Zidane Jnr

11 posts in this topic

Instantly, his skill bewitches; the chest control, positional sense and drives from deep all suggest a talent to make mockery of his 15 years.

But one move above the rest gives him away: a lazy 360-degree dribble once known as the ‘Marseille turn’, where he contrives to drag his foot back, spin his body and finally beat his opponent in a single liquid motion.

At Valdebebas, Real Madrid’s gleaming training sanctuary out by the city’s airport, it is referred to simply as the roulette and it stands in Los Merengues folklore as the exclusive preserve of Zinedine Zidane.

The effortlessness of its execution by a teenager might be explained by the fact that young Enzo happens to be Zidane’s eldest son, a player not merely in the great one’s image but of his blood.

On this occasion, junior is branded as Fernández – maiden name of Spanish mother Veronique – as part of his father’s attempts to control the maelstrom of publicity about to engulf him.

To a generation of fans who grew up replaying that volley to win Real’s ninth European Cup in 2002, or those two headers for France in the 1998 World Cup final, there will only ever be one Zidane. Already, though, the profile of his progeny is elevated to pop-star levels.

Enzo’s exploits have gained him his own unofficial website, while a montage of his most outrageous pieces of invention to date, in a youth tournament against Barcelona three years ago, has attracted almost five million views on YouTube.

How could a 12 year-old display such consummate control? How dare the little tyro score from a direct free kick?

Touted across Spain as el heredero (the heir), Enzo was apparently born to emulate the game’s established nobility, having been named after Zinedine’s hero, the former Uruguay star Enzo Francescoli.

The problem is that, like many coveted properties from the Real hothouse, he faces multiple claims upon his loyalties. Specifically, he is burdened by the vexed issue of whether, as a boy of mixed ancestry, he winds up competing for France or Spain.

The hopes invested in him by both countries are such that the imminent resolution could yet have a profound bearing upon his future career.

Brian and Nigel Clough: Both played for England. Brian a legendary success as a manager. Nigel now manages Derby County.

Johan and Jordi Cruyff: Johan was simply one of the greatest players. Jordi was not, but played for Barcelona and Manchester United.

Cesare and Paolo Maldini: Cesare played in two World Cups and won one as a manager – Paolo was captain.

Frank and Frank Lampard: Both England players, though Senior was picked only twice.

Harry and Jamie Redknapp: Harry is the leading English manager at the moment, Jamie’s England career was cut short by injury.
