PREMIER - Report: Zidane rejects Newcastle offer as head coach
Newcastle's ownership shift has been extensively reported. The financial balance of those presently pulling the strings at St. James' Park is the essential point, given the nature of modern football.
The Magpies, who are presently in the Premier League relegation zone, have risen to the top of football's wealth rankings. They are the world's wealthiest football team.
The head coach position is one area where the club may want to make changes since Steve Bruce has done a bad job since taking over as head coach.
Zinedine Zidane is said to have declined an opportunity to become Newcastle United's next manager.
According to RMC Sport, the former Real Madrid manager has turned down the new Saudi owners because he is considering becoming the next France coach.
From 2016 to 2018, Zidane guided Real Madrid to three consecutive Champions League titles.
