Zidane Salary & Net Worth

How much did Zinedine Zidane earn?

Zinedine Zidane has a net worth of...

135 Million Euros (151 Million Dollars)

If there's living proof that a man has never been motivated by money in any way, it has to be this guy. He was the world's costliest footballer for quite a while. Real Madrid spent a humongous sum on his transfer. But the man that orchestrated the move, the one that had a deep fondness for him, has reiterated his lack of interest for money on more than one occasion. Nonetheless, at the peak of his career, he was associated with Adidas. He still endorses them to this day. The Predator boot is synonymous with him. He also endorses Orange now. His stellar career and an even better managerial role have seen him net about 135 million Euros as of now.

Current Job

What does Zidane currently do?

Zinedine  Zidane current job, the French number 10 from Marseille, France
His love for Real Madrid and his fondness for Florentino Perez has had him take several different roles with the Spanish giants since Don Perez returned in 2009. He has been a sporting director and a youth team coach before shouldering the responsibility of the first team. (Image: imgur.com)

His first stint as the Blancos boss saw him make history and win the Champions League three times in a row. He walked away following the 'threepeat' but returned at Perez's behest. The Whites need a strong man like him at the helm and his tenure at Real has proven to be wildly succesful. (Image: imgur.com)

Iconic Moments

Marseille Roulette
Zinedine  Zidane most iconic moment, the French number 10 from Marseille, France
He can do it whilst dribbling at pace. He can do it whilst he is trudging down the pitch. He can do it in the centre of the park, in the penalty box. Heck, he can even do it whilst he's asleep. This is his signature move and a very important piece in his dribbling arsenal. It might be called the Marseille turn, but there's a better name for it. The Zizou Turn. You might have watched many players doing this on the pitch, but the one name that comes to your mind when someone does a 360 is his. (Image: imgur.com)

The Volley

The Volley. The Goal of the 21st century. The sweetest strike in the history of the Champions League. The strike that set Glasgow alight. The strike that broke Leverkusen's hearts and handed Madrid a European title. He is known for showing up at the big stage, and his versatility allowed him to use both his feet and head to score goals. Though we knew all of this beforehand, we cannot help but admire the beauty of this strike. He did it with his weak foot from a Roberto Carlos delivery into the box. Ask any Madridista what their favourite goals are, and this one will be on the list. (Image: imgur.com)

The Headbutt
Zinedine  Zidane most iconic moment, the French number 10 from Marseille, France
Horacio Elizondo heard something on his earpiece. He stopped play to find Materazzi lying on the ground writhing in pain. Nobody had seen it. Replays showed what had happened seconds earlier. As our man was walking back, Materazzi tailed him and appeared to say something. Zizou initially ignores him, but then as the Italian continues talking, the Frenchman stops, turns, and headbutts him. We were in complete shock as we watched the events unfold. He was red-carded, the French team lost its momentum, and its talisman and combined with a couple of poor substitutions by Domenech saw them lose out on the World Cup. So much has been said and written about this incident, but it continues to be talked to this day and will forever as long as football remains relevant. (Image: imgur.com)

The couple has four children together. This beautiful lady is of Spanish descent. Is that the reason for his love for Spain? Did you spot the Real Madrid badge on his hat? (Image: imgur.com)

Véronique must have had her hands full raising these four boys. Maybe that's why she's still in top shape. The whole gang is. (Image: imgur.com)


Zidane Car - What does he drive?

Audi RS3

He seldom makes bad decisions. It reflects in his choices. The RS3 is an ideal daily rider for a man like Zizou. (Image: imgur.com)

Audi

He uses it to get to the Bernabeu or Valdebebas. He doesn't exhibit any road rage, which is a good thing. We don't want him to be going around headbutting people. (Image: imgur.com)


House - Where does he live?
