5. Zinedine Zidane
Nicknamed “Zizou”, Zinedine Zidane is arguably the best ever footballers. The Frenchman is up there with the likes of Pele, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the world’s best players. He played for Real Madrid for five years, being part of one of the best sides in the world called the ”Galacticos”. He also played for Juventus before joining Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Now at 43 years of age, the French man is the new Real Madrid manager and has started quite well in his first top managerial career. He won three Ballon d’OR awards during his time. It’s sad that this great player never played for any Premier League side.
