Club career

Early career, Cannes and Bordeaux (1988–1996)

Zidane got his start in football at a young age when he joined the
junior team of US Saint-Henri, his local club in the La Castellane
district of HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marseille» \o
«Marseille» Marseille . At the age of 14, Zidane left Septemes and
participated in the first year junior selection for the league
championship, where Jean Varraud, HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AS_Cannes» \o «AS Cannes» AS Cannes ‘
recruiter, took notice of him. Zidane went to HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannes» \o «Cannes» Cannes for what was
intended to be a six-week stay, but remained at the club for four years
to play with professionals.Showing the determination of an athlete who
wanted to exceed expectations, Zidane played his first game in First
Division at the age of 17, and it was from then that football went from
an ambition to a passion. The Cannes midfielder scored his first goal on
February 8th, 1991 (he received a Clio as a promise from the Cannes
President, who promised him a car when he scored his first goal as a
professional), and his first season with the club was marked by a
qualification for the UEFA Cup. Zidane’s second season with Cannes was
not as promising, but on the non-professional front he met his future
wife Veronique, a Spanish dancer. Afterwards, Zidane spent four years
with HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FC_Girondins_de_Bordeaux»
\o «FC Girondins de Bordeaux» FC Girondins de Bordeaux , leading them
to victory in the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UEFA_Intertoto_Cup_1995» \o «UEFA

Bixente Lizarazu and HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christophe_Dugarry» \o «Christophe
Dugarry» Christophe Dugarry , with whom he played a set of midfield
combinations that would become the trademark of both Bordeaux and the
1998 French national team. In 1996, he was transferred to HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italy» \o «Italy» Italy ‘s HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juventus_F.C.» \o «Juventus F.C.»

In 2001, Zidane was transferred to Real Madrid on a four-year contract.
The transfer fee was ?66m, around F45.6m, the highest in football
history. His fellow HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galactico»

HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006» \o «2006» 2006 , Zidane
played his last home game for Real Madrid at the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santiago_Bernab%C3%A9u_stadium» \o
«Santiago Bernabeu stadium» Santiago Bernabeu stadium . His team-mates
wore special jerseys that had ZIDANE 2001–2006 written on the bottom of

cheering him throughout the game. The opposing team was HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Villarreal_CF» \o «Villarreal CF»
Villarreal CF , and the game ended in a 3-3 draw, where he scored the
second goal for Real Madrid. After the game, Zidane swapped jerseys with
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juan_Rom%C3%A1n_Riquelme» \o
«Juan Roman Riquelme» Juan Roman Riquelme , the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Villarreal_CF» \o «Villarreal CF»
Villarreal CF and HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argentina_national_football_team» \o
«Argentina national football team» Argentinean midfielder. Zidane was
given an ovation by spectators chanting «merci», which left him in
tears.

International career

Zidane holds HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiple_citizenship» \o «Multiple
citizenship» dual citizenship of both France and Algeria, and
therefore could have played for HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algeria_national_football_team» \o
«Algeria national football team» Algeria . However, coach HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdelhamid_Kermali» \o «Abdelhamid
Kermali» Abdelhamid Kermali denied him a position on the team, arguing
that the young midfielder was not fast enough.

He earned his first cap with the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/France_national_football_team» \o «France
national football team» French national football team on HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_17» \o «August 17» 17 August
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1994» \o «1994» 1994 , coming
on as a substitute in the 63rd minute of a friendly match against the
HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czech_Republic_national_football_team» \o
«Czech Republic national football team» Czech Republic . France was
behind 0-2 when Zidane came on and scored two goals for a 2-2 draw.

At that time, manager HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aim%C3%A9_Jacquet» \o «Aime Jacquet» Aime
Jacquet had planned to field the team around HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchester_United_F.C.» \o «Manchester
United F.C.» Manchester United star HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89ric_Cantona» \o «Eric Cantona» Eric
Cantona , but after Cantona earned a year long suspension in January of
1995 (he launched a ‘kung-fu’ style kick against an allegedly abusive
Crystal Palace fan, Matthew Simmons), Jacquet rearranged the team and
positioned Zidane as playmaker. Despite criticism from fans and pundits
regarding the choice of players, France made it to the semi-finals of
the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1996_UEFA_European_Football_Championship»
\o «1996 UEFA European Football Championship» Euro 1996 , where the
Czechs beat France on 6-5 on penalties (0-0 after extra time).

In 1995 Zinedine Zidane may have become another high profile signing for
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackburn_Rovers» \o
«Blackburn Rovers» Blackburn Rovers during the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Walker» \o «Jack Walker» Jack Walker

«Christophe Dugarry» Christophe Dugarry who were playing in France for
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FC_Girondins_de_Bordeaux» \o
«FC Girondins de Bordeaux» FC Girondins de Bordeaux , however Walker
reportedly said to Dalglish: «Why do you want to sign Zidane when we
have HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Sherwood» \o «Tim
