Zinedine Zidane, whose real name is Yazid Zidane, was born on June 23, 1972 in the northern districts of Marseille. Of Algerian origin, he is now considered one of the best football players of all time.

Zinedine Zidane entered the AS Cannes training center at the age of 15, a club where he started out as a professional. He then joined Bordeaux, Juventus of Turin, as well as Real Madrid.

In 2006, he played again for the France team but was expelled after his whim to the player Marco Materazzi. It is this gesture that will definitely put an end to his international career.

“I can’t tell you that I’m proud of this gesture, but at the same time, I don’t regret it. Because if I regretted it, it would mean that I agree with all those words that this person said to me. And that, I cannot accept.

A few years later, Zinedine Zidane became a coach for Real Madrid. His team won its third victory in the Champions League on May 26, 2018.

In 2020, he won the Spanish championship for the second time, before leaving the club in May 2021 with a total of 11 trophies.
