INFO:

Spoiler: show
Zinedine Zidane was the greatest footballer in the world during the early 2000s and is one of football's all-time greats. He earned his first cap with France as a substitute in a friendly against the Czech Republic on 17 August 1994, which ended in a 2-2 draw after Zidane scored twice to help France erase a 2-0 deficit. After Éric Cantona was handed a year-long suspension in January 1995 for assaulting a fan, Zidane took over the playmaker position. France were eliminated in the UEFA Euro 1996 semifinals in a penalty shootout by the Czech Republic after the match ended 0-0 in extra time. He moved to Juventus and helped them win two Sere A titles and 2 consecutive UEFA Champion league finals but lost both.

Zidane won the 1998 FIFA World Cup with France, scoring twice in the final against defending champions Brazil and won the FIFA World player of the year in that year. France then went on to win UEFA Euro 2000, becoming the first team to hold both the World Cup and the European Championship since West Germany in 1974. in 2001 he then signed for Real Madrid "Galacticos side". for a then world record fee of €78 million and signed a four-year contract. He scored the match-winning goal, a thunderous volley hit with his weaker foot, in Madrid's 2-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen in the 2002 UEFA Champions League Final completing this personal quadruple. The next season, Zidane helped Real Madrid to win the Spanish league title and was named the FIFA World Player of the Year for the third time. In fact He was voted in top five FIFA World Player of The Year for 9 times during 10 years between 1997 - 2006.

Zidane was perfect in his role setting organization of the game, superb ball control, precision passing combined with great physical strength. He has already considered by many in top ten the greatest footballers of all-time. In 2004, Zidane was finished as the best European footballer in the last 50 years by UEFA Jubilee Poll.

By the way, have u ever thought that one of the greatest (or maybe the greatest of all) football player actually came from Africa... I just want to bring this out because people always insult African teams and players to be worse than European for example.

I wasn't insulting African teams :? Zizou is one of my all time favourite players! I'm not disrespecting his ancestory in the slightest. I'm simply pointing out that in football terms, his nationality is French. If we did this for all the players on the database then Simone Perotta would have 'Nationality: Italian/English' for example, there's just no need for it is all I am saying.

Agree with U Jez, I have a friend who´s name´s Liliett Danenberg, both parents are Germans and she considered herself as Cuban as any other, as she was born in Havana, like Zidane was born in Marseille. She doesn´t deny her heritage, but when she introduces herself she doesn´t go: "Hi, I´m Liilett, I´m Cuban-German", she goes with a simple "I'm Cuban", and she still has the German nationality as well...that works for offical paperwork as well. ;)

I don't want to sound as an overater, but I just can't dribble with with with his actual TS...
I know he was never that fast, but TS: 78?
80 would feel much better...
At the same rate with Nesta, Cassano, Lucio, Cambiaso etc...

I do think TS and ACC need a touch. Also defence ought to be reduced. The current value with his BB+response+weight make him too good in the stand up tackle and a pretty effective CMF. IMO SPS should be in high 80s, we cannot even think of comparing his range to that of current Xavi.

IMO:

Def @ 50-52
TS @ 79
ACC @ 82
SPS @ 88-89



We should include some match vids (vs Bayer Leverkusen and mine vs Portugal :D) just in case anyone needs reminding.

I still think TS 80. That means even if the cost is not raising the ACC at all.
He just can't be Zidane with a green value in TS...

I really dont understand how you guys cant dribble with the current 98-02 stats, are your thumbs broken lol? I find them to be extremely unrealistic and all i ever play is top player, its to the point that its game breaking, seriously..

Zidanes dribbling consisted of amazing close control, superb technique, and great body balance, he was able to shield the ball and make space with amazing touches and often relied on passes to get around fast players. He didnt have high accelertion and speed, He should without a doubt be green values for both.

Heres some realistic stats:
DA:96:--> i really dont think zidane was literally one of the best dribblers ever, there are quite a few players that impress me more and were honestly more effective. He shouldnt sit on a pedestal above all these players, zico, baggio, SAVICEVIC, micahael laudrup, current messi, prime riquelme, and i know he is slightly below the true gods of dribbling, ronaldinho, ronaldo, maradona, cruff, george best, jorge gonzalez ect..

AGIL:83--> Lets be honest he just wasnt that agile and this value allows him to weave between players

TS:78--> he didnt have the speed to lose defenders they often stuck with him even after he past them..
ACC:79
BB:89--> he was extremly strong and would often get fouled before he out right lost the ball.

I want realistic zidane stats cuz i for one use him on a number of of teams and im sure a lot of other ppl use him regularly too.

