The French superstar told The Sun: “Steve McClaren has a very difficult job. One of the most difficult football jobs in the world. But David is a great player and a great guy.
“I believe he still has so much to give England and it would be a shame if he does not get another chance.
“We are now quite close. People get him wrong as he is not showbiz. In fact, he reminds me of Zidane.
“You tell ZZ he is good and he looks away and says ‘OK, yeah, yeah.’ He is embarrassed and David is like that.”
