forty years of elegance and amazingness

June 23, 2012

I’m not sure if “amazingness” is an actual word (it probably isn’t, and the spell checker says it’s not) but it’s hard to find words that accurately describe the feelings that Zinedine Zidane evoke in me.  I found out that he was on the cover of GQ France’s July edition, and so I thought I’d share the pictures, and then I realized that today is also his 40th birthday, and so it’s a nice coincidence, no?

Several days ago, Zizou spoke with COPE’s “El Partido de las 12” program (have a listen here).  During the chat, he said that his role in Real Madrid has not changed, that he’ll continue to be close to the team and his star pupil Karim Benzema next season, although “we’ll see what happens in the future.”

Zidane also praised Andrés Iniesta during the interview, saying that Iniesta is so good that he could even play as a goalkeeper.

Iker responded the next day: “I don’t agree with Zizou (laughs).  I’m not going to speak anymore with Zizou.”  Jajajaja!!

My French is very limited, so I can’t translate the article.  If anyone wants to step in and do that, I’ll be very grateful.

    Well I asked my sister, who reads and writes well in French if she would be able to, and she tried translating the cover and mistranslated one of the titles to be “I’ve always wanted to have a son” when it actually means “I’ve always wanted to be a boy” so maybe not. hahaha
