With the Real Madrid head coach
nominated for FIFA’s Best Men’s Coach
award, the world’s most expensive player
has hailed his countryman
France star Paul Pogba has spoken of his
admiration for his idol Zinedine Zidane,
hailing his “beautiful” style as a player.

Zidane inspired France to the 1998 World
Cup title, with two goals in the final, and
Pogba has revealed that he would only
ever focus on the now Real Madrid head
coach when watching his sides play.
The 44-year-old, who guided Madrid to
success in the Champions League and the
Club World Cup in 2016, has been
nominated for FIFA’s Best Men’s Coach
award, but Pogba is still in awe of
Zidane’s talents on the pitch.
“I admire him a lot,” he told FIFA.com .
“When I was younger, I was watching his
videos, the way he was playing.
“I love big players, but there are some
players who have something extra. On the
pitch you have 11 players, in the squad,
22, and you see only one or two.

“You always see him doing something
special, the way he’s playing, it’s beautiful
to see. Ronaldinho was the same, these
are players who have something special –
he has that.
“I was always watching him. The ball was
in one place but I was always looking for
Zidane.”
