French football legend Zinedine Zidane showed off his skills and magical touches with the ball at the age of 51, during his participation in a friendly match with Bordeaux Legends against Variety in France yesterday, Tuesday, in a shot that was widely spread and admired by followers on social media platforms.

Yesterday, Tuesday, the official account of the Bordeaux club on the “X” platform published a video clip of the moment in which Zidane spread his magic on the field, commenting on it, “Zinedine Zidane is the great.”

“Zizou” showed great skill in receiving the ball in his own way, and manipulating it as he ran on the field without it falling to the ground, receiving greetings and applause from the fans present in the stands.

The two French clubs celebrated Zidane’s special appearance in the match through their accounts, and a large number of sports accounts and activists also interacted with the snapshot, which was seen by more than half a million followers on Bordeaux’s account only, in addition to other accounts that re-shared it.

The French newspaper “L’Equipe” published, through its account on the “X” platform, a shot of the French coach from another angle, with the interaction of commentators on it, and wrote about the former Juventus and Real Madrid star, “Zidane is at the top of his level.”

Sports activist Abdullah Al-Balushi commented on the snapshot, “The touch is different, the presence is different, the charisma is different, even the nostalgia for his memories is different from the rest of the players, and there is a lot of longing, O Emperor,” while another said, “Zizou is still having fun.”

A blogger wrote, “Zidane is a strange, strange type that you will never see like him in your lifetime. Skillful but not pretentious, elegant but simple, tall but flexible, something you see and say, Glory be to God.”

He last reposted a video of Zidane’s skill on his BX account, commenting on it: “The legend Zidane, enjoyment from today’s match. How can you convince yourself that he is a player who has retired for 18 years, Zizou, the gold that never rusts.”
