Zinedine Zidane agent speaks out amid Manchester United links to replace manager Jose Mourinho


Last week, after Manchester United's winless run extended to four games, it was reported in English publication, The Sun, that Zidane would succeed Mourinho at Old Trafford.

The former Real boss, who won three UEFA Champions League titles and LaLiga in two and a half seasons with the Spanish giants is currently without a club since resigning from Los Blancos.

However, there were doubts of his suitability for the Red Devils over his inability to speak English, and his agent Alain Migliaccio has now poured cold water on the constant rumours.

Migliaccio revealed that his time in the dugout at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu took its toll on the Frenchman.

"He was exhausted in terms of nerves, he has chosen to take a sabbatical year and he won't go back on that," Alain Migliaccio, Zidane's long-standing agent told Journal du Dimanche.

"I don't think he'll go to England, it's not his style," Migliaccio explained. "I've spoken about it with him and the truth is that it doesn't attract him."
