I'm going to speak about my favorite hero who is an international football player. He was born on June 23th 1972 in Marseille in France. He had four brothers and sisters. His parents are Malika Zidane and Smail Zidane. Zinedine Zidane spent his childhood in Marseille. He lived in an underprivileged neighbourhood.
He is married with Veronique Fernandez and together they have four children.
Zinedine Zidane played football in the street and then in local clubs and at 14-year-old, Zidane was discovered by AS Cannes in 1987. Noted for his talent, Zidane was detected by different clubs.
In 1992 Zidane played in the Girondins de Bordeaux. It was there he was called "Zizou". He was classified three times the best best players of the years in 1998, 2000 and 2003 by the FIFA and he received the golden ball in 1998. During his career from 1988 to 2006.he played as a attacking midfielder .
He won many awards as the best European player during the last five years according to the FIFA, he was mentioned among the 125 bests players in 2004. He was the favorite French player in 2006.
