Zidane wants to be a coach

I absolutely love Zinedine Zidane because he's really, really fucking cool.  Headbutting someone in the world cup final?  Yes please.  And now..... manager?!  It's gonna happen!

Zidane told a French radio station (upon being asked about being a manager):
"Sooner or later I will get closer to the pitch".

"I will want to transmit my experience. I won’t invent something new, but that is what I know best and what I can do best."
The former France star is currently Real Madrid's Sporting Director which I think means he gets paid to go and watch games and just be Zinedine Zidane.  I dunno, maybe he does work too but unless he wears a shirt and tie and talks on a phone a lot about that conference he has to go to, how would we never know he's important?  I guess we'll just have to hope that at some point soon we see someone like this on a train so that we can find out.  Until then I can only dream.
