Indications have shown that former Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane has begun to learn the English language as he becomes one of the favourites to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the Manchester United hot seat.
This is following United’s terrible run of form that has seen the Red Devils lose six of their last 12 games.
Petit, who played alongside Zidane in the French national team, revealed that Zizou is learning English to help with his ‘career’ but insists it is not due to the Manchester United links.
The former Arsenal midfielder ‘doesn’t believe’ Zidane will join Manchester United, adding that the 49-year-old has ‘no connection’ with the Premier League and that it would be unlikely he would make the move.
“Communication is very important, so if you do not speak the language when you arrive at a club like Manchester United, that could be a big problem.
“I’ve been told that he has been learning English recently, so I think he knows it’s important for his career, but Zinedine being linked with Manchester United – I don’t believe it, to be honest.
“Of course, he’s a big name but he never played in the Premier League and has very little connection with it, so as I said, I don’t believe it,” Petit told bookmakers.co.uk.
