One of the world’s most successful footballers, Zinedine Zidane, was recently appointed the coach of Real Madrid after a successful career with the club which spanned between 2001-2006.
The French attacking midfielder was successful as a footballer, winning several laurels but it remains the biggest challenge whether he can translate that same consistency on the pitch to his new role as the manager at the Santiago Bernabeu club.
He was recently unveiled as the face of Mango, a leading men’s wear manufacturer, where he replaced Dutch male model, Marck Vanderloo, and follows the steps of Spanish footballer, Gerard Pique, in fronting the brand’s collections.
The 43-year-old French legend, who is married to Véronique Zidane, with whom they share four sons, Enzo, Elyaz, Lucas, and Theo Zidane, are all members the Real Madrid Academy and it is speculated that by 2025 the Real Madrid line-up could consist of four Zidane names.
The player, who was born to Algerian parents, has endorsement for various companies, including Christian Dior, Adidas, Audi, Orange SA, France Telecom, Lego, Volvic, among many others, where he has made a fortune both on and off the pitch.
