Zidane & poor kids
Zidane lately said that he is done with soccer and he is going to do his best to help poor kids around the world.
Zinedine Zidane was in Cairo on Thursday to launch a home for handicapped street children as part of a worldwide programme aimed at helping the most disadvantaged youngsters.
Egypt's National Council for Childhood and Motherhood signed a protocol with French company Danone, for which Zidane is world ambassador, to provide handicapped and homeless children with shelter, health care and education.
"It gives me immense pleasure to inaugurate a home for the handicapped street children of Egypt," Zidane told journalists.
"Undoubtedly I will be more gratified when all the children of the world enjoy care, safety and protection."
These kind of jobs that Zezo is looking for sonce he stopped playing soccer.
GoOd LuCk ZeZo :)

one day me and my friends went to the hookabar back home in Saudi Arabia to watch this soccer game between real Madrid and Barcelona. three of us were going for Barcelona and just me and the other friend were going for real madrid. Barcelona was winning the game so far. it was 2-0 and 80min. only 10 min left. my friend said I'm sure Zidane will do something but they were laughing at us. i believed in zidane and i was sure he will score or do something. the goal keeper passed the ball to zidane and he started running with the ball using his skills and moves that no one can do but him. he shoot and scored a great goal. and when it was 90 min he run with the ball and crossed it and then Raul scored the second goal. we were so happy and the other boys were just so mad and couldn't say anything.
Zidane headbutt
Pity if you will poor old Zinedine Zidane: sent off during the World Cup final for a serious infraction of FIFA's "no headbutting Italians" rule and now reduced to the status of French national hero with enough cash in the bank to enjoy a lifetime of truffles, stuffed songbirds and fine vintage champagne. Indeed, while the rest of the world was struggling to contain its outrage at Zidane's unsportsmanlike use of the Glasgow handshake, Jacques Chirac counterattacked with: "I would like to express all the respect that I have for a man who represents at the same time all the most beautiful values of sport, the greatest human qualities one can imagine, and who has honoured French sport and, simply, France."

Reaction to Zidane's sending off
France coach Raymond Domenech said the referee should have given Zinedine Zidane more protection in the World Cup final defeat against Italy in Berlin. Zidane was sent off in extra-time for a headbutt on Marco Materazzi before France went on to lose on penalties. "Materrazzi is the man of the match, not Andrea Pirlo," said Domenech. "When one has to put up with what Zidane had to and the referee doesn't do anything, one understands. You can't excuse it, but you can understand it." The France coach added that Zidane regretted what had happened but refused to say if he had apologised.

On 7 May 2006, Zidane played his last home game for Real Madrid at the famous Santiago Bernabéu stadium. His team-mates wore special jerseys that had ZIDANE 2001–2006 written on the bottom of the club logo. The Real Madrid fans gave him a warm reception and kept cheering him throughout the game. The opponent team was Villarreal CF and the game ended in a 3-3 draw. He scored the second goal for Real Madrid. After the game, Zidane swapped jerseys with Juan Roman Riquelme, the Villarreal CF and Argentinian midfielder. Zidane was given a massive ovation by spectators, which left him in tears.

great goal for zidane:
Zinedine Zidane scored a goal of sheer brilliance as Real Madrid ended their centenary season by winning their ninth European Cup. this goal was so perfect and i remamber me and my friends were going for the real and we were jumping and yelling when he scored it. it was just a crazy game and we were so happy that the real team won this game.
The Spanish giants had wrestled the early initiative when Raul scored after nine minutes, but Bayer Leverkusen quickly bounced back with Lucio's equaliser. However, the momentum swung decisively with Zidane's goal on the stroke of half time. And Real dominated an unspectacular second half in which Leverkusen failed to create any meaningful chances until the very end. In the seventh minute of injury time Madrid's substitute goalkeeper Iker Casillas made three spectactular saves to prevent Leverkusen from taking the match into extra time.

woman magnetism and personal style
Zidane is Christian Dior's first male model. That is about the extent of his women magnetism. He isn't a heartthrob like David Beckham, or charming like Luis Figo. He is Zinedine Zidane, one of the world's most boring players. Does he care? Of course not, he has a lovely wife and two kids, and all the love he ever needs (though we can imagine the propositions uninhibited French women have thrown his way).

Zidane's off-field blandness extends to his wardrobe, which is just short of dull and unimaginative. Luckily his wife has impeccable taste. ================================================================================
