Zinedine Zidane has said he did not leave his Real Madrid job to become coach of France national team.
The 45-year-old claims he “stopped to make a parenthesis”.
Zidane quit the LaLiga club just five days, after winning a third Champions League title.
He has been linked with taking over his country after the 2018 World Cup, claims he has now denied.
“The most important thing is to support the team of France,” Zidane told TF1.
“I didn’t stop to want to take the team of France. I stopped to make a parenthesis.
“I’m behind the French team. We want it to bring back a second title.”
