Alaves midfielder and Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane’s son Enzo Zidane has said that playing tomorrow’s match against Real Madrid will be weird for him due to a variety of reasons.
The 22-year-old Frenchman will not only lineup against the team where he spent all his development years and came through the academy setup, but also face a Real Madrid team that is managed by his father Zinedine.
This will be the very first occasion when the young Enzo will compete against a team managed by Zinedine Zidane and he is looking forward to play in the game.
Speaking to the42, Enzo said, “It’s going to be weird. Real Madrid are the club my life has revolved around, the team I’ve played with since I was eight. I played for them in all their age groups. It’s going to be a very special match, something rare but that’s a good thing.”
Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid have had a poor start to the new season and Enzo will hope to get one over his old man.
Speaking about how the move to Alaves has been very important for him, Enzo said, “I’ve been lucky to have arrived at a club that’s welcomed me and helped me. It’s important for a player who changes his life. I’ve never lived this far from my family. My integration has been very good.”
Alaves have made a miserable start to the new season as they have neither won nor scored in their opening five matches of the new campaign.
