Recently, the 42-year-old Baptista said that Zidane is the right person to coach the Red Devils one day. "I think he will be an EPL manager one day," Baptista told Ladbrokes Fanzone, quoted by The Sun.

“He is an extraordinary coach, with great experience having won the Champions League, so I can see it happening. I can see him going to Red Devils,” he added. Interestingly, Zidane's name was mentioned as the main target of MU shareholder Sir Jim Ratcliffe to replace Erik ten Hag. Zidane has still unemployed since leaving Real Madrid in 2021. Recently Zidane emphasized his desire to return to the world of coaching.

Ratcliffe also hopes to be able to meet the Frenchman's heart and lead a revolution in the Man United squad.
