Oliver Kahn has said that Zinedine Zidane would be a perfect fit to succeed Jupp Heynckes as coach.
Kahn, the former Germany and Bayern captain, believes that Zidane would be the ideal replacement for Heynckes should he decide to leave Madrid in the summer.
“Zinedine Zidane is undoubtedly worth considering. I think he’s sensational,” Kahn said during the broadcast of Madrid’s 3-0 victory over Juventus in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals. “He has won everything with Real Madrid and can win his third Champions League title. He’s a coach who fits perfectly Bayern Munich’s requirement profile.”
“He is French and can speak Spanish, so he could learn German,” Kahn said. “The question is more what can he do extremely well? He can manage a star-studded squad, he was an absolute world star himself, and while many former top players don’t go on to become great coaches, he has.”
Bayern have said they want to announce their new coach by the end of the month, and speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Frankfurt sporting executive Fredi Bobic said there has been no contact with Munich over Kovac’s potential departure.
