Zinedine Zidane Net Worth : $70 Million

One of the most decorated footballers in the world Zinedine Zidane, is a retired French footballer and currently an assistant coach at Spanish club Real Madrid. He is fondly referred to as ‘Zizou’ by his fans and is known for his elegant style of play and forward thinking nature that has seen him named the Best European Footballer of The Past 50 Years by UEFA.

He grew up in the tough neighbourhood of Marseille where he started playing football with his fellow children. At the age of 10, he started playing for US Saint-Henri. He subsequently played for other clubs such as SO Septemes-les-Vallons, AS Cannes, Bordeaux, Juventus and Real Madrid.

His international career has seen him play for France although he is both a French and Algerian citizen. He has represented France in the 1998, 2002 and 2006 World Cup events. He was famously sent off the pitch during the 2006 World Cup final for head butting Italian player, Marco Materazzi. He subsequently retired and since then has taken an advisory role in football matters. The 41 year old is worth $70 million.
