Zidane has never heard of Tottenham Hotspur

A great little article in the Daily Mail today says that Zinedine Zidane was rejected by Spurs as a teenager because Gerry Francis branded him ‘too wooden’.

Apparently, when Zidane was asked this week about his trial with the north London club he looked confused and said “who”?

His translator apologised and explained: “I don’t think he has heard of Tottenham Hotspur.”

I’m sure now he’s glad he was turned down by Spurs, he’s had a career anyone who plays football would dream of!
