Zidane admires Olympique Marseille midfielder
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is rumored to be using his son to beat Barcelona in the hunt for Marseille’s young star Maxime Lopez.
Lopez is said to be the second target of the Spanish giants since last season but Spanish media claimed that Zidane’s son could convince the player to choose Santiago Bernabeu because they have good relations with the 19-year-old playmaker.
Last season, Zidane expressed his admiration for the player when questioned about the player’s rise in the press conference.
“Lopez? I have known him for a long time. Especially my son, who knew him well, they played together in Aix-en-Provence, “said the Madrid boss last year.
“He always has an amazing talent for youth his age. It was amazing to see what he did, not only in that age, because at this age he had no effect but because of the personality he showed in the match.
“He ran a lot, but also got a lot of play and made his colleagues play well.”
