France will approach Zinedine Zidane to replace Didier Deschamps when the World Cup-winning coach departs, FFF president Noël Le Graët has revealed, according to Diario AS.

Deschamps has been in charge of Les Bleus since 2012, and last month signed a contract extension that will see him through to the 2022 World Cup.

The France boss is said to support the idea of Zidane as his successor as future coach of the France national team, with Le Graët also reportedly keen.

“The day Didier decides to leave or his contract is not renewed, if Zidane is available at that time, he will be the man for the job,” Le Graet told Canal+.

“There is Qatar,” Le Graët said. “Didier will be there and then, maybe afterward, I don’t know.”
