Zinedine Zidane did wonders any time he touched the ball back in his days as the Frenchman won everything both with the country and the club.

Kylian Mbappe named Zidane as his first footballing role-model recently.

And now, Real Madrid manager responded:

“Now he’s the example,” Zidane said about Mbappe, quoting Marca.

“We are examples for those who play football.

“I’ve been an example because some people liked the way I played.”

The press conference was a great opportunity to talk about Alvaro Odriozola’s potential department.

“He has an opportunity to leave, so let’s wait and see,” Zidane added.

“Anything can happen. I’m not going to take one player away and put another in, I’ll tell you that.”We’ll see what happens.”

It’s all smiles for Zidane recently, as his Madrid side is doing very well in all competitions.