I don't agree about his TS and ACC being both in green.I'd give him BB=90. And about technique( I'm sorry Uzair but I find your 1st post on this page nothing else but senseless), it should be 99 and that's it!!! Just kids from PS gaming places can say something like: Ronaldinho is a perfect player. I can bet that in 20-50 years Zidane is going to be considered as one of top 3-5 players EVER in any kind of elections, as I can bet that at the same time Ronaldinho is going to be far away from there...
Seee you in 50 years ;)

lol ronaldinho wiped the floor with zidane in his prime, he was a better dribbler, better shooter, better goal scoring record, better technique, faster, more agile, and zidane wasnt much better of a passer. Only thing zidane had over ronaldinho was longevity, but to say zidane is better overall player than ronnie, is just ignorant favortism..

So how can anyone consider him to be a top 5 player ever, i dont even think he is top 10??? players like (in no order) ronaldo luis nazrio, messi, ronaldinho, cruiff, maradonna, pele, zico, platini, van basten, and i would say a prime kaka, were all superiour/more effective players.. Those are some of my favorites and by no means the top 10, there are other players that could be in there too. but bottom line there are a number of players that were a class apart from zidane.

it's all very subjective here...personnaly, i think ignorant favouritism (and i stress ignorant here) is saying that platini or kaka' were at any time better than zidane...and btw, there are no players a class apart from zidane, there are of course better players than him (ronaldinho, sure), but he IS the class apart player, he IS the elegance and the finesse that ronaldinho for example didn't have, ronaldinho had samba, not class...

and when you think of the best player ever you have to consider how long did he last, otherwise maradona would be miles away from pelé just for winning the italian league with napoli and the 86'WC...especially when you consider that pelé has 3 world cups, but was 17 in the first, hardly played in the second (garrincha did all the work) and was part of a great team in the third...maradona, as they say, did it all alone...then again, pelé spent a career scoring goals (over a thousand), while maradona by his 30's pulled up a chair and sat in the middle of the field passing the ball for others to score...so who's better? best season or best career?

honestly, i don't think it's worth discussing (i do think, however, that it is worth discussing why it isn't worth discussing :D), they're all great players who did a lot for the game, in their own way

PS - it will all be irrelevant when cr9 becomes the best player ever in football history :twisted: , under the management of the best trainer ever, o especial, the special one, il speciale, soon to be el special... 8-) josé mourinho...

IMO:

Def @ 50-52
TS @ 79
ACC @ 82
SPS @ 88-89


Updated with these but Acc could be level with Gourcuff @81

also dropped SPA one point as I wouldnt say there was a ( red value ) gap between him and Ronaldinho Fabregas.

In addition:


Seriously though, I agree with Choccy, I think ZZ loved doing superbly ambitious passes like that but he wasn't quite as clinical to be at a God like value and to be that far ahead of the likes of the Dinho and Totti. I personally think that he should have the same passing as in the second post

Same could be said for teamwork which come down to 88 at the least. Ive tried that value with the like of Ronaldinho, Kaka, Platin, Zico, Laudrup etc ( some updates needed there I think :P ) and I have gotten some good results with the combination of trickster and all those sexy special dribbling cards.

I remember him playing on the left side for Real Madrid at times its hard to say he played as a pure SM or like a AM on the left side like Gerrard for Ingerrrland. Im also for re-raising dribble speed to 85 I wouldn't rate him below Cantona here.

I can't believe the stats I made from his Bordeaux era haven't even been taken into consideration for the 1st post, you can't just make a 26 year old Zidane appear out of the blue, as if he had no previous life or progress. I think must of us know these stats from his earlier years are a must, cuz no one becomes Balo d Or from scratch, right? I'm not saying they are allready perfect or nothing like it, but I strongly recommend their analysis and further upgrade to the first post...

Cheers, Fever ;)

I think these stats are really good, but I would like to make some suggestions.

Firstly, although I am sure this has been discussed to death, I think Zidane should have a higher SPA than 94, I understand the boost a red digit gives and I think 95-96 would be a better value imo. I consider Zidane on the same level if not slightly inferior to Michael Laudrup in his short passes, particularly in his later years such as euro 2004.

I believe Zidane's technique is 99, but I am sure I will not win this argument.

Also, I think his FKA could go up to 89ish, he was a beast.

I think Acceleration could go down 1, Zidane was known for not being quick.

His teamwork could be 89-90 imo, Zidane could slot into a team and immediately start pulling strings be it via great passing or awesome dribble skills. This was proven as he came out of retirement for France and was the key man immediately for them. He just blended in straight off.

Finally, Shot technique imo could be as high as 89-90, as demonstrated in the Champions League final, his shot technique is phenomenal, with his SA at 80, I don't think it would massively overpower him if these changes happened.
