Domenech urges Zidane not to turn up nose if Man Utd call

Former France coach Raymond Domenech says Zinedine Zidane should take the job if Manchester United make an offer.

Although reports have indicated that Zidane has no interest in a move to the Premier League, Domenech is urging the former Real Madrid to have a rethink.

"What job is he made for when he's been a multiple Champions League with Real Madrid? What's left? [Manchester] City, United, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich? There's five or six clubs. After that, if he takes another club, they're a step down for him, for someone of his level," he told L'Equipe TV.

“There comes a point when you can't let that possibility slip. He's also got, with [Cristiano] Ronaldo, a direct relay, a translator from Spanish to English.

"He'll also get away from people who say he only achieved what he did because it was Real Madrid because he knew the players and he'll prove he's really a top manager. That's why I tell him: go for it. Or stay in your comfort, but I don't think that's his desire."
