Zinedine Zidane has vowed to make a return to the dugout as rumours linking the Frenchman to Manchester United continue to mount.
The future of current Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho remains the subject of speculation, with many fans, pundits and bookmakers claiming he hasn't got long left at Old Trafford.
Zidane, meanwhile, intended to take a break after guiding Real Madrid to three consecutive Champions League trophies but, just four months into his sabbatical, is being linked with the United reins.
"I am sure that I will coach again before long," the Frenchman told TVE as he attended a match his son Elyaz was playing in. "This is what I like and what I have done all my life."
However, United continue to distance themselves from the Zidane reports, with a source quoted as saying: "Why would we discuss Zidane when there is no job available?"
