Video: Zinedine Zidane organises a France 98 reunion
Zizou has got the old band back together!
Real Madrid’s sporting director assembled his World Cup-winning team-mates from France 98 to play a fund-raising game for cash-strapped fourth division side Rodez.
Zidane’s wife is from Rodez and his in-laws called in a favour to help the club stave off bankruptcy.
Nine of the dream team, including Zidane, Laurent Blanc, Bixente Lizarazu and Fabien Barthez, took part in the match. The old stagers attracted a crowd of 8,000 – considerably more than Rodez’s average attendance of 800.
