diligent courtship from the owners of the capital club in recent months, the 98 world champion still seems very far from sitting on the bench at the Parc des Princes. Beyond the possibility of succeeding Didier Deschamps at the head of the Blues after the World Cup, the visceral link of “Zizou” and his family with Marseille would represent a major obstacle to their coming to Paris.

A theory supported in The Team by the Marseille rapper Soprano, close to “ZZ”. “With my teams, we talked to him about it, with a little bit of pressure (laughs). Besides, he never said yes!“Explains the artist who does not imagine Zidane one day coaching PSG. “No way ! Oh no, I can’t… Even if he has never played for OM, Zidane also represents Marseille“, He continues before discussing his relationship with the idol of French football.

We have the same character, the same values.

Soprano on Zinedine Zidane

We know each other very well now… It’s crazy to be able to say that (laughs). We have neighborhood tiessays Soprano. His, the Castellane, is just below mine, the Aou plan. As a child, I already heard about the legend Zidane. But it wasn’t Zizou, it was Yazid. And the worst part is that there were also his two brothers. In the northern districts, everyone was talking about the Zidane family. We met years later. He came to my concerts and we quickly connected. We have the same character, the same values: hard work, discretion. Then we work as a family… There, he himself asked to testify in my documentary for Disney+ (Soprano, à la vie, à la mort). His passage touched me a lot. It’s not Zizou speaking, it’s Yazid.”
