Would he take over the Real job? "Yes I would go for that," he said, while adding "there is already a coach (Carlo Ancelotti) in place who is doing a great job."

"Do I feel ready if I was offered the first team? You are never ready, but if it happened like that I would have to say yes."

The 42-year-old added France, with whom he won the World Cup in 1998, to his wish list in the programme late Sunday.

"I was a player in this team and it would be good, one day (to be coach), but for the moment there is a coach (Didier Deschamps) who is doing a great job. But yes I have this target, this ambition," Zidane said.

The former world player of the year retired from club and international football in 2006. Zidane said he has time to wait until taking on a bigger post. "I am doing fine at Madrid."
