4. Zinedine Zidane
Whilst experience is often the main allure of bringing in a foreign coach, sometimes Premier League clubs will take a gamble on a big name. As Frenchman go, you’re hard pushed to find a bigger name than Zinedine Zidane.
After the success he achieved in his five years at the Bernebau, it’s no surprise Zizou is now being groomed for a future role as Head Coach of the Galacticos. The former Juventus midfielder is currently in his second year as boss of Real Madrid’s B team in the Spanish second division, for whom his son Enzo also plays.
