Zinedine Zidane

Postby charger256 » Thu Jul 12, 2007 2:05 pm

Zinedine Zidane told German newspaper ‘Bild’ that he would have gladly played for the Bavarian heavyweights, Bayern Munich.

“Unfortunately I never recieved an offer, but I always had Bayern in my eyes and I have admired them”, declared the French football legend, Zidane.

For Zidane, Bayern Munich is an Institution.

‘Zizou’ thinks that Bayern Munich, together with Real Madrid, AC Milan and Manchester United, are one of the four best clubs in the world.

Too bad he retired :)

There will never be any player that good ever again. Forget about Pele, Maradona or Ronaldinho... Zidane is for me the best player that ever lived.

Ribery is fantastic but not as fantastic as Zidane.

Much as I like Zidane, I still prefer Effenberg to him. It's my opinion, which is of course biased, but it's what I believe. Effenberg was a more complete player than Zidane in my opinion. Zidane wasn't particularly good defensively, whereas Effenberg could defend, attack, lead (IMO a better leader than Zidane) and possessed great vision.

Ziadne was most better striker, dribbler, passer, visioner and had a better flair . While Effenberg was very good at those things (except for dribbling and flair) Zidane was better.

I agree with Mutu on Effenberg, he really was a great midfielder a true playmaker till the end, although the only difference is that Zidane had more fame than Effenberg so that what makes Effenberg in Zidane's shadow. Paddy before you can speak about Zidane being better than Zidane i suggest that you should watch his career videos.....your message was a lot over the limit. Pele was the best striker in football history and Maradona the best overall player 3x much better than Ronaldinho for sure or Zidane for that matter. Its true its your opinion but you should really watch some career clips of Diego, it was a real shame that he had to stop playing early (atleast that what i've heard of)

In terms of flair and dribbling no one can compare to Ronaldinho imo.... and Pele and Maradona cannot compare to todays players because the game back then wasnt so tough and full of competition like it is today. What Maradona did against England is almost impossible.
For me Effenberg, while a great player, isn´t nowhere near Zidane. Zidane was way superior in dribbling, pace, scoring, deciding big matches, vision (he always knew what to do- pass, dribble or shoot), he could decide the game with his dribbling and then scoring, while Effenberg couldn´t dribble.
And awards Zidane won speak for themself.

Here's a shocker......I agree with Paddy. Heck, this is his second post that I have agreed with. The other being about Beckham and his looks (that post is in the Spanish thread).

Messi did a similar, probably better one against Getafe last season.

dribbling - I agree
pace - I agree
scoring - out of the question... Zidane played in a more offensive position, of course he was supposed to score more
deciding big matches - just a wild guess? how many important matches did Effenberg play in? One - the CL final, which he decided by scoring 2 penalties. Zidane did well in a WC final against Brazil and in the CL final against Leverkusen, but what did he do in his last important match?
vision - personally, I'd take Effenberg's vision any day over Zidane's :)
he could decide the game with his dribbling and then scoring - Effenberg could decide the game with his tackling, winning the ball and assisting his team mate
while Effenberg couldn´t dribble - yeah, and Zidane couldn't tackle...
