Cape Town - Zinedine Zidane is on the lookout for a new coaching job but England is unlikely to be his next destination.

The former Real Madrid treble Champions League winning manager left the club at the end of last season.

He had been touted to be the man to take over from under-fire Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, and was even pictured in the United Kingdom in recent weeks.

But Zidane's agent Alain Migliaccio says his client is not keen on the job and won't easily take a position in the Premier League.

He told JDD: "Manchester United? I don’t think he’ll go to England to manage. It’s less his style.

"I discussed it with him, it does not really interest him. He has chosen to have a year out, he will not dive in again before that is over."
