Zinédine Zidane is becoming a consultant to the French television station Canal Plus and will also be a commentator for the soccer matches they air.
“I don’t miss it (soccer) at all,” Zidane said in Thursday’s edition of L’Equipe. “When Real Madrid started the new season, I didn’t feel anything. I have just been jogging and playing tennis.”
The three-time FIFA World Player of the Year even finds the internet jokes and the chart-topping song “Coup de Boule” (“Head-Butt”) about his dismissal humorous.
“It amuses me more than anything,” Zidane said. “Although I what I did was not funny. Anyway, it’s better to laugh about it.”
Zidane also expressed an interest in playing for a club team in his hometown of Marseille.
