As you can see it in these pictures, Zinédine Zidane runs around the pitch while juggling eight times.

But of course, Zidane was not the only player on the pitch to have played for the Bordeaux club. At his side in midfield, the “ Little Prince of Lescure » Alain Giresse and Yoann Gourcuff helped him fuel an attack made up of Pedro Miguel Pauleta, Fernando Cavenaghi and Christophe Dugarry. “This environment is beautiful to see”smiled another former Bordeaux resident and world champion, Bixente Lizarazu.

Seven 1998 world champions on the pitch

Opposite, the Variétés did not differ with four 1998 world champions in its ranks: Laurent Blanc, Christian Karembeu, Robert Pirès and Fabien Barthez. The Variétés Club de France has also shared a video on its social networks in which we see Zinédine Zidane coming to greet her friends in the opposing locker room. He laughs with “Karembar”nickname he gives to Christian Karembeu, and “Lolo” said to him jokingly: “I’m going to put Souleymane Diawara on individual marking for you”. Above all, we can feel the still powerful aura of “ ZZ » when he enters the locker room, and the respect of his one-night opponents.

Although the result of the match was completely anecdotal, on a sporting level, well whetted the appetite by a double from Pauleta, and her celebration imitating the eagle of the Azores, the public of Chaban-Delmas appreciated this return of football in this historic lair, which hosted two football World Cups before today being the heyday of the rugby players of the Bordeaux-Bègles Union.

Alain Giresse, 71, emblematic captain of the Girondins, player who played the most matches and scored the most goals in this stadium, lasted for forty minutes before leaving to a standing ovation. Zinédine Zidane imitated him four minutes later after proving that the years have no influence on his unique technique, which Lescure had the chance to admire for four seasons. One month before the start of Euro 2024, “ Zizou » perhaps seeks to impress Didier Deschamps.
