Real Madrid defender Varane: Zidane for France?

Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane has compared Zinedine Zidane with France coach Didier Deschamps.

Varane penned new terms with Real last week.

With France's squad this week, he stated: "If I find similarities between Didier Deschamps and Zinedine Zidane? Yes, they have certain similarities.

"They had great careers, they won a lot. They have this tranquility before approaching important events.

"If Zinedine Zidane can become one day (France) coach? Why not. He showed his qualities as a coach. He was a very great player, he is a great coach. So why not?"
