Rivaldo: I really enjoy watching Zinedine Zidane. His elegance of movement on the pitch and his skill are uncanny. Apart from being an impressive player, he is also very humble and very likeable as a person. A great man.
Kevin Keegan: You look at Zidane and think I’ve never seen a player quite like that. Diego Maradona was a great player. Johan Cruyff was a great player. They were different – but with similarities. What sets Zidane apart is the way he manipulates a football, buying himself space that isn’t there. Add his vision and it makes him very special.
Roberto Carlos: He is the best player I have seen. Playing alongside him was a crazy thing! Supporters arrived earlier at the Bernabeu just to see him warm-up.

No matter where he gets the ball or how it comes to him, Zidane can get out of trouble. His imagination and his technique are amazing.
