World 2018 43 Zinedine Zidane - Career images 31340823 Living legend Living+legend World

Considered by many as one the greatest footballers of all-time, Zinedine Zidane played as an attacking midfielder, who led the French national team to the 1998 World Cup and 2000 European Championship titles.

 

In addition to his national team success, the former three-time FIFA World Player of Year won the La Liga and the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid, two Serie A league championships with Juventus and an Intercontinental Cup and a UEFA Super Cup each with both aforementioned clubs. After retiring from professional football after the 2006 World Cup, Zidane was appointed as a special adviser to Real Madrid's first team and was later named Madrid's new sporting director in July 2011.

 

Here are some of the best images from Zidane's illustrious career both on and off the field:

After a disappointing World Cup run in 2002, France again reached the World Cup final in 2006. Zidane would spearhead the charge, proving many critics wrong who discounted the French legend and old side before the tournament. The midfield scored a sublime penalty to open the scoring, but Italy equalised and took the match to a penalty shootout, before which Zidane was sent off in his final ever match, for headbutting Italy defender Marco Materazzi in the chest. The Italians went on to win the shootout as Zidane's career ended in defeat and disgrace.

A statue depicting Zidane's (L)infamou headbutt on Italian defender Marco Materazzi during the 2006 World Cup final, by Algerian born artist Adel Abdessemed, is seen in front of the Centre Pompidou modern art museum in Paris, France. Despite the unforunate incident, Zidane is still regarded in many circles as one of the greatest players of all-time.
